Where is that Global warming when you need it?
Admittedly compared to most other places in the US over the past week it hasn’t been very cold here but, it has been cold enough. As the above picture shows Raider needed a blanket in the morning as we waited for the heater to warm up the trailer.
We had three days of very windy weather followed by three days of what we consider very cold weather. Through it all it has been very clear and sunny.
So cold the hummingbird feed froze solid!
I set the feeder out in the sun for about an hour and all was well.
Our Resident Anna’s Hummingbird was glad it had melted!
Here at the Pahrump Escapee Park they have the fresh water faucets very close to the ground and inside of wooden boxes.
Inside the boxes are filled with insolation.
However, the night the temperature dropped to 19 degrees that wasn’t enough. Even though I disconnected and drained our hose, the faucets inside the box froze! I boiled some water in a tea kettle and poured it on the faucets and we had water again. Today it is 66 and they are forecasting 70s for tomorrow.
The locals remind us that in 6 months it will 115 degrees here! We will be long gone before then!!
