7:42 am - Monday - December 12th - GNHS -45° F, 63% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the southeast....heavy cloud cover today with a forecast high of 59° F. On this date in 2021 TLE and I were watching the sun rise over the Anza Borrego Desert at our boondock site......↴
Just after midnight Sunday morning the wind coming out of the southeast freshened into the mid teens, and was still blowing in the mid teens when we awoke later Sunday morning. Even though it was forecast to be in the mid 60's Sunday the wind chill from that southeast wind made the 'lido deck' rather inhospitable, so we pretty much remained inside all day Sunday. Near the end of the daylight portion of Sunday the wind began to abate, but then we got rain.....unexpected rain. It just does not rain during the winter here, but this is the second time we have gotten rain. The gentle rain continued for about an hour, so there was no evening fire, or games enjoyed on the 'lido deck' that evening.
