Beautiful and sunny today in Sierra Vista AZ

Post by AdminJeff » Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:46 am

Looking for a great trip today to tombstone Arizona!!
It’s still 28 degrees but no need to “go modern”!

My wife came down with something so I’m on my own with the Lutz’s. I promised to document this trip along the way and post pics as we take stops. Assuming I have cell svc of course.

1) stopped at an old jail 14 miles outside of Tombstone
2) Tombstone next

On days like this no one laughs at the Archer's big fur coats.

I was just told that if it snows tomorrow the Fort Huachuca will be closed and no tour or banquet... typical government.

Hope you all had time to hit Boot Hill in Tombstone and took the quick trip down to Bisbee. That's another old town time forgot.

Not sunny today. Cold and windy. Snow predicted again tonight and tomorrow. Schools already closed. 1 car did the complete run today. 40 degrees for a high tomorrow vs. 67 normal.
Good T weather. Enjoyed the hoodies from the tour

Looks like the banquet is ON this afternoon at 3:00. The Fort is open and it’s snowing, although not much. Enough to stick to the cars but not the road.

We went to the Coronado National Monument this morning. It's about 500 feet higher elevation than Sierra Vista & it was snowing hard there. We were in the building there for about 20 minutes and while inside, our car was covered with over 1 inch of new snow. Temps were in the low 30's. Bummer.
This is supposed to be southern AZ and here we are with unseasonably cold weather!
Stay warm,

Keith, we have 40+" in Flagstaff, wish we could be there but not this time. Would have liked to see what the '25 would do in snow but have it down until I put the speedometer in. Garage is to cold for now, have a great time in the tour.

Hi Dick, Despite the unseasonably cold weather we had lots of fun on the tour. Yes, we heard that Flagstaff had 3 feet of snow. That's a bummer - really slows things down.
As a former Wisconsonite, you should know that in order to get things done on the T in the winter, you need to put a heater of some kind in your garage. :)

Hope everyone had a great time. Drove the Thursday tour route. Sunny and more snow than I have seen EVER in Southern Arizona in 50 years here
