Nature Photography: Rain in Tucson

Long-term weather forecasts were promising a winter with above-normal temperatures and below-normal rainfall.

Boy, were they wrong on that one. Our current cold snap is making the utility companies very happy. And, since late November, we’ve had almost 2.5″ of rain. So much for that dry spell we’d been having.

To document our unusual weather, I embarked on a trek to…

Although these prickly pear cactii have had an annoying habit of keeling over during heat waves, they’re standing tall right now. Let’s hope that the current rains help them grow bigger and stronger.
