My traveling continued from Chicago to warm, sunny Arizona. Did I say warm? My mistake! It was barely 60 degrees for the three days I was there. Normally this time of year it is around 75 and totally awesome, and about three weeks ago it was a whopping 95 degrees, but no, not this week, not for ol' Sal. Oh well, coming from Connecticut and just barely making it on a flight out of Chicago missing a snowstorm by about an hour- 60 degrees and sunny worked for me. It made me giggle watching the born and bred Arizonians bundle up in winter coats, scarfs and mittens- especially when I spoke with my parents in CT and heard about the six inches of snow we were currently getting there.
Despite the bitter cold, I pushed on in AZ. My Aunt and Uncle and my cousins, Jason and Stacey, showed me a great time complete with touring Scottsdale, checking out U of A in Tucson and a Phoenix Suns Basketball game!
Now I'm back east for the weekend, preparing for my next trip. I board the plane tomorrow night..more to come!
