Enough Already!

Okay, I am officially fed up with the wind, snow, and cold here in northern Arizona! All night Saturday the wind rocked our motorhome, and our slide topper awnings  flapped like they were going to tear themselves apart.

Sometime about dawn the wind finally stopped, and then it became very quiet. We lived here long enough to know that this usually means snow, and sure enough, when we opened our day/night blinds, the world had turned white again! We groaned, then rolled back over and fell asleep!

We got up a few hours later to discover about two inches of wet, heavy snow covering everything in sight.  The wind had blown so hard that the snow was plastered to our windows on the driver’s side of the motorhome! I am so out of here!

We spent the early part of the day answering e-mail and watching it snow, and about 3 p.m. we drove into Show Low to visit with daughter Tiffany and her family. My daughter is a lot of wonderful things, but a cook is not one of them. Her hubby Jim, on the other hand, loves to cook. But both of them will happily defer to Miss Terry’s culinary skills any chance they get, so Terry made some delicious pork loin sandwiches, which were outstanding.

We hung out with Tiffany and the kids until about 7:30, when it was getting close to the girls’ bedtime, then headed back to our motorhome at Juniper Ridge RV Resort.  The snow had stopped falling by then, but it was darned cold.We have a lot of little things we need to get done today, and hopefully UPS will deliver a couple of things Terry has been waiting on.  Tomorrow we plan to head down to Tucson for a few days. Maybe by the time we get back up here, spring will have finally arrived.

Thought For The Day –  By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was actually right, he usually has a son of his own who thinks he’s wrong.

  1. Hey Nick, judging from all the empty spots there at Juniper Ridge RV Resort, it looks like you guys are the only ones foolish enough to be camping in the middle of winter!

  2. Go figure ! The weather must be backwards because up here in the north country of Wisconsin it was 71 yesterday again!

  3. Nick and Terry,

    It is 98 here in Kissimmee, Fl. At 6:30 last night in Frostproof, it was 102.

  4. I’m in Albuquerque NM right now, so I share your pain.

  5. Hey Nick…does your furnace keep yer winny toasty warm or do you need some extra heating equipment?
