Friday, January 6, 2017, Imperial Dam, CA, Day 7, 0 Miles, 3,923.7 Miles For the Trip

Before going to bed I closed the front window cover. The local Yuma NPR station (which I complained about last year, but is working well both here and at Quartzsite , which receives the Parker transmitter) stated 25MPH wind gusts for Yuma & 30MPH for Parker. We had light clouds over night, but enough wind to rock the trailer.

By the way, there is now a Quartzsite & Imperial Dam Classical station, 105.9. A strange station started in November that plays a continuous stream of so so quality classical music. Every 15 - 20 minutes, a voice breaks in saying about three words, then back to the music. Weird!

I did go for a short walk this morning, but called it quits because of the wind. The canceled both the Aerobics & Yoga exercise classes this morning as well.

I spent most of the day in the trailer, reading & updating some of the blog links on my website. I did take a break when the wind died down a bit during the afternoon to carry a bag of garbage to the dumpsters.

It is still too windy to cook outside, so dinner will be a couple of BLT sandwiches. Makes sense since I cooked extra yesterday since the bacon is getting on towards the use by date..

Until Tomorrow -
