No pics to click today, but tomorrow I'll put on my parka and see if I can find any.
It's been snowing for most of the day today, but not very hard so there's only two or three inches built up because the ground is still warm and the snow melts pretty fast. I have to apologize for no pictures today but because of the snow and the cold, I didn't get out and take any.
It's been another cold day today, I don't think it made it up to 40° by this afternoon, and tonight is supposed to be below freezing. It doesn't take much of this kind of weather to get me longing for some warm, desert air.
When I'm huddled in the Lance camper trying to stay warm, it's very easy for me to start thinking about places I want to go where it's warm. And I was thinking recently about Lake Havasu, Nevada, which is a great place to be in the winter. Even though the dictation software I use to write this blog will write various things when I say Lake Havasu such as... I have assumed, Leigh Sue, Lake has a Sue, and in every other conceivable way, it will spell it wrong without ever accidentally writing Lake Havasu. But that's okay because it's such a fantastic place to be, with great boondocking, that it's worth having to stop talking and correct "Lake have a Sue" the whole time I'm there.
And while I'm headed west on I-40, that would allow me to get some route 66 pictures on the way to "like have a Sue, " since a lot of the little towns on I-40 still have pieces of the original Route 66 going through town, so you can find very picturesque motels, restaurants, and the actual neon signs that dotted the "Mother road" original route.
All those locations would keep me in the northern part of Arizona, New Mexico, and the southern part of Nevada so I could easily make my way back to Gallup, New Mexico, for the Balloon Rally December 1.
Of course, I am still just guessing where I will go because many of my travels depend on the weather, what I feel like doing at the moment, and, nowadays, even the price of diesel fuel. But it's fun to think about while sitting here in this cold, snowy weather without a lot to do. It's mostly too cold for me to feel like driving around Denver, the grandkids are in school all day, and I've done everything I need to get done before I can leave. So the next interesting thing for me is to get some Halloween pictures of the grandkids, and then I'll be gone like a summer breeze.
