One more concern I have: the snowfall in Flagstaff. I used to live in Spokane, Washington, and an average snowfall in 24 hours, in the height of winter, is about 4-6 inches. What is the daily winter snowfall like in Flagstaff? Is it a matter of a few inches or a few feet? Again, thank you for your help!

It's usually a few inches but has snowed a few feet on plenty of occasions.

Arizona has been in a drought for almost the past decade, so prior to this year precipitation has been much lighter than usual. However, within the last year, we have had so much rain and snow that it would hopefully signal the end of this drought.

This past winter, Flagstaff had more snow than I had seen there in awhile. The last time I was there, July 30th of this year, there was still snow on Humphrey's Peak (the tallest point in Arizona

I lived in Flagstaff for two years. The first winter I was there, we had only a little snow - less than what you'd get in Spokane. However, last winter was a different story. We had about 3 feet just after New Years. It melts fast though.

I'm from Canada and found Flagstaff to have alot milder weather than your area or mine.

I guess that depends on where in Flagstaff you're referring to. I was there this past July and there was still snow on Humphrey's Peak :-).
