Is Spring Here?

It must be spring. I have seen more RV's on the move today than I have all winter.

Driving from Detroit to Indianapolis on I-69 I counted 25 RV's.

Time for us to break camp, explore Indiana's great campgrounds and have a campfire. We have been waiting a long time.

It's been a long time coming in this region, that's for sure. Winter started way back in November for us & it kept hold for 4 months. It was sunny & almost 70 today. It felt real good. Going to the storage yard this weekend to wake the coach up from her winter hybernation. Ahhhh, the season is almost at hand.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Yep - top off the coupe tomorrow. Water gets turned on at the campsite next weekend. We've been dry camping just about every weekend for the past couple of months. First and last time on the road was Thanksgiving at Solomons Island Navy Recreation.

Got a sun burn last week playing golf, 88 today. In central Texas we don't have spring. We go from winter to summer over night, or so the wife says, she's from Virginia.

I was watching the Chicago news station, and they were talking about up to 3 inches of snow in Wisconsin. That sucks. Isn't there a rule that says no snow after April 15? And, as I understand it, there are winter storm warnings out for some of Minnesota?

Tom Skilling was also saying something about in 1967 that they had snow, then a tornado the next day, and had to shovel snow to get to the wreckage.

I hope this is the end of the snow for you guys.

Yup no more snow.....We just converted it to rain....

Was thinking about installing some pontoons to my RV...

I pray....O.. St. Peter please give us some RV camping weather here in the Midwest....We have had our fair share of winter, and over abundance of April showers....Now it's time to camp. so cut us some slack... Go RVing....

It has rained almost non-stop in Indy.
It surely will bring lots of May flowers.

We can't go exploring the Indiana State Parks till I lube our brake calipers. So a few dry weekends would be nice. Then it is burn some high priced diesel fuel and get 50 smiles to the gallon.

If you see us in a state park be sure to drop by.

As hipshot says "there is no spring in Texas!!" 98 deg. yesterday and hasn't rained since Sept '10 which was the 2nd wettest Sept in recorded history! Is it any wonder that half the state is on fire?

We have been in Effingham, IL for almost a week, and it has rained every day. I have been watching the Terre Haute stations, and it looks like southern Indiana and Illinois is getting a lot of flooding.

Sure hope it dries out soon. Farmers need to get in the field, and others need to dry out.
