If your reading list includes snow birds or others currently traveling in Arizona, you already know that it was a snowy day in Tucson.
Yesterday, the temps were in the upper 60s as I hiked in Saguaro East NP. Today as the snow was falling, the temperature was 35 degrees outside. Spent most of the day inside where I am paying to stay warm.
When I crawled out of bed this morning, it was 50 degrees -- outside. It was another of those cold days in Tucson. Been way too many of those. With the frequent wear of long pants, it was time to put that pair in the "to be laundered pile" and get out the other pair.
Not to worry. Still wearing a Hawaiian shirt under another warming layer.
This winter has been colder than usual. In past years there was the occasional 70 degree day. There haven't been many these past months. More 50s and 60s are predicted for the next ten days. Just a prediction. That could change.
50s and 60s is good hiking weather. Snow is not good hiking -- unless I am on snowshoes. The snow shoes are in the basement of Wandrin Wagon. However, that is where they will stay. No plans to go snow shoeing.
Keeping balance requires bad and good. If every day was perfect weather, there would be no balance. Wouldn't recognize the good. SOOOO. It was a great day!
