My flowers aren't sure what to expect from day to day in the month of May. One day it can be 70 with gusty winds, and the next it could be 92 with blazing sunshine and no wind at all. They can all agree on one thing this time of year, the weather is unpredictable, but the nights are gorgeous. Temps drop, the air is clear and their is usually a nice little breeze so you can keep the windows opened. After living in AZ since 1972, I think I've earned the right to call myself a "native" even though I was born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We get excited when their are clouds, rain, storms, etc... we LOVE weather change. The reason? We don't see it very often. 300 days of the year are almost certain to be clear blue skies and sunshine... You might not believe this, but after awhile, you start wanting the weatherman to say something different. I'm not complaining...just sayin'.
This is our bragging time of year, but its quickly coming to a close. A month from now I could be writing something very different. Our snowbirds are already starting to pack up and leave. Chickens! (Just kidding)...we love our snowbirds. They are a great boost for our economy. Well, I can't believe I made this entire post about the weather...I've never done that before, but I suppose that's what a blog is about...random thoughts that flit through my head at 12:50am. God does all things well, and He didn't make any mistakes when he created Arizona, and the desert and the weather. Like I said, I'm not complaining. I'm grateful for the sunshine, the clear blue skies and the cool breeze when it passes through. It's like a gentle kiss from a lover, or a sweet hug from a long ago friend.
