Arizona Gets Dusting of Snow, Newspaper Whines ‘We Might as Well Be Michigan’
We get it, southern Arizona, you have heat and deserts and snow and winter weather is a complete rarity. So perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the front page of Saturday's (2/23) Arizona Daily Star from Tuscon shouted out the headline, "We Might As Well be Michigan."
Of course this is southern Arizona - northern Arizona in the high country around Flagstaff regularly gets walloped with snow, so the state is not immune to a winter punch.
So just how rare is Tuscon snow? The city's cops had some fun with the rare winter event bringing out their crime lab to investigate a "white powdery substance."
Of course a few Michiganders caught wind of the Tuscon headline with the best reply coming from Northern Michigan University's School of Education, Leadership and Public Service.
Dear Arizona, welcome to the team.
