Bitter Cold for the Southwest

This evening we welcome new followers, John & Ellen. Like ourselves, they are from the Northeast and enjoy using their motorhome to head south and escape the cold weather. I don't think anybody is escaping the cold weather here in Arizona right now, however. It is presently 23F degrees and expected to drop to 11F degrees by morning. Our anemometer is recording gusts of 15 to 20 mph. Yikes!

As we travel some of the secondary roads here in Arizona, we often see amusing road names you would never find back on the east coast. Here are a few of our favorites:

Holy Mackerel, there really is a No-Tel Motel! It's in downtown Tucson.

  1. Fun post. Sometimes I wonder if there really is any historical truths concerning “road names”. I suspect the older roads probably ring true at least some of the time. The newer roads, especially in modern housing developments often come across as totally fake. While in the LaBelle, Fl area this winter there were two road names that had my attention, they were “Cowboy Way” and “Cowgirl Way”. Cowboys and Cowgirls in Florida?

    Thanks for the nice welcome!
