Made trip back home after...

visiting cousins in CA. Got back for one cool day before the next Excessive Heat Watch begins.

Palm Springs

Most recent trip was to Palm Springs, CA. We go there a few times each summer. We like the heat and love the town. Unfortunately, this last trip in mid-August, it was quite humid. It's monsoon season in SoCal after all and not super unusual to get some humidity. In this case, it was due to a hurricane south of Baja Calif that was inching northward. Even had some lightning one late afternoon, which had us frantically get out of the pool and back to our rooms! But it passed pretty quickly, and everyone was back to the pool and whatnot. Social distancing there of course. Unlike some scenes you may have seen in the news, this was a small ten room hotel. Everyone keeps well apart and the management cleans the tables and lounge chairs as soon as a person or couple is done there for the day (indicated by folding the lounge down). Anyway, had a great time despite the humidity (and 115-118 degree temps!).

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Went Camping

Took the motor home out for a few days. Nice first day the wind rain and snow. Temp only in the low 40's with lows in the low 30's

Lost two pine trees and a few shingles, a weather station and a big mess to clean up with the high winds

Tree is blocking the shed so I can't get in to get my saw and cutters to cut the trees up or cut the lawn. sad

Drove to Charlottesville, VA. Around 1 hour drive from my city.

visited a customer for lunch

First time in a restaurant since the quarantine. Figured it was best time since school is starting and don't want to get him sick.

His office is near my parents' last place. Drive back home was weird since i hadn't driven that way in a couple of years and construction zones have moved.

Drove to Calistoga the 1st week of July...

GPS kept giving me a strange route... turns out I had the Avoid Toll Roads selected...

Calistoga and Napa were pretty quiet... a lot of places closed or out of business... crazy overgrown too... new wood fences being built...

I hope they come back after this last round of fires
