Four years ago today, October 3, 2009, Bill and I arrived in Sierra Vista, Arizona. So much has changed in the four years, but not my desire to be back where it is green and lush and where my granddaughters live. I’m content in the moment, but not complacent. There have been good times here and we’ve made some good friends, but I’ve missed so much by not being there. Too much. And so the work continues in the quest to move back east. Arizona, you are a great place to visit, but I’ve visited long enough and it is time for me to go home!

On Monday I posted a rainbow picture and then said I hoped to get out of town to find more photo opportunities later in the day. Well, I didn’t get out of town, but I did get to the edge of town in the afternoon in order to get a clear shot of this lovely rainbow:
At dusk, on the way back from picking Bill up at work, I pulled over and took this “sunset” picture:
Those clouds should have been a warning, as we woke up Tuesday morning to snow and ice everywhere! Not enough to shut things down here, although there were several accidents due to icy streets/roads. The eastern portion of Cochise County was pretty much shut down with several inches of snow and wind-driven snow drifts, along with some icy roads. Thankfully the sun was shining and things melted off fairly quickly. And no, I didn’t go out and take any pictures of the snow. The wind was blowing and it was COLD!
