Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Double digit temps!

FINALLY we are into double digit temps!  Last week, it was 112 and 113 here and my principal wouldn't let the kids out for lunch recess, which meant teachers got a 30 minute lunch and then for 2 days had to take the kids to their classrooms.  Well, this week it was 106 and 107, so they did get recess, but this weekend, it will be 98 and 99 degrees here!  A cooling trend, for sure!  Next week, after Labor Day, we climb back up to 106 and 107, but at least, for now, the evenings are cooling down.  Right now I have every window in the house open and there is a nice breeze coming inside.  PHEW!~  It was a LONG summer!  And, it has been a LONG first 3 weeks of school.  I already caught a norovirus and had the stomach flu for nearly 3 days.  I lost 2 days of sick leave.  A lot of my family & friends already have sore throats.  I'm getting up in the middle of the night and drinking water with lemon juice and my scratchy throat has been kept at bay.

I'll be going up to the horses tomorrow (Sunday) and then Monday hubby and I might drive over to the Whitewater Preserve.  They cleaned out one of their holding ponds and it will be cooler up there.

Have a great weekend!  Photos are from our November, 2014 visit to the preserve.
