I went into Cottonwood this morning and looked around. It's a nice little town that has about everything you need but not so big that its hard to drive around in.
I stopped at a Fry's grocery store and got some groceries, even though there was a Walmart right down the street. Walmarts always have pretty much the same things for sale so I figured that Fry's would give me something different to try.
I found a Mexican restaurant in town so I might just go there to celebrate my two-year full timing anniversary. It looked like a big nice place, which is kind of odd for a Mexican restaurant since a lot of them seem to be small family run establishments, and those kind seem to have the best food.
The temperatures have been getting up to the mid-80s the last two days, and I know that sounds hot but it's actually not. Right now the temperature in the Arctic Fox is 80 degrees and I have two vent fans running, a couple of windows on the shady side of the Arctic Fox open, and I'm perfectly comfortable. How can that be you ask?
It's the magic of single-digit humidity. There's not a drop of sweat on me, I'm not sticking to my chair, and my clothes aren't sticking to me. Low humidity is wonderful, it's the reason that I don't need an air conditioner when it's 90 degrees outside, and one of the reasons that the desert is so popular in the winter.
