The huge green dumpster you see in the top photo is a dumpster quite out of place! It SHOULD be located in the concrete niche you see in the middle photo. Tucson's monsoon season has officially started and last night the rain and wind was so intense that the dumpster was WASHED OUT of its cement bunker and traveled many feet south to land in the wash behind my office. What a mess it all was - muddy and slick parking lot, debris everywhere, and some flooded offices, too. Hello, Rain!
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. (:
