Currently there is a wildfire blazing in the Catalina Mountains. The Finger Rock Fire has burned 150 acres so far but forest rangers say no structures are in danger. They are hoping that rain in the next day or so will put this fire out.
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. (:
