We are definitely experiencing some wacky weather these last 2 days. First we had high winds - VERY high winds in my neighborhood, in fact. Then came the cold rains. The Catalina Mountains were almost invisible through the dust that the winds kicked up. The soft grey sky has its own kind of beauty, though.
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. (:
