Brewer marks 9-11 with speech at ASU West

Gov. Jan Brewer addressed a small crowd at the Arizona State University West College Republicans’ Sept. 11 remembrance ceremony. With 2,977 U.S. flags – one for each person killed – as a backdrop, Brewer recalled the messages of love sent by victims to their loved ones before being killed in the terrorist attack.

“These are wonderful markers for us as we move through our daily lives, as time moves us further away from the tragedies of that day,” Brewer said.

The Blizzard of 1916 (access required)

This is Main Street in Bisbee on January 21, 1916, the day after the biggest snowfall in city history. The storm began on January 19 with heavy winds that tore off roofs in the Warren District. The wind abated, the sky cleared briefly—then it began to rain. The streets soon ran like rivers. The sky cleared again in the afternoon, but by 5 p.m. snow began to fall, increasing throughout the night until by morning all of southern Arizona from Benson to the Mexican border was blanketed.
