A brisk southerly wind kicked up a little dust today but sunny sky’s held our temps in the high 60’s. Definitely better all round weather here this year than last year. We were about 20 minutes down the valley staying at the ranch a year ago at this time & the days & nights were definitely cooler. In February we had a storm come in with low dark clouds late in the day & the following morning as the clouds began to lift off the mountain tops we could see they had left a frosting of snow on all the mountains around us. The Dragoon & Mule Mountains were white but it was the Swisshelm Mountains that lived up to their name looking every bit like a Swiss skiiers paradise.
SWISSHELM MOUNTAINS ON Feb. 8/09
SNOW ON FEBRUARY 2ND OF 2007 & NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS WAS A BIG COLD SURPRISE!!
Noticed we crossed the 200,000 visitor’s mark on our blog this morning so I checked back in Sitemeter to see where that particular visit had come from. Someone in Salt Lake City Utah clicked our site at 08:30 A.M. & remained for 10 minutes & 8 seconds reading 2 pages. They were using a Mac Computer with the Safari 3.1 Browser. Thanks for dropping by Salt Lake:)) Visitor number 199,999 came in from Las Cruses New Mexico & visitor 200,001 dropped by from Kitchener Ontario, Canada….might have been my cousin Norma & husband Jim:)) A few other locations close to the 200,000 mark were, Los Angeles & San Francisco California, Orlando Florida, Leasburg Missouri, Denver Colorado, San Antonio Texas, Mechanicsville Virginia, Baton Rouge Louisiana & Sarasota Florida, just to name a few. I think Sarasota might have been my Aunt Jean. Always extra nice to see family members for sure:)) And, just to keep our 200,000 visits in perspective, here’s a Lady RV’er with nearly 3 million visits to her site……WENDY USUALLY WANDERS
When I first started the blog a few years back I had a habit of writing the whole darn thing in one big blonk. No paragraphs!! If I did, it was very few. Wasn’t long & a comment came in suggesting I break the blog up into paragraphs to make it an easier read. So, thanks to that comment, that’s what I have done ever since. Turns out that comment came from a fellow in Silver City NM by the name of Boonie at, OCCUPATION OF INDEPENDENCE. While in the Silver City area a couple years ago we looked Boonie up & he was the very first real live RV blogger person we ever met. Nice of Boonie to leave us a comment on yesterday’s blog & that’s what reminded me of the paragraph thing.
Some folks sent us some wintery scenes of our house back in Bayfield this afternoon. Sure glad we are in Arizona. Thanks Maureen, Jan & Bruce:))
I wonder why it is that whatever I make to eat it never tastes as good as when somebody else makes it. Kelly can make a ham sandwich & I can make the same ham sandwich but her ham sandwich always tastes better. Why is that!! The greasiest spoon restaurant on the block can probably boil better tasting water than I can. If I make bacon & eggs they never taste as good as Kelly’s bacon & eggs. She can even make a better bowl of corn flakes than me. D’ya suppose it’s got something to do with the pinch of peanut butter I put on everything……..:))
