But then, we're spoiled here in Phoenix. When it's slushy in the East, we're bask ing under the warmest, driest, sunniest skies in the United States. Take this month, December. You can ex pect every day to be sunny and the temper ature absolutely delightful. The last time we had measureable snow in December? Never in recorded history. Will we be seeing you this winter?
