One of the peculiarities of places like Arizona is the snowbird. They start showing up in November, most arriving by Thanksgiving, then they are around until March or April, then they all go back to whatever godforsaken wasteland they came from. All because they don't like the winter weather back home. Meanwhile, the local stores are crowded, as are the restaurants and the traffic goes from bad to unbearable. You see, I am a year around resident of Tucson, Arizona. I love it here in the summer because the snowbirds are gone and the college kids are gone and it's not a bad place to live when everyone is gone.
Alas, we're just getting started. The snowbirds are flocking in like columns of geese. It happens every year and every year I complain about it.
