Snow will probably never fall on this Phoenix, Arizona yard.

Watching for winter—
how great my disappointment
when I see no snow!

      Believe it or not, it really does snow in Phoenix, but the last time was in 1998.

  3. I have lots I’ll be happy to send some on down your way if you send me some warm sunshine in return!

  4. I rrely see snow here on the west coast – but that makes me very happy. When it does come, if it comes at all, it is light, and melts straight away. But the beach is beautiful while it is so briefly here.

  5. My Beloved Sandra returned (last night) to her Canadian-border Vermont home after a week with her daughters in sunny-bright, hot & humid Florida. She was NOT smiling…

  6. Oh lol no snow. We hardly see snow anymore but we can always go to the mountains for that

  7. We had our first snow yesterday and brutal temps. Cozy and warm in here though!

  8. Luckily I had my fair share of snow in England the first thirty years of my life, In Australia where I live now it snows rarely and melts soon after touching the ground and I haven’t seen it in years…or want to!

  9. Well, there is snow here and baby it’s cold outside.

  10. I can understand the disappointment, but being snowed in for days isn’t much fun, and the beautiful whiteness soon turns to grey mush. As long as indoors is cosy and warm, I just sit it out. Today we just have grey skies and rain.

  11. Come to my house, we;ve got plenty!!! 😉

  12. I understand that folk from the east side of the US go to spend their winters in Phoenix; snowbirds! Having spent a holiday in Phoenix a few years ago, then I’d happily go back there now, to get a break from cold, gloom and rain. Camelback Mountain was a super backdrop!!

  13. I didn’t know that it can snow in Phoenix. I loved our 50th anniversary trip to the Grand Canyon with family. We also took in the Painted Desert and Phoenix. I really liked the area a lot. Have a nice weekend.

  14. I remember the last time it snowed here. People were dancing in the streets, happy to see it.

  15. We had snow the day we returned from Ireland…Never have it this early! You just never know! Have a grand weekend!!

  16. I’ll bet you’re right. Makes me wonder if they have ever gotten snow? I can remember once about 20 years ago getting snow where I live in S CA.

    We get snow off and on over winter. Rarely a large amount. I love snow. We were fortunate to be in Ann Arbor, Michigan last week when they had a day record of 11 inches of snow. It was beautiful and we didn’t have to get out in it so we sat drinking hot chocolate and watched the snow pile up with large and small flakes on the patio table counting the inches. I hope that one day you will get a dusting.

  18. Lovely haiku ~ think you will have to go North to see snow!

    Happy Day to You,

  19. I hope to see snow sometime this winter but for now I am content with the nice sunny weather (around 7 degrees celcius) we have here in the Netherlands. However, I AM dreaming of a white Christmas…

  20. a road trip to prescott with answer your white quest!
