This weekend, I opened my front door and saw snow. That’s right, SNOW, right here in Tucson, Arizona. And not just ordinary snow.
- snow in the desert
- snow next to tall saguaro cacti
- big, flat snowflakes. They were about 1 to 2 inches in diameter and looked like little flying saucers
- snow on 9,000-foot tall mountains
- an icy-cold stream flowing down from those mountains, and I waded through it!
Here, have a look:
Saguaro National Park:
Catalina State Park:
Happy snowy saguaro Sunday!
How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve?
They’re predicting snow and ice tonight, so I’m staying home with my Trader Joe’s frozen hors d’oeuvres, bottle of wine, and internet streaming. And just in case you’re doing likewise, here’s a suggestion:
Log onto YouTube and watch my latest attempt at video stardom, Desert Spiny Lizard Blues. It features a song I wrote about a lizard who uses acronyms. (You may remember it from my previous post, A Lizard’s Tale.) Given enough champagne, I’m predicting you’ll enjoy it even more than watching the ball drop.
If you DO enjoy it, please feel free to give it a thumbs up, and share it with your friends! Once again, here’s the link:

Wishing everyone a happy, peaceful, joyous, adventurous, and successful 2019.
