Last you heard we were soaking up the Sedona scenery back during the first week of November. The weather was holding until then, but a check of the forecast indicated it was time to get out of town, a cold front was coming in and it was time to head down into the desert.
Only one problem, though – we had to head up the hill first to pick up a Care package in Flagstaff which had been mailed to us, so we drove up Oak Creek Canyon and got it. We did laundry and shopped while there, since we had been out boondocking for a week, and the weather was moving in while we did. Small hail and many close lightning strikes accompanied us during these tasks, so it is with relief that we headed south on I-17 in mid-afternoon, knowing that the overnight forecast in Flagstaff was for 4 to 6 inches of snow.
We almost waited too late: we passed spots where the thunderstorms moving through the area had dumped enough hail to look like snow alongside the interstate – I was grateful that our timing was such that we weren’t there for the big event.
