Arizona : The Land of Sunshine and Silver, Health and Prosperity, the Place for Ideal Homes (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Arizona: The Land of Sunshine and Silver, Health and Prosperity, the Place for Ideal Homes All over the plateau regions snows fall, sometimes to great. Depth about the higher mountains, but in the lower valleys snow is rarely seen, save on the distant hill and mountain tops. And even at the coldest of the elevated regions there is not felt the same discomfort in our-dry cold, as in the damp cold of even temperature elsewhere. Though the summer rains of July and August are sufficient for grazing, purposes, sunshine rarely fails a day. Even in the plateau regions, where the rain supply suffices for agricultural needs, and at the mountains, where rains fall in abundance daily, in season, no day is without its sun shining full and free, not merely behind the clouds. Not being able to obtain reports from all the Signal Service stations, we can only take Prescott, as it is a fair representative for the whole County in average. For the year 1889, and up to june 30, 1890, the mean temperature and total precipitation for the different months were: Mean Temperature. T otal Precipitation. 1889 1890 1889 1890 02 42 (including snow) About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
