Reporter being snowplowed shows why Phoenix is the place to live

If anyone asks you why you live in the Valley, just pull out your smart phone and show them this example of winter weather.

For people who have grown up where there is not snow, this pretty much sums up why Phoenix is such an easy place to live.

Shoveling snow is a pain, especially when snow plows throw it back into your driveway, over your car, and sometimes, the snowplow can hit you when you’re not paying attention. Which means that if you’re not putting your head on a swivel, you’re asking for trouble.

Snow is pretty to look at, but it can be a real witch to live with! And don’t even get me started about the cold; I will be relaxing in my backyard in my shorts.
