One thought on “A new year on the Tonto”

  1. OMG! Frozen “snowbirds” scattered all over the landscape, wearing nothing but their shorts and flip-flops, carrying golf clubs, with their Senior Citizen discount coupons clenched in their fists. “April showers bring Spring flowers”, but in this case it’s late December/early January snow showers: just wait for the spectacular Spring bloom in the desert! And then, lots of grass for fire season. The cycle of Nature is wonderful.
