'Twas The Day After Christmas...

Looking west at sunset: Mike in Tucson, mortgage lender

~ The Day After Christmas, 2010 ~

Looking west from Tucson Mountain Park

Looking west at the glow of the setting sun, I couldn't help but admire the yellows and oranges painting our Tucson skies.  This is a magical time of day in Tucson.  While the east coast is hunkering down under blizzard conditions, with more than 1,500 flights cancelled today, it was 60 degrees as the sun faded into the west.

Then I turned toward the south, and instead of orange and yellow, the southern sky was painted deep rose.  I knew you'd need a break from the snow.  Here it is.

Mike that picture is drop dead gorgeous!  My parents are visiting from Mesa but we had a cold snap on Chistmas day and they have not enjoyed that.

Careful what you tell folks, Mike.  I don't know what's going to happen down there, but here it's looking pretty chilly for New Years!
