We were getting to get ready to go when I checked the weather report. Glad I did.
We had winds like that on our way here from Quartzsite in November. Not fun at all. By later this afternoon the winds should stop.
A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of between 30 and 40 mph are expected, or wind gusts of between 40 and 58 mph. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. In addition, strong winds over desert areas could result in briefly lowered visibilities to well under a mile at times in blowing dust or blowing sand. Use extra caution. Action Recommended

So just going to enjoy the day off. I spent the day reading a good book. We took a walk around this campground, it is a lot bigger than I thought it was. The back of it has a lot of "park models" in it. Some are really nice. Bill watched some TV and read himself to sleep. Very relaxing. I've been watching the flags the wind is strong enough to be bending the poles.
Tomorrow if weather is good we will head towards home again. Maybe as far as Quartzsite. Maybe not that far. No time line for when we need to be home.
