Some of the scenes look just like here.  I especially loved the one of the reporter getting covered with snow.  It does make me long for the beach thoughcool

Me too Anna - and all those other places up north where I lived. As my DD says, you don't have to shovel sunshine!

Haven't been able to watch the video yet, but I just noticed a mention of snow in Tucson (with pics!) on one of the local news station's weather blog. Years and years ago I was in Tucson with SIL and niece and we get a healthy bit of snow.

I am going to send this to my daughter.

  Tucson snow today. If you click on the arrow in the picture second down, it should show more. We are having the Accenture PGA golf tournament right now, which should be interesting.

Not knowing YouTube protocol, I won't make any comments, but there are a few familiar scenes in the "TomTom's" video Jeane shared with this one, uploaded to YT in 2010.

Some of the scenes are the same Cathy but these are both You Tube videos - not sure what the situation is with TomTom (?).

Not knowing YT protocols and whether it's OK to *borrow* from others on the site, I'll just sit on my hands, but there's definitely been some borrowing going on there.
