Thursday, February 29, 2024 - City of Rocks State Park, Faywood, NM, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 4,192.1 Miles for the trip

Welcome to the day that only happens ever 4 years!

We did get some rain - large drops for about 5 minutes around 6:00PM last night. The wind also picked up enough to rock the trailer on the gusts every 10 minutes or so. It cooled off fast; at 6:00 it was down to 50°F. The rain came back, light & heavy until a little after midnight. The temperature kept dropping, down to 34°F by 11:30. I was waiting for the pitter patter of the raindrops to turn to snow. My radar app showed snow falling on three sides of us, but none here. Luckily, there was no usual morning drop of temperature. It was 38°F when I went for my morning walk, 47°F at 11:30AM, and a high for the day of 53°F. Little sun until late in the day, the batteries at 87% at 11:30, and 94% by 5:00.

Another do nothing day. I spent most of it reading in the trailer.

Dinner was a Saffron Road Chicken Tikka Masala bowl.

Until Tomorrow -
