In the back of my mind I did wonder why the sunset was so gorgeous on this evening. I vaguely remember something from high school about the clouds being full of water.
I probably should have paid a little more attention. Yesterday's morning temperatures of 36 were doable, but I was cold all day. I just couldn't seem to get warm in spite of my rig heater setting of 67 degrees. Reason being, it never got above 46. I know I keep saying this, but doesn't everyone escape to the WARM desert in winter?? This is like escaping to my back yard!!
Around 10:00 am the rain began, followed by hail and an oppressive cloud cover that felt like it was 50 feet over our heads. Except for a quick run to the grocery store, Patty and I stayed hunkered down all day, with me cuddling by the puppies for warmth.
Last night, I stuffed pillows in every window and vent opening I could, pulled down every sunscreen shade and regular shade in my motorhome, turned the electric blanket (thank GOODNESS for the electric blanket) on high and the thermostat to 65. An hour later I was toasty warm and asleep!!
It was then that I received the screeching alert on my phone for a hard freeze ... right here in the sunbelt .... with temperatures expected in the mid 20's tonight. I'm hoping my tank of propane holds out for another week and I'm praying the temperatures get back to normal. I'd like to blame this one on Nick Russell, but gosh darn it, he's too far East, almost to Florida (look out Florida!!).
My thoughts of Tombstone and Bisbee are waning with the weather!! Today I'm going to drive around in my Jeep (with the heater on high) and check out a few more properties, but am only interested in ones with HUGE fireplaces and central HEAT!!!
