Ah, the Edsel!
WOW! Darla up in the North woods of Wisconsin said it was 14 degrees yesterday! Okay I shivered a little then remembered we had the A/C on.(UPDATE SHE SAYS ZERO TONIGHT!) ouch!
It is amazing what the curvature of the earth does to the weather. The fat part at the equator is closer to the sun and stays balmy all year round. But then as the earth curves away from the Sun it gets COLD
Now down South we do have some freezing weather, in NC is has been known to go below zero, BUT VERY SELDOM. And even when it does it doesn’t last long.
Our first introduction to real cold was when I was transferred from Biloxi Mississippi, 80 degrees to Kirksville, Missouri -13 degrees. So icy slick we had to have a wrecker come and pull the trailer into a parking spot.
Old Woody over in NY says it will snow there and most likely it will stay on the ground until spring. It was the same in Kirksville. Darla and her sisters will see snow most of the winter.
My neighbor, Mr. Walker, noticed I was doing what we did in North Carolina, I was wrapping our water pipes in newspaper to keep them from freezing. Mr. Walker was a nice guy he didn’t laugh, but introduced me to ‘heat tape’ to keep the lines from freezing.
Cold? I can handle it. I have sided houses in the sleet. But my girl is COLD NATURED. She is very happy to have a home on wheels IN WHICH we can follow FALL SOUTH and SPRING, NORTH.
The RV update, Insurance has approved the windshield replacement, so maybe later next week we will see some movement. Our new refrigerator is at the RV repair shop awaiting the windshield removal so it can come in and old go out. Tomorrow we start moving stuff out of the motor home to make room workers to remove the carpet. Then we might can drive off soon. ;-)….
