Upside down

In non-Bizarro World, it gets warmer in the Northern Hemisphere when you go south and when you go to lower elevations. Quartzsite is at about 880 feet elevation. Yuma is about 80 miles south and at about 140 feet. But it's about 20 degrees cooler in Yuma (where we are today) than it was in Quartzsite (when we were there yesterday.) Because a weather front has blown in. The differences between Quartzsite and Yuma are nothing to the weather.

But, you know, it was just a little too warm before. This is rather pleasant. Unless it decides to rain on us for more than a few minutes. That gives me the trapped-in-the-van feeling.

  1. That's what my computer is for. Takes me beyond the van without having to go out in the weather.
