Yup a tiny bit of snow, high winds and overcast most of the day, but was strill able to BBQ supper.

Where are we today ?
           Must be adjusting to the time zone, actually slept until 5:30 this morning, thats about my normal wake up time. Well the weather gods were pretty well right on with their predictions, below freezing this morning and began to snow at 7 am on my first walkabout. Very dark stormy skies and winds 25mph plus.  So we did a bit of discussing where we going from here on Monday, but still nothing written in stone, lots of options.
\
          Then a quick trip to Edgewood NM for a few groceries, only light snow but high winds, glad we were not in the coach travelling today. 
           A bite for lunch and another walkabout, stopped at the library here in the park and exchanged a couple dvds. Then watched another action Movie this afternoon. Returned it and got another for our library. Done by 3 pm and the sun came out, nice blue skies and still a bit windy only 40f. The sun was nice though.
          For supper I thawed out a pork loin roast and was going to do it in the oven. But by 3:30 blues skies and the wind died down. So I preheated up our Weber Q and set the roast on to grill about 4 pm was done shortly after 5 and even grilled a cored apple with cinnamon. Got to finish another book while the roast was cooking. And again a tasty salad we had another wonderful  meal. Lotsa leftovers for Suzie's lunch sandwiches.
Pretty nice out now at 4 o'clock but still only 35f
our Weber performed flawlessly again
what a great way to wind up the day
           Another trip outside for the garbage, post the blog and watch a tiny bit of tv.
          Always something for us to do, the next few days promise to be clear skies, less wind and sunny, temps in high 50s maybe more, will be awesome.
            Glad that you took the time to stop by and you can make a comment if you are so inclined.

  2. We've often thought about New Mexico for the winter, but there is obviously too much chance for that kind of cold and we're not prepared to put up with that.

  6. Nice touch, listing your location at the beginning of each post. Unfortunately, most bloggers don't realize how helpful this is to the reader. Still enjoying your inclusion of cooking tips and recipes; I'm using my Q more, now that you've shown what all you can cook on it!

  10. We're actually sweltering with record temps here in Tampa and the snow looks wonderful to me! I like a little cool weather, but only if I know I'll be heading to warmer climates soon.

  11. Well, you know how warm it has been in southern Ontario....but to see snow in Arizona, New Mexixo or even Southern California, at high elevations, is not unusual. When are you heading for the low elevation desert?

  14. I agree with Mike Mills. It's nice to post where you are. I've missed reading the blogs a couple of days in a row and then try to figure out where people are.
