The town of Pinetop-Lakeside posted a “Pray for Snow” flyer on its Facebook page on Dec. 29, encouraging the public to pray for snow. The city of Show Low also wanted to get involved with the effort. The flyer read: “The town of Pinetop-Lakeside and the city of Show Low together invite all residents and businesses to join us in our ‘Pray for Snow’ campaign. The warm dry weather is negatively impacting our local businesses and economy and will become even worse during the spring and summer months. Please accept this invitation to post this flyer in your business and pass the word on.” Area churches welcomed the opportunity to take part and urged their congregations to fast and pray for snow. Little precipitation has fallen in the White Mountains since mid-September, with the October to December period ranking among the driest on record for several regional communities.
