Snow Pounds Coast...Move to Sunny Scottsdale Arizona!

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

This week heavy record snow levels and much needed rain has pounded the West Coast of the US from California and Nevada to Washington. Although good news for those that  have been stating our planet only had about 4 years left before melting in heat and floods, actually people are flocking to Sunny Scottsdale and Arizona from all over the the US and World.

The NY Times reported on December 27, 2021 by Neil Vigdor, "A sprawling winter storm system continued to wreak havoc on Tuesday in the Western United States, where an 81-mile stretch of an interstate in the Sierra Nevada remained closed by blinding snow while temperatures plunged to record lows in Seattle."

ABC News Reports

The Guardian in an Associated Press article on December 26, 2021 stated, "A heavy Christmas storm caused whiteout conditions and closed highways in the mountains of northern California and Nevada, with forecasters warning that travel in the Sierra Nevada could be difficult for several days.

Rainstorms also continued to hit parts of southern California. The conditions were difficult but welcome developments in a parched state where the Sierra snowpack had been at dangerously low levels after weeks of dry weather.

The state department of water resources reported on Christmas Eve that the snowpack was between 114% and 137% of normal across the Sierra range, with more snow expected.

On Friday night into Saturday, 20 inches of snow fell at Homewood on Lake Tahoe’s west shore. About a foot was reported at Northstar near Truckee and 10in at the Mount Rose ski resort on the southwest edge of Reno.

Rockslides caused by heavy rain closed more than 40 miles of coastal Highway 1 in the Big Sur region, south of the San Francisco Bay Area. There was no estimate for the reopening of the scenic stretch, which is frequently shut after wet weather.

“Expect major travel delays on all roads,” the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Reno, Nevada, said on Twitter. “Today is the type of day to just stay home if you can. More snow is on the way too!”

The NWS issued a winter storm warning for greater Lake Tahoe until 1am Tuesday because of possible “widespread whiteout conditions” and wind gusts that could top 45mph.

The latest in a series of blustery storms hit southern California with heavy rain and wind that flooded streets and knocked down power lines late on Saturday.

Gusts toppled trees, damaged carports and blew a track-and-field shed from a Goleta high school into a front yard two blocks away, according to the Santa Barbara county fire department. No injuries were reported.

More than 1.8in of rain fell over 24 hours in San Marcos pass in Santa Barbara county, while Rocky Butte in San Luis Obispo county recorded 1.61in, the NWS said.

In the San Bernardino Mountains, east of Los Angeles, crews were repairing a section of State Route 18 that washed down a hillside after heavy rain on Thursday. The closure of the major route into the Big Bear ski resort area could last for weeks, officials said."

We really have been enjoying lots of much needed rain this year in California.  Right now, though, I am enjoying your sunny Arizona.

A good friend was at the game today.  I am excited about the opportunity to see the local sports next year with my dad.  We did see the Giants play the Diamondbacks once.  I am looking forward to a lot more fun stuff around Phoenix.
