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.
