A Summer Of Fire   Leave a comment

Yesterday’s Sunset from Off Our Patio — Image by kenne

Some of the wildfires in the west began with the Bighorn Fire here in the Santa Catalina Mountains back in June.
Since then fires have continued to ravage the west. Sadly, all the climate models have projected data
predicting the conditions for a perfect storm.

Meanwhile, there are currently five storms in the Atlantic. It’s time to
stop climate-denial or conspiracy thinking and believe in science. 
Pease, let’s not let politics win out over science.

Five years ago we moved to Tucson, Arizona from The Woodlands, Texas (located north of Houston). Then as now, our friends and family couldn’t believe we were leaving our home of over 25 years. There is still plenty of discussion as to whether it was a good move or not.

As a visitor to the site, you know my images reflect my appreciation for Arizona’s beauty. But, what about the heat, “it’s hot in the summer time,” you say. Yes, the temps are high, averaging 101 degrees for a high in July.

As most people know, dry heat is more comfortable than humid heat. Example: Yesterday it was 99 degrees in Tucson, but felt like 93 degrees. Houston had a high of 93 degrees, but it felt like 99 degrees. Additionally, in Tucson if it’s too hot to spend much time outside, in a 45 minute drive we can be on Mt. Lemmon where yesterday’s high was 69 degrees.

Let’s face it, since I think in art I’m just trying to confirm my existence — my existential moment.
