It's been really hot today, it got up to 94° before some clouds came in and cooled it off a little. the weather forecast looks like it's going to be the same or worse next week with tomorrow close to 100°. It looks like I have stayed too long in the flatlands.
The sun starts to set as the storm is forming
On the other hand the temperatures in the mountains where I'm planning on being late next week is going to be in the 70s. It's only about 60 miles away from where I'm at now but it's about 4000 feet higher and that makes all the difference in the world.
I went to Walmart this morning and got a few things I needed plus a few things that I wanted to stock up on before I get too far from a big Walmart. The Walmart's in the mountains are few and far between and usually kind of small. And in the small mountain towns without much competition the grocery stores are kind of expensive.
The storm moves out over the plains
Late yesterday afternoon there was a big rainstorm that blew through the campground. I would say that it was the heaviest rain that the Arctic Fox has ever been in. It was one of those rainstorms where the wind was blowing so hard the rain was coming straight at you. It was hitting the slideout side of the Arctic Fox which would probably be the most leak prone side of the trailer. Fortunately it only lasted 10 or 15 minutes and I didn't find any leaks in the Arctic Fox when it was all over.
