Stayed in bed late again this morning because when I first woke up it was cold outside the blankets and the bedroom furnace was working to keep up. So I did the manly thing; rolled over and went back to sleep for two hours.
When the outside gets good and cold overnight, that’s a sign the clouds have gone away. Without a cloud cover the high desert can get very cold indeed overnight. Suspicion was confirmed when the sky lightened enough to see it; the clouds had rolled away and I wouldn’t have to worry about my batteries today.
Then half an hour later…
But I think it’s superficial and will burn right off when the sun gets over the local horizon. Should be a sunny, and possibly a busy and unusually social day. I have to make rosemary bread, early enough that I can revert to Plan B if the oven won’t light.
