Jeepers creepers.......

7:28 am - Saturday - February 29th - Borrego Springs, CA - 60° F, 22% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the west by northwest.....partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 80° F.  The view this morning.......↴

My daughter Kate, and her daughter Jolene this morning

Friday, or 5th Saturday as I am want to call it, began with heavy overcast, so I deployed our Honda 2000i generator to assist the solar panels in forwarding electrons to our house batteries.  The forecast winds never materialized....in fact it was one of the calmer days we have experienced here in the Anza Borrego Desert this month.

After doing a few chores around our campsite I settled into my anti gravity chair on the 'lido deck' to do some reading, and that is how our day went with the brief exception of making a quick run into the grocery store to pick up a few snacks in anticipation of the arrival of Nick, Kate, Charlise, and Jolene that evening.  We were gone for less than 30 minutes before resuming our positions on the 'lido deck'.

All day long we saw a continuous parade of Jeeps being driven, and Jeeps being hauled on trailers passing by us on S-22.....if I was forced to hazard a guess I would say a thousand Jeeps passed by our site Friday.

We were unsure about the arrival time of our kids as Friday traffic can be, and usually is terrible in SoCal.  Add on top of that the fact that there is a large Jeep rally taking place in Ocotillo Wells this weekend.  Our kids had planned to be on the road by 2:30 pm, but did not actually leave until 3:20 pm.  They hit a lot of the aforementioned Jeep rally traffic and finally arrived just before 7:30 pm.....4 hours to drive 120 miles.....crazy!

The skies actually cleared for a few hours, but by sunset they had returned with a vengeance, which precluded any sort of a meaningful sunset.....this was the best could do about 6 pm.....



.....as I said the kids arrived just before 7:30 pm, and after 20-30 minutes of setting up their trailer for the weekend, we sat by the fire talking, laughing, and enjoying the unusually warm evening until almost 11 pm.....that's the latest I've gone to bed in a long time.....lol.
