Ranger Kathryn's Arches

Kill Bill

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kathryn Colestock-Burke @ 7:11 am

I came home from my sunrise internet session this morning to find that Ranger Bill (a Nevada native) had turned on the heat.  It was 65 degrees outside, with a predicted high of 90.  My window is open…

On a strictly observational note, temps change quickly in the desert.  The sun is our Radiant Heat Source, and when it comes up, things heat up quickly.  When it sets, temps cool quickly.  There are no bodies of water here that would hold the heat and release it slowly.  Five degrees an hour is not unusual on both ends, in my limited experience.

P.S.  I am not really going to kill Bill.  He lived in AZ for quite a time and has little cold tolerance.
