    So up here in Flagstaff, And surrounding areas, they are saying a HUGE, storm this week. It is already started snowing now, and they said it could be up to 3-5 feet this week!!!!! Thats crazy!

    Hope i dont get snowed in on friday morning. I gotta drive down to Phx for my eye surgery.

    I saw that too. I wanted to go up this weekend to visit friends at NAU but if you all get that much snow there is no way because AZ snow plows suck. and I'm sure they will close the I-17 because people don't know how to drive in snow.

    Yeah thats true. But either they don't have enough of them or ADOT is horrible at planning. Because you can never get up there if they get snow. In Colorado where I used to live the roads never closed. Only one of the highways up in the mountian because it was VERY steep and they would get 4ft in a 12hr period.

    That's what my girlfriend was telling me. She said theres not much base and many of the resorts haven't opened all the runs. She's out there going to school right now. Actually snowboarding today lol...lucky!

    I will be out there a month from today to visit her, I will be there for about 5 days. 2.5 days will be spent up in keystone snowboarding I hope theres a decent amount by then.

    It just sucks cuz i work till 130 in the morning, and all the roads are icedover. I also live in Kachina Village and there are only 2 ways to get up to my house. If there is an accident on both of them, or there is too much snow, then they shut it down and i cant go home.
