We had our first monsoon rain of the season last night - YAY! The temperature dropped by 20+ degrees and what a welcome relief it was. My neighbor's entry gate looks a bit ominous and gloomy with the thin gray clouds behind it.
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. (:
