Currently in Flagstaff AZ (Low 42 Partly Cloudy High 61) 

It has been a long time since we last blogged. The constant heat in the valley of the sun was oppressing. There were some evenings we were watching the weather at 9:30 p.m. and it was 105 degrees at that time. For the third time we were able to escape the heat, this time we went to back to Flagstaff. 

We were surprised to see the trees already changing colors. In the valley even though the calendar says fall the temperatures say summer.

It is nice that at night we have had to run the heat and the fireplace sure has made the evenings watching television and the cold mornings cozy.

We will be able to blog on some of our activities here later, sure is nice to be able to head out when we want instead of having to worry about it being too hot.

We close with one more for our weather bug followers, a cold air tornado was spotted near Goodyear where we stay and we took this photo from the weather broadcast. A cold air tornado is usually short-lived and generally much weaker than the vortices produced by a warm air tornadoes and rarely make ground contact. We had never heard of the previously mentioned gustnado and now a cold air tornado before our stay in the valley of the sun.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. You guys are learning way too many new weather words. It's been windy rainy and cold. Not sure which is worse. How come I can't find that Utopia of weather that I'm looking for?

  2. Cold air tornado is a new one on us too. Very strange. Glad they don't last long.
