Unless you live in Tucson it's hard to understand how truly weird our storms are. Here is the view from my driveway as a storm was approaching. As you can see, it is still really sunny at the same time!
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. (:
