Finally, some snow!

The animals at Bearizona were among those very excited about this week's winter storm.

The high country, including Flagstaff, has been waiting for some snow.

Those who live in the area said the mild, dry weather has been hurting business.

But, let it snow! Flagstaff picked up 5 inches of snow during this week's storm. And Williams saw close to half a foot.

However, by Wednesday morning, things were already clearing up, as the storm moved east and away from Arizona.  

Still, Bearizona residents always enjoy the snow whenever they get the chance.
