Sheltering in place.....

 7:56 am  - Sunday - March 24th - GNHS - 57° F, humidity 57%, wind 7 mph out of the west by southwest......clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 70° F.  On this date in 2012 I was standing in front of Tiger Stadium (LSU) in Baton Rouge, LA......

Saturday was the second day under the 'shelter in place' orders by Nurse TLE. It was also the first day of the round of 32 in the 2024 version of the NCAA 'March Madness' basketball tournament, and another day of guiltless viewing of said tournament by moi.  Guiltless, you say?  Yup.....another day of no walking, and very, very little standing, so yeah, guiltless viewing from the comfortable confines of my!

Speaking of 'March Madness' there was only one minor upset in Saturday's round of 32 matchups, and that was Gonzaga - #5 over Kansas - #4, otherwise all of the other favored teams won their games, and in some cases quite handily.  While the Gonzaga/Kansas game was just a one point game at half time, and very close in the early part of the 2nd half, Gonzaga pulled away to win 89-68, and at one point led by as many as 25 points in the later stages of the 2nd half before settling for a 19 point win as time expired.  There were a couple of overtime games, including one double overtime game in which both favorites ultimately prevailed.

I really did not venture outside for the first time until late afternoon when the winds began to freshen.  The forecast was for winds into the low 30's most of the afternoon, but they never materialized.  It got to maybe 15-16 mph for a while, but it was hardly noticeable coming out of the west by southwest as it was.  The wind direction has begun its annual shift from out of the north by northwest to out of the west by southwest now, and for that we are grateful as the southwest winds do not impact our site like the north by northwest winds do. 

The forecast through April 6th, our departure date, shows only two days in the low 80's, otherwise they are all in the 70's with on day in the 60's, so we've got that going for us.  Things have been pretty quiet here at GNHS with only single rentals Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, which also is a sign that the end of the season is upon us.  Next week, however, we have Spring Break occurring and we have advanced bookings for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday so far, with more expected Easter weekend, but our days of being RZR rental agents here at GNHS are becoming quite finite.

Thanks for stopping by!
