Exercise: I walked 3 miles this morning. I dressed in sweatpants, sweatshirt and half can of OFF! That dress was surely a little warm for the walk this morning but it helped to keep the mosquitoes off.

Weather : The monsoons are still active and I can see and hear the thunder and lighting coming this way, so rain is likely.
We had a good rain, the mosquitoes are out!

Exercise: I walked with Jeanne this morning and ended up with 4.2 miles.

Weather: We are getting rain almost everyday since about 10th of this month, good hard rains in this area too. The rain keeps it a bit muddy but given a day without rain or a day that it rains in the late afternoon, it will dry up.
Update to weather: It rain hard and long today, there is a lot of mud.

Weather: Wow, this surprised me this morning when I got up about 6. I throw on some clothes and ran out to take a few pictures and then climb up on top of the RV and swept the snow off my solar panels. I think it will be gone by noon.
Update; It is about 11am and as I look out the windows of my RV I can not see any snow anywhere and it is already about 50° F.

Exercise: We only walked about 1.75 miles today. It was cold and wet so a little slack is okay for a day.
Update: Added about 3/4 miles in the afternoon.

Exercise: We walked 3.6 miles today and it was a windy walk but despite the weather we had a great walk.

Weather: It is a bit cool and windy too, hopefully this won’t last too long. It is cool enough that I am running heat in the RV.

Weather: Looks like we have a rainy day ahead. I woke to rain and it has continue now for over two hours. I will say that we really needed it because things were very dry, so this is good. It is kind of cool too so this is not my favorite kind of weather, I don’t mind the rain so much but with the cold it makes the old bones ache a bit.

Exercise: Not today, it has rain most of the day or at least been misting and it is cold, good day to stay inside and warm 🙂
