It rained all day on our first day in Phoenix - so much for the famous Arizona sunshine! It wasn't cold and it wasn't snow, so we didn't mind too much. This queen palm was growing just outside the door of our motel - I love queen palms.
We didn't do much today - rented a car and went out with a realtor at 5:00 and drove around a lot. It's interesting how the city is laid out in 1 mile grids - makes it not so difficult to get around. Our motel is actually in Peoria, which used to be a separate city but is now part of Phoenix.
