This year Tucson was a challenge.  It took Brenda two days to get to Tucson after the Madison airport closed due to the cold.  Then we had rain 2 days in Tucson – a bit unusual, but it made the desert more beautiful and greener than I have ever seen it in February.  We shopped till we dropped.  As a result, we shipped 1,425 pounds of stones, and that didn’t count what we carried home in our carry-on luggage.  It’s a good thing they don’t weigh back packs!
