Scottsdale winter wonderland
Today I decided to leave my world and enter into a neighboring world called Scottsdale. It is filled with tourists escaping the weather, and every kind of upscale eatery and shop you could ever imagine.
Once a year I like to visit the Scottsdale Fashion Mall, filled with high end stores like Barneys of New York and Neiman Marcus. I walked each of the three stories from stem to stern. Window shopped, and just enjoyed all the changed they have made during a huge remodel which even moved the Harkins Theatre to a new location. It was fun.
After a fairly dreary couple of weeks we are finally getting the outstanding warm sunny days that make this a destination, even as the nation braces for a winter storm. Oddly, when the Phoenix Open arrives soon, we have lately had replases of bad windy rainy days, and this year I hope we present a post card to the world the way Hawaii and Palm Springs are doing.
That is all, we can always talk about the weather.
