2020 in Arizona has all the key attributes of a major motion picture.
Pandemic, floods, fire, dust storms, record high temperatures, local riots... What next? Oh, wait, that would be Monsoon!
Yesterday we watched as the Ocotillo fire spread across the Cave Creek foothills. Too close for comfort, less than a mile from our house. We were part of a forced evacuation. Sheltering in place is one thing, sheltering somewhere else is overwhelming.
What would you take with you if you had less that 30 minutes to get packed and get out?
