Thanksgiving Day

I am taking care of our neighbor's horses while she is in Phoenix for the holiday, and walking out to check on them, I saw this:

When we moved here in 2003, the area was in the midst of a severe drought. People who had lived here for a long time were depressed because we didn't have any snowfall until mid-December, and that was miniscule compared to what they were used to. This year, we have had at least 3 storms that left snow on the peaks so far, and one that left about 3 inches in our yard. I am hopeful that the drought is beginning to recede. This is such a beautiful area, and when there is snow on the peaks, the view is stunning!
Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving...
