Wind


Wind

Every April the winds shift in Tucson- signaling the start of our 6 months of summer. We have been fortunate this year to have had record rainfall and a very cool winter. The winds are exhilarating, but they also bring with them the knowledge that Tucson will soon become a gigantic frying pan.
Most of us "desert rats" spend this time of year frantically planning our escape from the summer sun. Meanwhile, we spend every possible second that we can outdoors, knowing full well that we will be holed up in swamp cooled, air conditioned darkened houses until late October.
It's basically the opposite schedule compared to most of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere. (except instead of skiing, we go swimming)
The winds of change are upon us....and soon we will have our Ice break (the first time the temperature gets to 100 degrees)
Just a warning to you Northern folks...you may have some leathery lizards begging for a respite from the desert sun. Any old shadow will do
:-)
