What Is The Sedona Weather Like In Spring?Winter RecapThe dusting of snow above was captured on February 24th.  During the last 3 months, a scene like this has been uncommon. Sedona is known to get snow from time to time, but you better enjoy it while it is there because it doesn't last long.  This is why many of us appreciate it.  Sedona doesn't see "deep freeze" conditions. It makes you appreciate the beauty of the red rocks such as Coffeepot Rock and Thunder Mountain above.  The red rock goes crimson in contrast to the green pines, junipers, and snow. It's Mother Nature's way of putting on her make-up and letting you know how beautiful she is. So far in 2022, we have had 5 inches of snow spread out over the last 4 months with another 2.43 inches of rain.  We had a total of 45 days ou...

Sedona HistoryI saw this image (above) and couldn't believe it.  I have seen a lot of historical images but this hit home. This was taken in 1968.  Where I live in Soldiers Pass won't be built for another 20 years - (1988).  I can't believe that none of the roads are paved.  This image was taken from Airport Mesa. It is a picture of West Sedona.I t spurred me to look up when the Sedona airport was founded.  It was founded in 1955.   You can find out more information here.  Obviously, there must have been a road, probably a dirt road like all the others you see below.  It is very hard to see, but those roads are not flat as they appear. Recent ImagesSedona TourismSedona has 3 million visitors a year.  This is a town that has a little over 10,000 residents that call Sedona "home".  As bea...

Happy St. Patrick's Day From Sedona!RecapIn the 15 years, I have lived in Sedona, we have never attended a St. Patrick's Day Parade.  For many of those years, we were traveling.  So, we thought this was the perfect time to support the community and see what it was all about.  I would have posted this yesterday but yet again, we were traveling!No disappointment here!  Even though a whole lot of people showed up. It was easy parking and plenty of space to find a spot to enjoy the parade.  It lasted about 45 minutes.  Just about every participating float and venue were handing out candy, rulers, or pencils to the kids.  Next time I need to bring a bag for Tristan! The mayor and city council were out walking the parade with lots of goodies for the little ones.  Besides all the Fire and Poli...

Daffodils "O'Plenty" In The Cottages At CoffeepotNarcissus (Daffodil) is the birth flower of those who are born in March.  The image above is the monument light at the head of my driveway. A few years ago, I noticed sprouts coming up in late February or early March.I talked with our landscaper for the Cottages and asked him about them.  Come to find out, he had been planting these bulbs sporadically all over the community.  What a wonderful surprise! Everywhere you walk or drive in our little community of 34 homes, you will see daffodils this time of year.  Even though it is 25º as I write this, you know that spring is here!  It is hitting you right in the face.  What is really nice to see is how these seem to multiply every year as well. Once they are planted, you don't need to do anyt...

February 2022 Challenge: "What's Your Story?" Post 2 Hosted by: Carol Williams  & Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker Caffeine and Hard Rock! The Life of A SalespersonPreFaceJack Moran - My DadAs I look back to the person who influenced me the most when it came to working as well as ethical behavior,  I would have to point to my dad.  Other than babysitting jobs for neighbors, I was not allowed to have a job until I graduated high school.  As the oldest of 5 children, I could have easily been the designated babysitter for my own family.  My mother would not allow that to happen. She did not want me to be stuck watching my siblings. My dad was a natural salesman. AS mentioned in my first post, he studied law and met my mother.  They got married and plans for a law career changed.  ...

February 2022 Challenge: "What's Your Story?" Post 1 Hosted by: Carol Williams  & Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker Preface"There are always flowers for those who want to see them" - Henri Matisse I love to spend time in my garden. It is a form of meditation for me.  When I see flowers I am always drawn to them to get a whiff of the sweet fragrance.  I will stop and smell them before I move on.  Each fragrance triggers a memory and enjoying the scent of flowers reminds me of all the happy memories that life brings to each and every one of us.  At this stage of my life, I have many happy memories to be thankful for. Some of those memories have been triggered by the pleasant aroma of flowers. In my journey through my roadmap of time, I will be sharing how I got to where I am today...

Rain - Snow - Wind Mother Nature Is Speaking To Sedona! Yesterday was one of the few days since we moved to Sedona that was below freezing most of the daytime hours.  Why? We kept getting waves of snow! Right after midnight, the morning hours were at 41º but that steadily went down to below freezing temps.  This kept the snow light and fluffy until this morning.  As you can see the temp was 20.9º right at dawn.  That increased to over 40º and the snow started to melt and evaporate. The only snow left right now is in the shade.  My neighbor has a rain chain and when it snows and the rain freezes it makes for a spectacular ice formation!Lastly - here is a video that shows the snow coming down. You can see the snow swirling around in the video. The wind was up and it was swirling the snow ...
