Sunday October 4, 2009-High Desert RV Park

I woke early this morning as usual and turned on the television. I learned that last night's "evening glow" had been cancelled due to high winds. Now keep in mind that this is balloon high winds of 23-25 mph, so there was nothing to really worry about if you aren't going up in a balloon. We didn't miss anything by choosing not to go last night. I could still hear the wind howling out here at the RV park, so we didn't go back to the launching this morning. As it turned out, that was a good choice too because they postponed the launches this morning until after 8 o'clock and several balloons decided not to launch. We watched the ones that did lift off on the television. It wasn't quite the same, but it was nice anyway, and we weren't cold and weren't standing in a long line.

We stayed inside today and I got caught up on my sleep. I spent a little time outside because the weather here is wonderful! It was cold this morning, about 41 degrees, but it warmed up nicely to about 70, although it was windy all day. We went to the grocery store to pick up a few essentials and came back home and watched Sunday afternoon pro football for the first time this season. When we were at Priest Gulch we got no local channels, so no football. I did catch last Monday night's game, so I can't say I haven't seen any football at all this season, but it sure was nice being able to see Dallas get beat on Sunday!

We went to the Furr's Fresh Buffet that is near the park. It is not a buffet like we were used to in McAllen, but a cafeteria style serving and if you want something else, you can ask your server for it or go back and get it yourself. We got plenty of food on the first go-round, so we didn't overeat as we usually do at a buffet. The food was okay, but nothing to great. The food in McAllen was much better.

We came back home and watched more football and I wrote this entry. We are planning to leave by ten or so in the morning.

So long.
