We are having a spell of odd weather - fierce blowing winds, scattered showers, cooler temperatures and did I say "fierce blowing winds"?? The winds have been stirring up so much dust that the Catalinas (north of town) are nearly invisible. This view is from the University of Arizona's School of Agriculture campus off Campbell.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
