Birthday Girl, back in the HOT Valley
We enjoyed a couple of days up in Truckee, and headed down to the valley mid-morning, and arrived at 1:00 sharp. The dogs were over joyed to be back in “Arny Land”, and when Sandy got home from work a little before 4, well, they let her know that they missed her too.
Today is Marcia’s birthday. Mom had chicken and rice, and Sandy brought a shrimp, scallop, clam sauce linguini dish that Arny made the day before. Marcia did not want to a “big thing” for her birthday, and I plan to take her out for some Greek food in the next few days.
It was 85 when we arrived, and by 4 pm it was hitting 90. Now that is not nearly as hot as some of the temps we encountered over the summer, and some of the temps we missed when we escaped up to the Washington coast back in August…but it was the hottest temps we had encountered for a few weeks now. And at nightfall in Utah and up in Truckee it immediately seems to get to 70 and then it falls quickly from there. It was 36 degrees this morning when we awoke. It is past 9 pm right now and still in the mid to low 70’s. Can’t complain about those temps, but sure is warmer than what we have been used to over the past few weeks. At least the triple digit temps are over…or at least we hope they are over.
There are a few ‘minor’ items that I need to take care of, which I will share in my next post in a few days. Overall, we have been very happy with the performance of the motorhome over the past few months. I think all motorhome and RV owners know that there is “always something” that needs to be done….just how it is.
