Sunset over Fortuna Pond
Happy New Year! No resolutions here; no sense disappointing myself with an epic fail! It’s been very cold at night…..but only here on the Pond! This morning the temp here was 26 degrees at 7 a.m. I checked the weather on line and it said it was 46 in Yuma! I don’t get it (and neither does anyone else here). Yuma is only 8 miles away, over flat land; no difference in elevation! Why on earth would it be 20 degrees colder here?! I want the 46! The guy next door said that he drove towards town last night and only one mile from here, the temp was 7 degrees higher.
I’m doing fine heating the camper part time with the cooktop and a small fan to move the heated air, though it only heats the upper half of the camper; since heat rises, nothing below the countertop level gets any heat at all. So I’ve forced Princess Roxie to sleep on the bed for the past few nights. She doesn’t like it, and neither do I, but at least it’s warmer up here than on the floor. I shut the heat off before I go to sleep, and light it up again if it’s gotten just too cold (below 50) in the night.
According to the averages, December has the coldest nighttime temperatures, so things should be warming up a bit soon. I hope so!
Ooooh, the coyotes are howling!
