Half melted snow among small hail and rain fell yesterday where I live. Elevation 1033 feet.

The mountains directly to the south turned white!

Here's a news article on actual real snow in the greater Phoenix area: https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-weather/2019/02/21/snow-closes-roads-northern-arizona-while-rain-drenches-phoenix-area/2941543002/

Ok, now that's screwed up man. Snow in the dessert. That article said somethin about 104 years since that much snow fell. Tell me the weather isn't fucked up.

My friend just moved to the Phoenix area, last October, she was living in Kansas City, but came to Canada for a year, to clear things up after her mom passed away. She did not like the winters in Canada or Kansas City, said she was moving her and her dog to the warm area.

Wonder how she feels now..

Yes fir sure the weather patterns have made a drastic change.. Where I live we get snow in the winter, it's just natural to have 10" dropped at one snow storm.. The weather pattern has made a drastic change, my area has had no major snow storms this year, we have had more rain then normal. In fact we had heavy rain all night, today we are having terrible high winds, garbage cans blowing down the street, limbs snapping off the trees..

Gimme back my snow storms..

Imo Aruba would be a good place to live.
Look at the yearly temps:

Also major storms such as hurricanes or tornadoes are rare.
Their last major storm was in 2007 and it did minimal damage.
That environment sounds ideal to me.

The GTA (Greater Toronto Area) yearly weather is not good and the temperature fluctuates too much even on a daily basis.

I take it you live in the Toronto area. My niece lives in Toronto: https://www.mandybo.com/

I lived in Oakville for a few years back in the 60's

Toronto is a great city and so is Oakville but our climate for about 3 - 4 months per year is just terrible.

I've seen snow in Jordan. That's kinda desert-ish.

That my friend, I can agree with you on..Times are changing, seems like August is getting to be a very hot month, Sepy. is also been extra warm, October has been also warm, then all of a sudden it's winter overnight..
