Driving across the USA a few days ago, I went via the most Southern freeway in the continental USA. Partly I-8 then it merges into I-10 and crosses from Tucson Az. to El Paso, Texas where there is a big border crossing to Mexico a few dozen yards away. Yeah, that far south.
Well, obout 100 miles east of Tucson, maybe less, I started seeing snow. Remember the desert southwest is the hottest corner of north America…
Here are a couple of photos I took from inside the moving car. Why not stop for better photos? Some of the off and on ramps were not ploughed….
It started out not too bad over near Tucson
But got worse.
Eventually I had occasional snow flurries and such all the way across to near Las Cruces New Mexico. I took some more pictures along the way, including some road signs to prove where it was and one of the snow ploughs. Being unwilling to drive one handed in active snow I don’t have pictures during the flurries.
As I am doing this on the tablet, they are full res unedited. When back at my workstation I’ll reduce the res and may add some more.
My key takeaway? Were there any real Global Warming the hottest part of North America would not be under snow. This is more what you call same cold as always…
