I whine about the weather nonstop from May-October (when it's 95 or hotter). But, this time of year, it's pretty awesome.
  1. It's 72 today.

  2. But about 30 minutes from my house is Mt. Lemmon.

  3. And as you drive up the mountain, which takes about half an hour, the cacti are gradually replaced by pine trees. And the snow deepens.
