Wind Storm, Sunshine, and Solar Power

Last night we had a tremendous wind storm that blew our tent/canopy right off the trailer. Luckily it wasn’t damaged and we stowed it in the car until this morning. This morning dawned clear and cool. The Texans call this a cold front – it’s only 60 today. I’ll be painting outside today. I want to try to capture the large vista and sky in front of our campsite.

The solar power is not equal to keeping our furnace running. However, it more than makes up for our other electrical usage. The furnace fan simply takes too much power. This is a lesson learned in cold camping.

We have decided to extend our stay here another week. That means we will head for Tucson around Feb. 1. We’re not looking forward to driving into colder weather when we leave Arizona to head home.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
