SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Wednesday’s winter storm really put on a show here in the Valley.
A lot of people will be talking about the incredible shots of snow and ice falling in many parts of the Valley, from Gold Canyon to Scottsdale.
There was plenty of sunshine Thursday, but that doesn’t mean Wednesday’s storm didn’t still have an impact.
Leftover ice really put a damper on some people's plans.
Ric Wesselman and his buddies had one thing planned for Thursday – to play a round of golf.
They’re from Spokane, Washington and didn’t expect to see the golf courses in Arizona looking like skating rinks.
Aside from a spot carved out for golf lessons, no one was able to play on the Talking Stick Golf courses Thursday morning after Wednesday’s winter storm.
Three quarters of the golf course was covered in ice and all crews could do was wait for it to melt.
It was a similar picture on the other side of the 101 freeway.
Crews at the Salt River Fields used anything they could, mowers, shovels, even leaf blowers to try to clear the ice that was covering the field.
Crews say they’ve never planned for an icy event such as this so they’re just trying anything they can.
Spring Training begins Friday, but Thursday the Diamondbacks and the Rockies had to adjust their practice.
Golfer Ric and his friends had to head south to find greener pastures for their golf game.
