I thought that once we had packed up the house and moved into the RV that life would become simpler. Not so.
With no power we are relying on our propane for heat, the fridge, to heat water and of course to cook. No wonder that we were quickly getting close to the bottom of the tank, especially with this nasty weather. Colin ran outside in his socks yesterday out on the street to flag down this passing truck. He was in his Mexico thinking plane of mind.
The propane trucks only service the large propane tanks at the sites here for those of us who live here. We do have an account but right now no large tank yet on this site but the fellow listened to our sob story and kindly helped us out. Obviosuly it was not an easy task, you can see his blue arm under the slide out. He was well compensated for his effort.
Meanwhile the lake continues to rise. It is now up 36 inches...well that was yesterday afternoon.
With careful calculations Colin figures it can rise another 9 inches before we have to start doing something.
On the plus side we went to Home Depot to special order 2 pocket doors for $1000.00 but found they didn’t have enough information for us to make that kind of investment sight unseen so we settled on two others for $440.00 which will do just fine. The saved money will be put to use in another area where we are over budget. A little give and take.
The floor is complete on our new place with walls perhaps going up this week.
Carmeh managed to find a bit of sun on the only day we have had sun. Forecast is more rains and showers.
We had to deal with intermittent internet yesterday and phone service. Repair tech comes tomorrow. Meanwhile today we get to have a meeting with the
crack cement guy! Should be fun!
Just checked….lake up one inch this morning:(
