Tucson residents know that we have more than just the official Rillito River - but it all depends on the time of year! Here, for instance, is the seasonal Catalina River which is aptly named by the residents living near the intersection of Catalina & Elmwood. The water had enough oomph to wash away a giant garbage can. But at the same time this was happening, my neighborhood (further east and south) had just a slight five-minute sprinkle.

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. (:
