Deming to Blythe: Day 33

That’s Deming, New Mexico to Blythe, California and about another 500 miles.  We are finally in the state of our destination. 2015-07-18 11.59.29-1 But along the way, around Tucson, AZ we received word that our son’s surgery is now scheduled for Thursday and not Monday.  I think this has put everyone into a dive, although we all knew it was a possibility.  He is doing well despite this news and I guess can afford to be bumped for more serious cases.

2015-07-18 17.24.25Our day was mostly a mad drive through the desert and, if you can believe, desert rain storms.  There was no rain today in Seattle – because all the rain was falling in New Mexico and Arizona.  I can’t tell you how beautiful it was, not to mention how much cooler it certainly it was than if the sun had been shinning.  It was a cool 88 degrees most of the day.  When we got out at rest stops along the way we got both wet and then dried off immediately.

We are in Blythe, CA for the night and have about three and a half hours of driving tomorrow.2015-07-18 19.36.42
