Wow, was it ever cold last night. The temperature plummeted to 22F (-5C).
Good thing I disconnected the water hose, because the faucet was frozen solid this morning.
We were snug as a couple of bugs, because we left an electric heater running on low, plus I set the furnace on low to ensure our tanks would not freeze up.
Because it was so darn chilly, we didn't spend as much time at the historic Fort Davis site as we would have liked to.
Apparently, this fort is one of the best preserved for it's age.
There are all sorts of ruins, and some of the buildings have been rebuilt to their original standards.
After quickly touring the grounds, we jumped back into our rolling home, and cranked the heat on high.
The drive to Carlsbad covered miles and miles of flat scrub brush, with a lot of oil rigs in the fields.
Of course our main purpose for stopping here is to visit the famous Carlsbad Caverns.
Believe it or not, it will be warmer inside the caves than outside tomorrow ... LOL.
