We reached the Escapee park in Deming about 3:00 in the afternoon. We have stayed there before and knew that it was a very bare bones kind of park but the rates have gone up. $20.32 is too much.
It is always windy in Deming, we expected that but what a day for weather. Winds were about 40 mph and tumbleweeds were flying across the interstate. No damage was incurred but it sure is scary when you can't do anything but drive over them. Then the rain started. The sky was black as night. We had torrential rain until just before Benson, when it snowed. Real snow, settling on the sides of the road and covering the hill tops.
We went into the Walmart in Benson and when we came out, this was the sky.
We drove south from Benson to Patagonia Lake State Park. We are staying on the edge the lake for two nights. We have electricity and as we speak, we have both our electric heaters running. There are people here in tents! brrrr.
The weather liar promises temperatures in the 70's for the rest of the week. Bring it on I say.
