Last Friday, before the rainy weather arrived I took a drive around the foothills of South Mountain on the southern edge of Phoenix. At one point I had this nice view of the downtown skyline through the haze and, I suspect, a fair amount of air pollution. It was a very hot day and when I zoomed in on this photo I could see a bit of that wavy heat distortion too.
See that small white tiered building just left of the center of this photo? At one time in our history, that was one of the tallest buildings in downtown Phoenix.
By the way, no more rain on Wednesday after all and now the temperatures are creeping back up into the triple digits. It was nice while it lasted.
