Sunsets....



Our Location: Near American Girl Mine Road, BLM, CA
 
Cool over night, I pulled my duvet up to keep me warm. We even used the heater off and on today. 
 
 Sunset, Sunday Dec 29, 2019


 Pretty spectacular, don't you think?



 I'm always amazed at the light show in the skies out here in the desert.
 
We headed off this morning to do some laundry and get a second propane tank filled. We accomplished half of our errand. Nope, we aren't running around nekkid, so as you can tell, it's the propane fill that didn't happen. 
 
Sunday, Dec 29th sunset. Fire in the sky. 



Starting to fade now. 


 And from here it faded quickly. 
 
Laundry was a quick painless couple of hours and for $20 our laundry was completed, washed and dried. We even managed to find a post office for another little side errand. 
 
While grocery shopping on Sunday we noticed this rig in the parking lot. 
 
 
We have been using U-Haul in this area to fill our propane tank and today they refused to fill it due to the 'rattling' in the tank, which the attendant seemed to think is sand and the 'layers' of paint. Considering this is an exchanged tank that has passed inspections before it was filled I'm not sure how those things could be a factor but oh well, we've figured out that we don't really need that tank right now anyway. We'll take it elsewhere and see if they have the same issues. 
 
 
 Sunset tonight, Monday, Dec 30, 2019.





 A chat with my dad tonight to see how things are going. Some rain, ice pellets, freezing rain and a bit warmer weather in his neighbourhood today. It seems they are hovering close to both sides of the freezing mark. Side roads and town roads are icy, highways are good.




 
 I changed lenses to take this photo and the remaining photos as well. A much closer view.










 Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a wonderful day where ever you may be and doing whatever you may be doing.





   
Until next time....take care, be safe, 

Deb

  2. Wonderful sunset pics Deb! They can be spectacular here.
    Certainly odd about the noise in the propane tank. I doubt it is sand. Can you just exchange it? If it is some contamination I would be careful using the propane in it in case it plugs up some of your propane appliances. I would take it to AmeriGas or some propane specialty store. Get a second opinion.

    1. Thanks Dave. I think when they exchange the valve in an exchange tank that some little piece drop inside the tank and that's what we're hearing. I asked at Amerigas if they could exchange it or know where to to get it exchanged and her reply was that there is no where to get one exchanged in the Yuma area, only BBQ tanks. True or not, I don't know, but it is what she told me. I'm not too worried, we have plenty of tanks (two in the Igloo and I carry two small BBQ tanks), so we'll just make do until we either get somewhere that will fill it, exchange it or I'll keep it until we get back to Ontario and exchange it there.

  3. There's just nothing prettier than those Arizona sunsets!! I had the same propane problem, but was able to exchange it ... for a price!

    1. I agree Nancy, nothing quite like a desert sunset to shock and awe a person. I'm just going to hang on to it and see if someone else will fill it or exchange it. If not, I'll just use one of my BBQ tanks in that spot until I find an exchange spot.

  4. Isn't Mother Nature wonderful? So many wonderful sunsets and so different in every part of the world on each day. I bet if you go back to that same place and another attendant is there you will get your tank filled.

    1. Yea she most certainly is wonderful. I think you may be right about a different attendant but I'll try some place else and see what they tell me.
