Remember that rare desert snowstorm I wrote about last week, where I posted a couple of shots of snow on the saguaro cactus? Well, because the snow here became a nationwide news story, I decided, on a whim, to submit that red rock photo to the weather page of USA Today.  Well, this morning, as I was having my breakfast, I got to the weather page, and there was my photo, in color, with my name and everything! I just about spit out my eggs.
