This morning I bought my Christmas present (well, used points to get my Christmas present)…..a trip to Palm Springs! For several years, we’ve made a trip to Palm Springs on the first weekend of January to attend the Inland Empire Hound show and the Kennel Club of Palm Springs show at the polo grounds in Indio. I won’t be taking a dog this year; I’m just going to watch….and hopefully enjoy some warm weather for a change.
The weather in Palm Springs can be absolutely gorgeous at this time of year….or it can make you wish that you’d stayed at home. The last time that we went, they had to cancel the show on the first day because strong winds blew down the enormous tents at the show. We’ve also experienced torrential rain and cold temperatures. One year, we couldn’t fly out of Palm Springs because the low clouds prevented planes from landing (there’s no radar at the Palm Springs airport!).
