01/02/2014:  We spent our New Years working on bookwork and doing year-end stuff. (No TV reception here, but at least we can use our internet.) Curt adjusted the solar panels to try to find the “right” tilt for maximum use. We haven’t gone into Joshua Tree National Park yet; waiting for the holiday people to be done. There’s a lot of traffic on this road. I don’t know if they’re all going to visit the park, or if some of the cars just go through to the other towns on the north side instead of driving all the way around through Indio, etc. We must have seen over 40 motorcycles go in to the park yesterday. It was windy yesterday, but other than that it’s been in the upper 60’s in the day time, 40’s at night. Maybe 7 or 8 campers here. I talked to my Dad in North Dakota tonight, he said it is supposed to get 40 below Monday night. I don't know if that's wind chill or actual temp, but I can't imagine any person or animal outside in that weather. It's been a long winter already for some of the states.
