It seems I may not have missed the Spring in Tucson after all. Things here are blooming and though the colors are subtle as compared to all the tulips and blossoming trees in Utah this time of year, it's nice to see the desert in bloom.
Also, it seems housing here may be picking up. When I first came here last fall, the subdivision a bit south of ours had a sign that said "Only 11 left". This is a different builder with houses and lots smaller than ours. With the real estate downturn, I wondered how long it would take for the number on the sign to be reduced. While walking this week, I saw 3 houses in that subdivision under construction and was pleasantly surprised that they had revised the sign to say "Only 2 left". See photo below.
However, they also revised the prices - lower of course. Maybe things are picking up in the Tucson real estate market, which would be a good sign for the economy.
