Hot water is GOOD!

The weather was typical for for the end of November. It rained Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday morning there was frost every where and it stayed frozen all day, Thursday morning was clear and the temperature dropped to around 26 degrees and never got over 45. It began to rain around 8:30. PM and continued off and on all day Friday. We had planned to do some trap shooting on Friday  but canceled that because of the rain and cold. Rain and occasional hail  on Saturday. Sunday was clear and very cold. Joanne, Dave, Patti and I, cleaned up, took down the walls of the Dining hall and packed up to go home. We got home around 5:15 Sunday evening.

Monday morning we went to the storage yard and got “Plan B”.
I think we will be ready to leave for Quartzsite in a couple of weeks.
