Why Are We Here?

Yuma, Arizona         High 101  Low 79

We left Riverton Wednesday and drove straight through to Yuma. It was an 11 1/2 hour drive. I'm afraid I am old enough that I don't think I would enjoy that long a drive by myself, but of coarse I'm not 18 any longer. Cindy drives about half the way. We only take our car to Yuma, not the truck and fiver.

When we got here our yard was in as bad of shape as it has been since we first came here. The neighbors told us that they had high winds at the end of summer which blew lots of sand around. A lot of it ended up in our back yard.

We have spent the last two days cleaning up sand and leaves and still aren't finished. It really is too hot in the middle of the day to be working outside so it is going to take us a while to finish up.

We came here two weeks earlier than before and probably will wait until the first of October before heading south another time.

To answer the question above: We are here because we can be, but are going to be a little later next time.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. I came to Rockport Tx a month earlier this year and that will not happen again either. Too hot and too many mosquitoes.

    1. Yes it is hot. But it will cool off. Maybe you can go to the Yuma Market for more fabric. Are they open this soon?

    2. I don’t think they open until the end of October.

  2. Looking at the dip in the Jetstream Yuma is just below the cooler Fall like temperatures. Don't push yourselves in that heat.
    P.S. We've got the heater on this morning. 46 F.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
