Wednesday March 18th 2020
It was mostly cloudy this morning, but that was the best it as going to be. The cloud cover steadily increased and the temperature dropped. Shortly after the noon hour the rain arrived. It started with a thunderstorm before before becoming a steady rain with lots of wind. There was no pretty sunset to take pictures of today.
I managed to get a little exercise before the rain began. I walked through my camping loop, then across the desert trail to one of the other loops and back again. It was cool enough that I needed my hoodie to stay warm in the breeze. The rest of the day was spent inside my RV home. The wind caused the slide out room toppers to rattle and the whole rig to shake. I had to keep the volume on the TV cranked. TV watching along with some cooking and some eating made up the remainder of the day.
The storm system is forecast to linger for another day. By tomorrow afternoon it may be back to partly cloudy, but I’m not holding my breath. I don’t think I’ll get another chance at a sunset picture until Friday or so. At least it is the six to ten inches of snow falling at the higher altitude near Flagstaff AZ.
