A Weather Post

For awhile, it looked like the cold snap we had a couple of months ago would be it for winter.  We were wrong.  First there was rain, and a fair amount of it.  The wipe seal on the front passenger slide needs to be replaced, it’s allowing water intrusions into the bus.  So that slide is closed for the time being.  Losing that 17 inches of space really makes the RV feel smaller.

Here is the preferred outfit for grilling in the rain, as modeled by Jim.  I think the headlamp with the hood is a nice touch.  The headlamp has been an excellent aid to cooking after dark.


Friday we made the terrible choice to drive down Grant road from the freeway heading east.  If you’re in Tucson, do NOT do this.  They’re widening the road, and the entire thing is just nightmarish.  I think a lot of local businesses are going to go under because people are not willing to drive there.  We don’t know how far east it goes, but Grant is now off the let’s drive here list.  You can see where the new road bed will be on the other side of the road.


Yesterday morning, the dew point equaled the temperature for a bit and we had fog.  We don’t see that very often.


The slide will stay in until Tuesday.  Our storm from the south has moved on, but next we will be swept by the horrific weather in the GPNW.  They’re having high winds, sideways rain, snow and power outages.


So that’s it – a nice soothing weather post with no mention of all the troubles in the world.


  1. Hahahaha! That's Dave's grilling outfit too, complete with headlight!

  2. We have had a lot of foggy mornings here in central Florida lately -- temps and dewpoint both in the 60s. Looks like an early summer here with highs in the 80s every day in the 10-day forecast. I think winter is done here. Not complaining but not quite ready for summer in February. Oh well!

  3. Interesting chef's outfit Jim is wearing.
    Don't mind the rain heading our way but not looking forward to the cold. We've been spoiled this winter.

  4. Yep, love the efficiency of a headlamp for grilling!

    Boy do we need rain in SoCal...the tiny spritzes we got last night were worthless.

  5. So funny...that's Eric's grilling outfit too! Nothing stops us (ummm...that would be him, to be precise) from grilling. :-)
