When you see the temperature in Prescott is going to be 17 degrees, you may think “the weather outside is frightful.” In this episode the Pickle Lady explains why it may be a lot more delightful than you might realize, and why even folks from the Deep South often find Winter to be the best of Prescott’s four glorious seasons.
hello what’s happening out there today here with pickle lady cheers and our pickled brigade mugs that contain non-caffeinated coffee beverages for all of our 18 year old uh our home buyers home buyers that we’re setting ourselves we’re not trying to influence and we’re trying to influence not at all yeah but what we are here to talk about is a lot of people who move here we talk about how we have four beautiful seasons and none are too extreme then we have some clients and they move in and they’re like you said it wouldn’t be cold and tonight it’s going to be 17 17 degrees well here’s the thing does it get chilly willy at night time yeah it does it does but the difference is when it’s 17 degrees it’s usually three o’clock in the morning and you’re when you’re already snuggled under your coverage 17 degrees in your bed yeah yeah and it’s not 17 degrees in the daytime no for instance last night we had a pretty cold night now we’re standing outside it’s in the 50s yeah i want to say last night it was down to you know 27 yeah it’s getting up to close to 60. yeah um look at this weather it’s like spring here yeah so don’t let these low temperatures that you see like oh my gosh it’s 15 degrees hardly ever happens yeah when you see 17 degrees in a place like idaho for example it’s gonna be like 17 degrees all day long oh yeah you know it it doesn’t work that way here no yeah it gets very chilly sometimes at nighttime yeah so don’t worry about oh i looked on the weather channel and it says it’s 17 degrees there but they’re at yeah it’s a cold place it’s a cold place it’s not it’s not it’s not it’s not it’ll be fine you have your fireplace on and you’re sleeping yeah because it’s three o’clock in the morning no one’s like a few days in the winter where it’s in the 40s yeah yeah it it it’ll it’ll be cold at night and you know it might be drizzly so it’s really cold or whatever and you do something called stay home uh but like then you know the next day the day after would be up in the 60s that’s the thing the thing about prescott winters is that they’re not relentless they relent uh you know yeah that’s a good way yeah you you get inner space with days where you can run around in your shorts without a shirt i know you know the pickle lady likes to do that and so she’ll do that you know trying to keep the family safe we got to get to keep the family safe don’t forget so don’t let that throw you because yeah it can get pretty cold at nighttime when you’re sleeping but in the daytime look at your day yeah it’s gorgeous it’s in the 60s yesterday i was out taking some buyers i was like wow i’m getting a little hot actually i’m like i’m starting to sweat yeah so don’t let a lot of variety and you know i i i’m from the south so i’m not a cold weather guy but you know i enjoy having a few days where we’ll have a little snow or you know it’s a good day to have a a cup of coffee with the pickle lady right you know sit down on the back porch under a blanket and snuggle and you know all that kind of stuff and then when you get tired of being cold then you get 60 degrees you get 60 degrees yeah and spring has sprung again but the key to remember is do we have snow occasionally is it gone by the next day pretty much usually gone by the afternoon eighty-five percent of the time it’s like no big deal folks i mean you’ll see we had snow a few days ago you might see some snow in the background a little bit of white you know usually by the afternoon the the asphalt the the the roads get warm enough that all the snow’s off the roads and you’ll be on the grass and the bacon lunch you’ll see a little snow no now he’s getting scientific with your ass you know a little snow spice a little snow it’s kind of like having a little gray on the side of here well i don’t have that they tell me i’m distinguished now because mine is minus faith i don’t know any more than i used to i look like that so yeah what we’re saying is folks don’t let those teen temperatures freak you out it is a non-event event 100 non-event where can they find you you can find me at prescottpicklelady.com or we sell prescott.com for our listeners out there people looking to sell homes in the prescott area and there’s always the prescott lady hotline you know what 713-302-1964 introduced ourselves i am diane bro by the way this is randall bro it did that at the beginning yeah maybe i don’t think so it’s hard to edit these things people it’s hard to edit these things it is with the pickle lady she’s not always working on this i’m not i’ve got a lot going on a lot a lot up there houses i’m thinking about people coming in showing that house that’s what i’m thinking as we’re recording she does it never shuts off folks it never shuts off it’s always going to work that’s not very nice there it is that’s not nice all right cheers all right cheers have a great day and we’ll see you next time bye

anybody coming in we’d love to take you around and show you all about prescott lakes and what it’s about but most importantly we want to talk to you about the weather because we’ve had a number of inquiries yes oh my it’s god cold i can’t do the winters i can’t actually you can and you will love them i am from the deep south you cannot get any hotter and milder than that no no and uh we love winter here it’s brisk it’s beautiful um and you can see we’re suffering we’re really suffering here we thought about being naked for this because it’s not good no not me yeah but we yeah yeah it wouldn’t be a good yeah it wouldn’t be a good thing but what’s nice about winter here is uh at nighttime it might get in the 20s or low 30s and you’re like oh that’s too much that’s true but you’re snug as a bug in your nice warm house then you wake up to this beautiful sunshine yeah and then in your bed you’re in your mind by cold you’re in your back that’s right who cares why you’re sleeping how cold it gets but when you wake up in the morning uh by 11 o’clock it’s up to the 40s by noon it’s up to the 50s and it’s just beautiful sunshine yeah uh mild mild today yeah last night was the lunar eclipse so i was out on the back porch checking out the blood moon and all that stuff and i know it’s been as late as 10 o’clock and it was still you know it was fine so yeah don’t let that don’t don’t let that scare you i’ve also had questions about the snow we might have snow three at the most four times during the winter season january is our coldest month we’ve had two little snowfalls this month but the snow plows come in we’ve got all the infrastructure and take care of that yeah you’re not snowbound this isn’t the blizzards in new york city and and buffalo most of the snows last like hours you know so it’ll snow overnight and so you wake up and it’s beautiful winter wonderland blah blah blah and then usually before dinner it’s mostly gone absolutely it gets up to in the 50s every day so so you get like the best of both worlds excuse me my hair’s flying all over the place that’s a winter gust coming through so devastating gust so you get to enjoy the beautiful white snow there’s no yellow snow here no if you know what i mean yeah it’s gone all melts away it all melts away there’s no snow drifts that sit there for weeks and weeks and weeks and become dirty with the grime and you know new year’s eve we had a crazy a crazy storm uh you know it really affected a lot of the surrounding areas we got six inches which is a lot first very unusual yes you know by by new year’s eve night you know uh the plows had done their than their work and the roads were all accessible uh the next day the big milk starts you know i think actually the next day was still uh still kind of cold but i mean by like friday you know within a few days it’s pretty much gone you know don’t let the cold don’t let the cold scare you out it’s wonderful it’s it’s really nothing to speak of plus we have hardly any humidity so this is a dry cold yeah it’s not that damp rainy where it gets into your bones and yeah absolutely not this is absolutely dry dry cold and low humidity so
