Desert View - Day 101 - It's getting cold.....


5:49 am - Monday - February 19th - Grand Canyon - 35º F, 67% humidity, wind 22 mph.....OH YEAH......rocking the motorhome all night kind of wind, and still rocking the motorhome kind of wind as I write.  Pretty sure it got into the 40's a few times last night.....forecast high is also 35º F.....wait, what?  So we've already seen the high for today?

Sunday was day two of the 3 day President's Day weekend, and while it was not quite as busy as Saturday it was very least for those who worked after 12 pm......before 12 pm it was very unbusy and the result was a $97 cash drop for moi.  Initially it was windy, but the wind all but disappeared by 9 am only to return in force after 1 pm, and continued in force all afternoon, all evening and into the early morning hours and should continue until 5, or 6 pm Monday.

Thankfully it was not got up to 51º F, but not to worry, the cold is coming to accompany the wind.......

.......four of the next 5 days will see single digit lows with Tuesday getting down to ZERO, and there's the snow forecast for mid morning Monday, and then again on Friday......forecast right now is at 50% chance of snow on each day.  This is the first time we have seen a whole week with highs in the 30's.

My morning shift was quite tame, and I spent time reading a book the last two hours.  TLE was right there on time as always, and just as I was counting down my drawer it began to get busy.  TLE reports dropping close to $700.  I understand the Deli was so busy Saturday that they ran out of food by 4 pm, and had to close 40 minutes early.

Just after I finished my walk home it began to get windy, so there was not much to do outside.....I did manage to ride my stationary bike for 30 minutes, but otherwise I spent the afternoon inside.

TLE was home a little after 5:30, and we were eating dinner at 6 pm.  There wasn't much on Winter Olympics wise on TV that interested me, so I spent time watching 'Naked and Afraid'.

  1. Most of those highs are above freezing and it's late February, the weather at the Grand Canyon is not as bad as I thought!
    Stay warm!
