I am in upstate SC. (Oconee county) Below 1,000 feet elevation, I have had more nights in the 20's. or Lower, this month than I normally see all winter.. and it's only the 18th

Where as we used to speak of "Global Warming" we not talk "Climate Change" Here is how that works as I understand it. NOTE: Though I have a science degree.. This is not the specific science so this is technically above my pay grade.

As the world warms. Weather becomes more and more.. "Energetic" This means the summers get hotter, and the winters wilder, More Hurricasnes, More tornados, More freezing in January and Feb, more days over xx degrees in July and August.. Basically MORE WEATHER.

And cold is what I'd call it.

For me there is "Good news".. The park where I'm at did major renovation a year or two ago... Upgraded water and electric at many sites (Water at all) now nearly all sites are 20-30-50 amp and water faucets are all frostproof Like we used on the farm in MI. (The have a "Drain back" valve and when you shut them off and disconnect the hose they drain back into the ground so only air in the exposed pipe).

So i should be able to re-fill water tank tomorrow when it gets up into the 40s.
Home is where I park it!

Know what you mean. The water tap was frozen at the park connection yesterday morning, the onboard water saved the day for coffee. By noon everything was back to normal. So much for finding the 70 degree weather for the dw

WAY South Texas

We are way down just 8 miles from the border, and it froze here! Woke up to icy steps, a car coated in ice, and icicles on mirrors. What the heck! Darn glad this unit came with the fireplace/heater option that I labeled as "fru-fru". Also darn glad the propane guy came by yesterday, or we might be the icicles.

South FL & CA are usually far warmer than S TX. Cold air from Canada can reach TX easier than the coasts. Mid continent troughs.
That said the coldest S CA winter in 50 years was last year. Of the 11 weeks we were there 9 were cold wet and windy.
Tampa FL just had ice.
Expect the unexpected. Always bring cold weather gear.
Full Timers.

I'm in Florida now, north of Tampa a bit. Last two nights have been in the mid 20s and it looks like tonight is headed that way too. weather reports say "well below average". When there is only a couple of degrees difference from here to my home I Northern NY, something is decidedly wrong. Going through propane like crazy.
