Hot Links: DPS Says N. Ariz. Snowstorm Worst in Its History; Feds Building "Virtual Fence;" Buckeye Council Politics Turn Ugly

Snow party: The state Department of Public Safety calls yesterday's snowstorm in northern Arizona the worst it has ever faced. The feds are building 53 miles of "virtual fence" along the border with Mexico that virtually works. Phoenix is No. 1! (In hotel vacancies -- not good). Peoria police are seeking a man suspected of stabbing two women. Buckeye town politics heats up. Not being able to re-enact a war is hell.
