Thank you all for your words of encouragement for me re the loss of my dog. I appreciate all the hugs sent and I feel so warmed by them. Thank you.
I mentioned in my last post that I’d talk about weather in my next post and here it is. I should have stayed in Seattle. The weather in Tucson has been awful. For example, rainfall so far this month in Seattle - .06, in Tucson – 1.86 (as of last Saturday). As I recall, my reason for leaving Seattle was to get away from the rain. This is a candle holder I have outside on my cement pad and it took two days to get this much rain…
We got this much yesterday…
I guess I need to get a rain gauge.
Prior to the rain we had two days of constant wind. There’s a vent on the east side of my motorhome, the direction the wind was coming from, and it kept flapping…for two days!!! The first night I finally had to unearth my earplugs so I could sleep because I couldn’t block out the flapping noise.
Prior to the two days of the wind blowing it was terribly cold here. I had to go buy a hat and warmer gloves to wear when I was taking my dog potty or for just going outside. I even bought an oil heater, at the recommendation of the man who sold me my Alpha, and it helps. Oh yeah, an electric blanket too. I’m talking cold.
Watching the news last night I saw that Tucson was 1° warmer than Seattle.
I will admit that some days after the sun comes out I’m able to sit outside with a light jacket on. Those days have been few and far between.
I’d be going nuts if I were still in Olivia, my Winnebago View, with the lack of space. It helps to have the extra space that I now have in my Alpha, but I’m supposed to be outside, not locked inside because of the weather. It gets dark so early and the nights seem to last forever.
Enough of the weather. I’ve met some great people here in the pet section of the Voyager. I’ve noticed that there seems to be more camaraderie in the pet section, probably because of all the dogs being walked.
One of my neighbors from Alberta, Diane, wanted to take a class in glass fusion and talked me into going with her. I went along reluctantly and ended up really liking it. Here’s my first project…
Tomorrow I'm going to talk about MiFi...and how unhappy I am with it.
Hanging in There,
