So it appears that we are now, finally, in the clear, Tucson. The Storm of the Century of the Decade has blown through Southern Arizona, and it appears that Sonoran Superstorm Sofia (trademark pending, probably) has moved on.
Still, in the wake of S3, a number of questions have been left unanswered: who is still here to tend to the lawless, frozen hellscape in which we now reside? How long until we rise from the ashes of what we now call the Cold Pueblo? Who will sponsor the tribute concert in honor of the victims of the #TucsonBlizzard?
Okay, that's enough. The snowfall yesterday and last night was great fun for everyone (aside from the folks who were treated for hypothermia), and we've got the Tweets to prove it. Below the jump, the best of #TucsonBlizzard 2013.
The jokes on everyone going out of town to sk/snowboard. Looks like ill be able to hit the slopes on my road #tucsonblizzard

The kids in the schoolyard near my house are either shrieking about playing in the snow or eating each other. #tucsonblizzard #apocalypse

Remember to be politically correct when tweeting about the #TucsonBlizzard. The flakes are not big & fat, they are just big boned #Tucson

The snow is melting. This is nothing like the Great #TucsonBlizzard of Ought Seven, when it stayed for a day, bodies stacked like cord wood.
