Husband, dog and I arrived safely back in my hometown Saturday, after experiencing:

a freeway closed because of dust storms

lots of rain,

two roads closed because of damaged bridges, and

many, very long construction zones.

MR. TOAD’S WILD RIDE OF WEATHER

Yesterday (Saturday 11/26/16) the high was 69 degrees in our winter home of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Next Saturday (when I’m signed up for the outdoor Christmas on Main in Benson, Arizona), the projection is 44 degrees (!) and rain. Near as I can figure out, there’s neither a market for wet books nor an enticement to Arizona customers at that temperature even without rain.

What’s Happening??

As we ate lunch today, the rain and wind gusts started. It looked as if it were raining leaves. Next the hail started, kept up for a while, quit then started again. Finally the power went out. Eight hours later it’s still out.
