You're lying.

I see green in that picture. You are obviously in lush, tropical region...possibly Thailand or Malaysia.

What is the altitude at ground level, and the altitude of the heights the snow is lying on?

I think I heard the news say heavy snow level was as low as 2000 ft but I could swear it was much lower than that in some places.

These pics were taken at Warner rd. and Greenfeild in Gilbert... not sure how close that is to Chandler airport.

My parents live out there. I was raised in Chandler.

On the 60 out towards Globe, it looked real low. Beautiful.

Just so everyone understands why this is a big deal, most of the mountains higher then 2000 feet which can be seen from anywhere in Phoenix have snow on them. Phoenix is at sea level if I recall correctly.

Its been a very very very long time since this has happened. Especially considering our 143 days of no rain.

Phoenix's elevation is 1,117 feet and is located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. It is a sprawling metropolitan desert area that extends from trendy Scottsdale in the northeast, to Glendale and numerous expanding towns in the west. In the heart of the Greater Phoenix area is Tempe, an active university town. To the east lies the Mormon-founded city of Mesa. Desert mountains surround the area, creating “The Valley of the Sun." There are six lakes within a 75-minute drive of Phoenix.

About time, I drove through on 40 early last week and I couldn't believe the lack of snow on the San Francisco peaks.
