Another quiet day in the RVMdom it seems. So any ponders out there? Any scouting reports?

Where have all the mutants gone...

Way to go CW! Our first experience with repairs at a camping world resulted in the same experience that you had. No complaints.



Uh huh! Rising, rising, rising with an expected surge on the coast line of about 4-5 feet. Plus a deluge of rain.



Mel and Kate! If they get rising water from this here storm Arkansas is in trouble. They are 565 miles north of us here on the coast. Little Pebble is only 474 miles.

We are staying in place, hoping for the best. Storm starts around 4 a.m. tomorrow morning. Really to late to leave town then and to sleepy to leave now. Hoping for the best.

The landing is supposed to be in Matagorda, TX which is SW of us. Since we are on the West side of the storm we will be on the "dirty" side and expecting large downpours. Possibility of up to 8"-10" of rain. Now, let us hope that the storm system we have in place will protect us. There is a sea wall around Texas City that was designed to stop a 20 foot tidal surge. Galveston is a barrier reef for us and when Ike hit with 25' surge on Galveston, it was about 16-17 feet when it hit our sea wall. We also have 8 pumps, Archimedes principle, that will each pump 125,000 gallons per minute of rain/flood water. It's a slow process but it works. However when so much rain is expected to come all at once - who knows. We have had high water in the streets and up into the yard, but so far we have been very lucky and none in the house.

Pray please.

Wayne be safe. Oooms and prayers coming your way.

Be safe down there.
So far, so good, most of the heavy stuff has been SW of us. Hope it stays that way

Our thinking was, we would be lucky to get the rolling condo back in a month.......

First CW called in Friday to confirm the appointment, we took it in at 10 today, they called us at 1 and said it was ready.
Still cannot believe it.....






Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

Wow! I can hardly believe it either. Good for you!

PS: While we were at "your" CW this spring, I did tell the manager what the general public perception is of his facility. You don't suppose that actually did any good???
