She'll be fine but tomorrow looks worse and she definitely doesn't want to be going out Tue or Wed. Too many people and too much prep to do. And we're not even having a big shindig
One thing bout full timing is you won't have any big productions anymore during holidays. We either eat with family or just go out somewhere. This year all the kids are at their in laws so we are hanging here at the home base and joining the full timers here for a joint Thanksgiving meal.

Y'all stop talking about how cold it is. I get chills.

I had to click the S&B Thermostat up to 70 a few minutes ago reading about how cold it is "up-North."

Laughing out loud here on that one! What I meant was herding them into their predator proof night abode! They don't mind the cold... throw a hay bale windbreak up for them and they are happy campers as long as they have water to drink and feed to eat.

Get up here! Temp in the fridge will be about 32 degrees without power!

Sorry PT, couldn't resist.

What a freeky verbose group!!! I am having trouble keeping up with y'all. We only got a couple inches of the white stuff here, but it has been very chilly. As for the next GC in 2015, I wonder about the inflated campground prices due to the motorcyclists descending on Sturgis?
What are the dates of summer vacation for school kids? Our Gkids have 3 week differences in the start of vaca in different districts. So I definitely wouldn't dare to guess what the Canadian school schedule is.
April is hard for us as we need to seek and find the mighty Morel.
Ducks have down to keep them warm, similar to the comforter on our bed.
Is your Norcold self defrosting?

All I know about RV frigs is that if you can smell ammonia, they are toast and if you have a Norcold you need to update your insurance regularly and have weekly fire drills.

Judy, Morel mushroom season runs thru April and into early May in parts of Arkansas. Fear not, you can enjoy several passions if you join us for the GC@CL.

Thanks for positive thoughts (CampDaven $ PT jeep). We're working hard to join y'all. By the way it's going to be 56 degrees here in Ft myers tonight. I may have to actually put on SOCKS!!!
They look really weird with flip flops, but it's an acquired look. Still socks!! I'm gonna have to find heated flip flops when we actually leave the boat. Oh! I smell a business opportunity.
