It seems as though we are having an unusually long monsoon season this year. I can remember summers when we were hit hard with storms in July and then... poof... they were over. In the last week we have had a lot of stormy weather. I think the skies are just beautiful during this season. These clouds swirling behind the cypress look smokey and mysterious, don't you think?
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. (:
