Shortly before daybreak Tuesday the extent of the snowfall was becoming evident in the dawn light as seen on this brush along the top of Paseo Mexico in Rio Rico. The row of lights in the distance is the line of produce warehouses on East Frontage Road North of Ruby Road. Although schools were closed in Nogales and Rio Rico, area roads did not seem to have any snow on them but the beauty of the natural winter coating was undeniable.
