You wouldn’t normally expect snowfall in a place like Arizona, but last week Mother Nature decided to play a little trick on the locals by covering the Sonoran Desert in a fresh layer of snow. Many locals were surprised by such an event and quickly starter flooding social networks with pictures of snowy desert landscapes.
It’s not often that such an event occurs and seeing cacti and typical desert shrubs covered in snow is almost surreal. Sadly, one of the main reasons for this phenomenon might be global warming and if we don’t take measures to fight it, these types of occurrences might become increasingly common.
Check out the photos of the snowy desert in the gallery below – we’re sure you’ll be just as surprised as we were!
