|It happens every year and I hate the thought of it. Our stay down south is nearing it’s end. We have eight days to the end of February or just one month to our departure. But then I comfort myself with the fact that the day temps will have risen to pretty much unbearable levels. I really don’t like to be in a sweat lodge all day, and that’s what it will be when temps are crawling towards 90F.|
This winter has been on the cool side though and who knows, it might even stay that way. Right now we have quite a storm rushing in from the north-west.
That little rain last night hardly left any puddles around and the rest of the humidity will be gone with the wind by tonight.
That’s life in the desert!
Had me a dip in the hot pool today. A guy was sitting beside me and chatting along with another guy in the other pool. He was rambling on about the American wars for Independence and let me tell you his stories let your imagination run wild.
But as he was rambling on it became too much for me and I had to get out of there. This guy was a history book!
We are mostly spending the day inside the rig. The sun is on and off but the wind is soooo cold that nobody is staying outside. Molly is sleeping on the couch (where else eh?) and I can’t wait to have lunch.
We have had problems with our BEAMSPEED Internet connection today. making a call via SKYPE was all but impossible. After I ran a speed test the ping was down to the sixties and download often under 1mbs while upload was mostly between 0.1-0.2mbs. That is not enough capacity to use SKYPE. Now we are wondering whether the service provider has problems with his allocated bandwidth (too many users out there) or whether we should blame the high wind speeds. To compare we turned on our Verizon MIFI and the speeds were showing over 2mbs download and about 0.6mbs upload – a huge difference. So in the future we will just turn on the MIFI for the day when we want to make phone calls. And I’ll have to talk to the BEAMSPEED guys.
Remember I was wondering about those rock piles long I-8 in the San Diego Mountains? Well a reader send me this explanation: (quite astounding)
The big boulders ...
And now I need to whip up some lunch. Hmm… let’s see what we got….
Thanks for hanging in here!
