Well Barb, friends that have been coming in to Yuma for the last month report heavy southbound RV traffic. On Nov. 1 a street that intersects with four RV parks, the Yuma County Sheriffs Dept. probably should have sent out a deputy for traffic control. Motorhomes, fifth wheels going three different directions. Yesterday afternoon sitting out on the VFW patio on US 95 there was a fairly constant steady string of south bound RV traffic.

No one is heading south??? Of course they are. No different than any other year.
I have seen many RVs arriving in Mesa already. The RV parks in our part of town are beginning to see a lot of activity. The Canadians are arriving also. My neighbor works in the office at one of the larger ones. She reports they are super busy already, and have asked her to work more hours.
The grocery stores are definitely getting more busy....and Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Target. Not to mention the restaurants. Go to any McDonalds early in the morning and you will see table full of snowbirds drinking coffee and visiting. Oh yes...there are plenty of them here already.

We're leaving New York State for Florida on Nov. 19th We woke to 6 inches of snow this morning. Getting out of here can't happen fast enough!

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

Nobody arriving in South Texas and none expected. (I wish)

Actually, about like every one of the last ten years.
