Back To The Future, Part Duex

I'm happy to report that Fred and Lamont made it out of that concrete jungle known as Oro Valley.

Meanwhile, back in July of 2012, we were hunkered down at the hotel watching the second monsoon storm roll into town.   This was the view from the front of the resort.

And because I like that wall cloud so much, here's another shot, at closer range.

You would have thought that we were in Hawaii from looking at this shot overlooking the pool area.  

We hung out on this terrace for quite some time, watching the rain continue to pound down. The small child was unsure of being exposed to the thunder and lightning, but that's how we roll, living on the edge.

This is from the second evening of our stay, with the storm clouds passing at sunset.

Stay tuned, I have day three of this trip coming soon.   Yes, I'm milking this for all it's worth.  I no longer own a camera of my own, and I lost the USB cable to my phone.

Back To The Future

I've managed to only be living seven months in the past now, good for me. 

Here are some pictures from our trip to Tucson last July, during the monsoon season.  As we were driving south, we came across this angry little cloud.

This seemed like a good time to stop at McDonalds to ride the storm out, which we did, and then managed to catch up to it again as we drove to the resort.   Thankfully I had replaced our windshield wipers before we left, so we muddled through the storm just fine, and I'm living proof as I sit and breathe.

There have been no new Brenna pictures on the old blog in 2013 save for the waffle shot back in January, so here are a few more.  Nevermind she was five in these, but close enough.   Here she is inspecting one of the chairs on our back porch at the resort.

And here she is, short hair and all, showing off her McDonalds prize from earlier.  I think this is supposed to be that Manny guy from the Ice Age movies.  He's now in a box somewhere taking up space in a closet in our house.

This was the view from our room, after the storm had passed, and before the next one came through (stay tuned for part duex of this post for those pictures).

And finally, and probably most importantly, will Fred and Lamont manage to find their way out of the gritty suburban deathtrap that they unknowlingly stumbled into, looking for parts for their pickup?   Stay tuned, for only the shadow knows.
