Ominous clouds rolled in off the mountains from the West.
I went to the Walmart in Parker and it was even more crowded than it was last week. I guess that makes sense because there's a lot more people in town than there was last week. But it's getting to the point where I'm starting to dread going because of the crowds.
Before I went to Walmart I went to the Safeway across the highway from Walmart and it wasn't as bad as Walmart but it was still pretty crowded. They have a couple of things I like that I can't find in Walmart but the Safeway prices are so high it prevents me from buying all my groceries there.
The weather cleared up, it was sunny and warm today. All the puddles dried up rather quickly, it was fun seeing actual water on the ground again. And it rained enough that it probably cleaned off my solar panels which I'm sure they needed.
There was some evidence that the dry washes that run across highway 95 on the way to Parker had been running over the road yesterday. Not bad enough to leave dirt and rocks in the road but you could see it had been wet.
I believe the Big Show will be starting Saturday so I need to be hightailing it out of town. Tomorrow I need to go to the dump to get rid of some trash, stop by the hardware store for some bits and pieces for my rearview camera project, and fill up a propane tank. And Friday I'm planning on leaving.
I'm not 100% sure where I'm going yet but I'm most likely going to head down south to Yuma. It's a couple degrees warmer down there, there's more shopping, and maybe the warmer weather will put me back in the mood to finish my rearview camera project.
More clouds rolled in off the mountains from the East appearing to box us in with nowhere to go.
Soon we were enveloped in thick fog, the heaviest fog I had been in since I camped on the beach In Padre island Texas....Strange days in Quartzsite, strange days indeed.
