Spring has sprung in the Sonoran Desert and it is lovely.

I was out and about today and decided it was too warm to go with the the windows down, so we switched to the Arizona default of constant air conditioning. Most folks in the area use air conditioning year round, but I like the fresh air when I can get it.

Today it was a little to warm for that approach.

One of the things I really love about living in the desert, especially at this time of year, is the warm breezes that blow at night. I enjoy sitting out on our patio well after dark, looking at a moonless sky and enjoying the warm breeze.

Yes, it’s a dry heat. And I love it.

I’m a month away from my storm chasing trip and I’m ramping up my meteorological studies so I can be in the right place at the right time more often this year. Last year I witnessed several awesome thunderstorms, some impressive straight line winds, and one F1 tornado in the very northeast corner of Colorado. I don’t know where the storms will take me this year, and as far as I’m concerned, anything is game, but I am really looking forward to the adventure.
