Sounds like everyone is having fun.  Hopefully you all are warm.  This morning we woke to a couple of inches of snow and it is not getting above the low 40s with the lows down in the mid 20s....burr.  The motorhome is sitting out in front of the house where we are sanding and re-varnishing all the inside wood; having to run the heat just to get the varnish to dry.  This has been a really cold winter.

Keeping my fingers crossed the weather in Quartzsite is warmer.

I missed the Happy Hour today because they called and said they would be here to install out new Windshield at 4pm.
Here are a few pics of RV Glass Solutions installing our new passenger side windshield.

While  Happy Hour was well attended, again we froze our toes! ( and more)   Bill and Corinne showed up a bit late due to traffic  while getting to Indio.  Lou Schneider called and was stuck up on a mountain, but hopes to be in tomorrow. Pat and Debbie showed off their  new  shirts they  got as a "2 for deal."  Ray told how lucky he was to have his F number selected and his winning prize was 40% discount on  something he had just purchased, so he got an $800 credit on his credit card! What luck. Many  Folks are still sniffling, coughing and aching.  I am still well but pacing myself.  Barb and Frank drove in but were so bundled up we hardly recognized them.

 Jeff announced a group is going to  Augustine Casino for the  all you can eat Buffet tomorrow Saturday.  I can't recall what time he said to meet by his coach so  folks who want to go can car pool over.  I guess it is a beautiful buffet with seafood,  and prime rib? 

 Igor's Jazz  Cowboys  entertained us tonight.  They were great combination of Western, Dixie and Swing with a Jazz twist music. The  mandolin was my favorite instrument.

We ran home because it was so cold. 45 degrees.

It was 54 in our coach when we got back from the entertainment. Turns out the guys who did the windshield had a side window open passing equipment in and out and it didn't get shut. Gordon was all curled up in the pillows on the bed.

For those here in Indio who are cold, I'd like to point out that the current temperature in Moab (4:45 MST) is NINE. And at my house in Cortez, the temperature is 11, headed to a predicted low of -12. It's all relative.

Yes, cheer up!  It is currently 3 F and tonight is expected to be -8.  Tomorrow may get to 8 again and a low of -4.  We have been below freezing except for a few days in the low 30s since late November.

Wish we could have made it to cold QZ!    :)

Makes our 56 degrees with a low tonight of 34 in Indio look positively balmy :)

We're sitting in our coach watching the Denver game AND watching the parade out our windshield. Life is good.

I'm glad I was finally able to make it to the rally - it was good seeing everyone at the parade.

Ray and Liza - thanks for the food coupons.  I caught the BBQ guy just as he was closing up and he piled my plate so high with BBQ chicken that I had to bring most of it home.   I probably have two more meals in the refrigerator.

Wendy and Mike - I saw your yellow VW and decorated coach first, but I'm sorry I wasn't able to meet up with you.  I was watching the parade from the other end with the rest of the group.

Anyway, I'm back in Van Nuys and getting ready to go into work in the morning.

And that's why we are in Indio and not Moab or Cortez ;D

The Big Top Parade Theme was a hit.  It was one of the most creative and fun parades ever despite  having only 8 floats.  They threw popcorn , peanuts and candy.  RVForum member scrambled to get their goodies, especially Mimi!

There was a crowd who ventured out early to the Augustino Casino seafood buffet and we await the report on that meal. 

Elton John/Billy Joel (look alike) entertainers performed renditions of popular songs and wowed the audience.  In the morning  we head in different directions but with a promise to return to the Indio Western Area rally next year.
