A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Arizona In Snow In 2010 And It Will Never Be Forgotten
Snow in Arizona can seem to be a bit of an anomaly. For visitors and many residents living away from the mountains and northern region, it’s an unexpected sight.
But a blizzard? That’s not exactly something we expect here in the Southwest but it does happen on occasion. The largest known blizzard took place in 1967, where eight days of almost non-stop snow where some areas saw 8-feet or more. We wrote about that one back in December (you can read more about it here) but the another massive snowstorm happened just a few years ago and still left many rural residents stranded for days.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
