Roses are red, violets are blue, the holidays over, thank goodness it's through.
A sunset without clouds just isn't the same. But you gotta work with what you got.
My New Year's party last night was epic, and the damage was biblical. There were earthquakes reported east of the Mississippi, and a tsunami hit the Oregon coast. The federal government has declared the entire party top-secret because of the high ranking government officials involved, and all evidence and references to the event are erased from the public record, and plausible deniability is afforded all participants... So I guess you could say the party that never happened was a complete success.
Stepping back a few days. Coming to Tucson from Ajo, I was surprised at the amount of traffic on I-10 in both directions. I didn't think there was anything special about the day before, the day before, New Year's eve, but apparently, there was. The traffic wasn't as horrendous as the day before Thanksgiving going from Phoenix to Quartzsite, but it was still heavy enough to require my constant attention, even though I–10 from just past the I–8, I–10 junction to Tucson is a six Lane Highway.
Yesterday I went to Walmart at about 1 p.m. and was surprised to find a line of about 50 people waiting to get into the store. Apparently, Walmart was having its customer capacity limited, so it was one person leaves, one person goes in. I'm not big on standing in long lines to give a store my money, so as soon as I saw the line, I turned around and walked back to my truck.
I returned to Walmart this morning about 9 o'clock figuring that most folks would still be asleep, or to hung over to go to the store... And I was right. There was hardly anyone there so I got my shopping done quickly and easily.
The weather in Tucson is mostly just like Ajo except for a tiny bit cooler because Tucson is slightly higher. But basically, it's sunny and warm in the daytime and chilly at night. It's pretty much the way the desert is most of the time except in the summer when it's blazing hot in the daytime and chilly at night.
The campground here at the Pima County Fairgrounds is doing their social distancing, skip a space, campsite assignments, so it's hard for me to tell how full the campground is, but just guessing, I would say it has about three-quarters of the amount of social distanced people it can hold. I haven't had to share the 5 acres of boondocking area with anyone yet, so I guess the "Covid 19 Patient Isolation Area" sign hung on the Arctic Fox is working.
I took this picture of the full moon the other night to show how cratered the surface of the moon is. If you look at the moons horizon you can see some of the craters. I looked it up on the Internet and some of the moons craters are about 3 miles deep.
There's a dry wash in those trees right in front of the Arctic Fox. I moved a little closer to the dry wash because I heard some Coyotes and Javelina running around in the dry wash, so I thought I might get a picture of them if I was closer.
