Unusual winter this year.

It has been 75-77 degrees in Tenn. Tuesday & Wednesday but, change is coming fast. It is suppose to be a high of 40 degrees on Thursday.

I am starting thru complete checkout of the trailer to be out all summer this year. Short sleeves in January.

We've had major fires here in Texas. Part of our cattle operation is near Cross Plains, Texas in Callahan County. Virtually one third of the homes in this town with a population of only 1018 burned to the ground. At last count, 129 homes were completely burned down. A few businesses and churces as well as motorhomes, vehicles, barns, fences, all telephone systems were lost. Two women lost their lives as their houses burned down around them. Cattle and horses lying dead everywhere you look where the fire raged. Others suffered burns so severe that they were put down as it was the only humane thing to do. Business and life in Cross Plains will never be the same no matter what is done to make repairs in the fire's aftermath. Major fires continue to rage at this time. Over 250,000 acres have burned in the week following Christmas Day according to news accounts. To those upset with burn bans and bans on the use of fireworks, ... well they are just CRAZY.

This weather stinks.

We have had great spring weather here, been watching the forcast the last few days and it was to be sunny and highs 50 to 60's. Last night it dropped down to 28 and I just got up and we have snow on the ground not much but snow. We hardly ever see snow. Kinda blows our weekend planning again of a 3 day vulkem makeover. Just makes me sick for the last month the weekends have been rainy or just to cold. We took the tarp off Peppy 2 days ago and I had been washing and waxing and now he is dusted with snow hope we dont find any new leaks.

Wet Winter in California

December to about March or April is generally the rainy season in Northern California. We seldom have rain of any measurable amount in any other month.

On our maiden voyage with our new Airstream we just happened to chose one of the rainiest days of the past 10 years and here's what it looked like in the campground in Vacaville:

Here in Minnesota, we really appreciate the warm weather. It has been hovering around 32 degrees for weeks. GREAT!!! Stay like this til February and then warm up. Seriously, this is usually our coldest week of the year and it is warm. I am saving tons of money on heating.

However, the average temp for any year never varies more than a tenth of a degree or two. That means that we have to have some REALLY SERIOUS WINTER to average out. Just waiting for the other shoe to drop!!!

There is no "I" in the word "team," but there are four in "Platitude Quoting Idiot!"
