We had a minor ice storm last night.
It’s not like it wasn’t forecasted for 3-4 days and the salt trucks were out along with the cinder trucks…this morning in a 2 mile stretch on the interstate there were 22 wrecks during the morning rush hour traffic. If the morning news shows salt trucks sliding off the road why do these folks not SLOW DOWN!!!
Nice time to have an RV show right? Luckily Mr. Fix-It was able to delay his drive over the bridge to Louisville an hour or so. He drives a 350 dually & generally can scoot on through. The RV shows we have a love/hate relationship with….a hell of a lot of work and LONG hours but, a good show can make or break the year.
I generally keep busy straightening beds, and general clean up in the trailers. There are always a few who turn the kids loose to run as if they were in a playground to jump up and down on the beds & think it’s cute. Those are the same parents that spill beer on the carpets…in front of the signs that say **no drinks allowed in trailers**
In the quiet times I can knit. So yesterday afternoon I cast on a scarf for myself. By the time we closed for the evening I had just 3 inches to go
and finished it this morning.
It’s drying now and I think I’ll wear it tomorrow.
It’s so blasted cold. That damp can’t get warm cold….(not to be confused with Mama Pea’s –0 cold)
My power bill came in and it’s up $100.00 for the past 30 days. Yes we generally have a increase in winter but not that much. When we built the addition we needed to blow extra insulation in the attic space (there was some but….)but time got away from us. I know that is impacting as it’s much cooler out there. It’s first on the gotta do list this spring. Its not like I keep the heat cranked up…generally in the 60’s and just wear a sweater. But, I’ve also realize the little things I’ve not done this year that I have in the past. Little things like the keeping the closet doors closed…I don’t need to heat clothes. closing the doors to rooms not in use, draft catchers on outside doors, keeping the curtains closed in the unused rooms. DUH! Talk about stupid tax! It’s amazing how those little things can save a lot.
Any other tips and tricks you do?
