We woke up Wednesday morning to 6 inches of snow. Rain was in the forecast, not snow. The forecast was for more rain and we had hoped it would melt the snow. That never happened and it looks like more snow tonight. It never got above 1C/34C all day. Fortunately we never lost power. There are over 6000 folks without power for 24 hours.
It has been a hectic day of back and forth between the house and the RV with all the last minute items that needed to be moved. Some went into the RV and then back again to the house. Right now Colin and the fellow we hired to blow out our lines are doing their thing. Last year it took 15 minutes but this guy came with a smaller compressor and has been at it for an hour. Next year I will insist on the boss with the big machine to get the the job done.
The plan is to sleep in the RV on the street tonight. We have the furnace running and one 15 AMP cord to a heater running through a window. We shall be a very cozy family trying to stay warm. I will admit to being somewhat concerned with the weather over the next three days and nights. So far it looks like we won’t have to deal with much if any precipitation but the lows are what concerns me. First night Moses Lake, Washington, second night Mountain Home, Idaho both boondocking and the last night will be in Ely, Nevada but in an RV Park. However last year it was a month earlier and our slide outs froze. I am certain this trip won’t be without some adventures, you will just have to check back to see what we have been up to.
I think we are getting out in just the nick of time. This very serious weather advisory was just posted.
A very special Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends.
