This year I've never been out of my jeans, wearing TWO shirts at all times. Instead of sandals or tennis shoes, I'm sporting my cowboy boots at every turn. It's just been downright COLD!!
Not too many days ago, I stood on the patio watching the rain turn to snow. While Jesus was installing my flooring, I also sat on the patio, but this time I was watching hail. The storms coming up from the Gulf of California hit the Santa Catalina Mountains here, dumping a lot of moisture before heading further East.
And then there was the SNOW! Thank goodness there wasn't any falling in my back yard this time, but it surely was up on the mountain side.
In no time, the entire range was covered with the white stuff. Lucky for me electricity and gas aren't that expensive in Arizona ... well at least compared to California! The puppies and I were warm and toasty in our long johns, jeans, two shirts and a sweatshirt!! I would wear fuzzy slippers, but I'm already getting shocked enough around the house without adding to the electricity in the air.
I was up rather early this morning ... 4:00 to be exact. A HUGE train came rumbling through my bedroom, out the door and down the hallway, before exiting the garage. I think there was only two engines on that one and they were working their little hearts out!! Once awake, I might as well get up or subject myself to what seems like hours of bad dreams.
Today we're planning a journey South to a quilt show in Sierra Vista. Thank goodness the Weather Gods have planned a nice week of mid 40 to mid 70 days. Please please, no more snow!!
More Facts: Out of all the U.S. States, Arizona has more land designated as Indian Land than anyone else and Billy the Kid killed his first man Windy Cahill, in Bonita Arizona (wherever that is ...). Which reminds me, it's about time to head South to Tombstone!!
