|trusty little Honeywell heater|
First, we have to make sure the diesel engine block heater has been going for a couple of hours before starting the coach. Next, we have to check the awning toppers for ice, since we had a torrential downpour a couple of days ago, there's a good chance we're going to have to knock off the ice before trying to pull the slides in. Then we are going to unhook the sewer, (the water was disconnected yesterday to avoid freezing the hose and faucet) pull in the slides and drive out to a location down the street for propane. It's a pain to have to unhook and pull in, but you gotta do what you gotta do to stay warm. We could have a power outage and need to run the generator, so we're going to fill our diesel fuel as well. Just like preparing for winter driving in a car, we're going to make sure we are prepared for the ice and sleet storm that is certainly heading our way, according to the weatherman.
Had to postpone seeing my daughter today for the Strand, didn't want her to be driving Houston interstate with freezing sleet heading back to her home. We'll get together Saturday, the one nice day to look forward to. Nice, as in 53 degrees for the high and sunny...hey, I'll take that! My hometown school has had four snow days already this year...wouldn't you know, they get all the snow AFTER I leave!
