Rough winter for Arizona

The winter season’s hardly begun, and it’s already been a rough one for some folks in northern Arizona.

In the Route 66 town of Kingman, barely a week after an unusual snowstorm struck there, high winds caused power outages and structural damage, reports the Kingman Daily Miner.

To top it off, temperatures also plummeted. That caused icing on Interstate 40 and led to numerous accidents.
