I think I mentioned that today would be a quiet day and it was. Well except for later in the day when the wind picked up followed by some heavy rain. Here inside the Stinger "B" it was warm and cozy. I ended up making a pumpkin pie, well it is Thanksgiving no turkey but we do have pie, with a Keto recipe I have. I put it in regular pie crust for Tom and that was a waste. Neither one of us is eating the pie crust. Note to self in the future make it crustless. Tom ran into town to get ice. Fingers crossed we get some good news on Monday or we may need to invest in another good cooler, two of the ones we have are not for long term cooling just for taking on a day trip or picking up groceries.
|As the morning progressed the clouds started |
to disperse and we saw blue sky.
|Then around noon we could see the storm coming our way|
from the south and the wind kicked up some what.
|Yet looking towards the north there was blue sky and sun.|
|Plus, the sun was still shining over us.|
|Then we experienced sun showers and rainbows.|
This one appeared around 12:30.
|To the north the dark shadows in the mountains are beautiful.|
|The mountains to the east have disappeared into the storm.|
|Looking towards Dome Rock in the distance sunshine.|
|This rainbow appeared around 2:30 and|
|then about 10 minutes later I could faintly see|
as short second one above it.
|The one above faded and then this one appeared|
a little after 3:00.
|The mountains to the east are starting to reappear.|
|Looking to the west|
|Big fluffy clouds on the horizon looking south.|
By now the wind had really picked up and I took this
through our small kitchen window . I was surprised
to find I had actually gotten a picture.
|Looking South out the front window.|
Just a hint of pink touching the tops of the clouds.
Not long after the last picture the wind seemed to shift or just really picked up and we were rocking. We already had all our slides in so Tom started up the Stinger "B" and aimed her nose into the wind. Just after total darkness the rain started and it came down hard. It was still raining when we went to bed but not as hard. I woke up once during the night and could still here it coming down. Tom went out once to move the car to the other side of the motorhome and he said in the car lights he could see the wash was filled and moving.

We awoke this morning to sunny skies and some wind but nothing like last night. The desert is again dry around us. When we drove in to Quartzsite the road was dry but we could see the washes filled on either side of the road. There was a sign up at Kuehn Street stating the road was closed. So there must have been water across at the wash just past the vendors.
|I did not venture outside today until we were taking off|
to run into Quartzsite. We wanted to pick up water and
needed a couple of groceries.
Looking out towards the south
|north and west|
|then towards the east.|
Beautiful sunny sky but with the wind it was chilly out.
|Just liked the clouds|
|late this afternoon|
|and the shadows they created in the mountains.|
|The sun going down|
|and some like pink color in the clouds|
|as the last of today's light fades into darkness.|
Side note: Like always parked out here we have been hearing coyotes at night. It sounds like there are more of them and that they are venturing closer in.
We are glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
