Fred/111 degrees/blowing dogs off chains!
Taking a nap until 4 and then getting up when the trailer started shaking. Thinking it was an earthquake I looked out the window to see strong winds and dust blowing everywhere. It was blowing at least 20 knots with higher gusts. It was also getting dark as in dark clouds and was probably going to rain. It had been predicted so no surprise other than the wind and dust or sand.
We found our favorite Japanese restaurant only 5 miles away so we went and had a great dinner of Phlidelphia roll, edamame, Goyza, and tempura shrimp and veggies. While enjoying the delicious meal at our window table, it started to rain and rain it did for the next 4 hours or so. I guess it is the monsoon season in this part of the world.
Made it back to the trailer for showers and some reading as we tried to fall asleep in the 100 degree heat. Not easy as the air conditioner is loud, so you were not able to sleep due to noise or heat, take your pick.
Anyway tomorrow we are off to Flagstaff.
