On February 4th, Tucson had some of the lowest temperatures on record, even down to single digits in the evening, lasting over three nights. According to reports, these temperatures and their length were the coldest temperatures on record in 101 years. Now there is a record, if I have ever heard one!!
These very cold temperatures were so severe that pipes ruptured, fountains froze, crops died and sensitive vegatation like my cacti came to be casualites. Here are some photos which I took today in my yard.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
