This Has Been the Warmest Winter Ever!

I have been coming to Yuma every Christmas/New Years for a long time now, and I think this is the warmest weather we've ever had! The temperatures have been in the upper 70s - WOW! The BLM land behind the VFW is a popular spot.

The only downside is that big yellow thing on the left, but what the heck - I love trains!

New Year's morning we all came out in our PJs.

I was the Belle of the Ball in my Winnie-the-Pooh PJs and my Tigger friend. Who would have thought that I would get so much use out of these PJs?

After our Yuma gathering, we moved over to Wellton to Kurt's gathering.

It's a really nice spot, where you can walk along the canal -

Until this guy comes by and sprays water all over you...

After the heavy rain that we had one day last month, the desert looks like it has been spray-painted green.

Once again, Kurt took us on a trip into the Barry Goldwater Range. You have to get a free permit in Yuma, and sign your life away, to enter the range.

You have to agree to:
Detonations from falling objects
Live bombs, rockets, etc.
Mine shafts
Poor roads
High temperatures
Venemous reptiles
Lack of water, food
Etc, etc, etc....

And believe it or not, we found a rocket!

And a whole lot of beautiful scenery - more on this later!


  1. The cold weather migrated over here to Rockport, Tx. This is the second cold year here. This heavy humidity certainly makes me wish for a desert environment.

  2. It hasn't been that warm here in AJ but it's not been too bad. Went to see B & K Wednesday and sure missed you guys. Love those PJ's.

  3. I wish I could have enjoyed your warm weather. I spent part of my winter in Fernley, NV working for Amazon. Not too bad. Only got down to 4 degrees. Brrrrrr!!

    Now I am enjoying friends in Quartzsite. Much better.

  4. Love the PJs. Looks like so much fun and a great group.

  5. OMG! Detonations, live bombs, mine shafts! Please be sure to let us hear from you again soon. And yes, love the PJs and Tigger. :)

  6. So if you find a rocket, do you get to keep it?

  7. Hey Diana! We've had a strangely warm winter here in NW Il, too. Until last Mon.,1/9, we had had temps ranging from the 40s--60s and just a dusting of snow! We hardly knew how to act, but not to worry, we got the hang of it. We learned which makes life easier and more pleasant for sure.
    You look cute in your jams with Tigger. I have 2-pc set myself--wore them for Halloween once in a furniture store I worked in. Add a lollipop and pigtails and you're all set! Janie

  8. we had a litte cold snap...last couple of days but ITS been so warm the bulbs are coming up now...
    FUN To wear your pjs out I see some people wearing theirs in Walmart...slippers too..LOL
    WHAT kind of rocket is that? yikes...
    I saw ALaska on the news they have everyones SNOW...

  9. Count your blessings for warm weather while you can. Looks like ya'll are having a great time in the sun. Just an average winter here in Florida; two days cold followed by five warm, etc, etc.

  10. Wonderful pictures as usual and so glad your getting the warm weather im jealous, that sure would feel good here right now. Love the jammies hehe. Happy weekend to you!

  11. We are experiencing our cooler summers in Aus. Would love to journey on my own Life On The Open Road :)
