From Phoenix to Jerome
Jerome Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
So I get down to Phoenix...go out to dinner with my family...which I think I still feel better, until I got the food infront of me. And we hangout for a bit. We get home..and guess what? I'm still not 100% better...Blahhh...there went the food into the porcelin thrown.
The next day I did feel 100% better...no really, I did..and we went and got sushi and sushimi...I've never had it before... It was good...it's not something that I would go out of my way to get...but I was impressed.
Finally saturday. You have 4 people with 4 different ideas and it's hard to get us to go to the same place and want to do the same things... Finally, my uncle, cousin and I convince my Aunt to go to Jerome, AZ. Which I got to see SNOW again!!! We drove 2 hours into the mountains of Arizona (about 8000 feet above sea level) to go to this ghost hippie town and see the sights.
Well, I do have to say I was slightly dissapointed because I did not hear any paranormal activities.
Some Snow Fun!!!
In Jerome I was at 8000 feet and there was 3 inches of SNOW there and the roads were so bad that SUV's were getting stuck...which was pretty exhilerating. But that's not the bizarre part. We drove back down to Phoenix and we were watching the colts/patriots game and looked outside and guess what we saw??? SNOW!!!! It was a mix of sleet and snow...which apparently is a record. I saw the newspaper today and it gave some interesting facts:
The last reported snowfall was Dec.
So I was in a little bit of history here on my vacation....and apparently since I left it's been snowing in Pittsburgh...and cold, where as before I left it's been more like spring than winter. The only snow I saw in Pittsburgh was 2 tuesdays ago when I dropped my friend off at the airport and the only reason why I saw it was because I had to get up at 8AM and the snow melted in like 10 minutes!!! AUGH!!!
Just in case you're wondering about the mysterious sickness...it wasn't food poisoning and apparently it's highly contagious because I didn't have any physical contact with anybody and everybody I visited got sick. Apparently it was going around the country and I just brought it with me...who knows where I got it from!!! And now I'm on Phoenix time and I'm not tired in Pittsburgh Time!!! AUGH!!!
