Sun. Jan. 3

What a fast weekend. It is so cold….I don’t remember the temps being this low for so long and the forecast is no better through Friday (and beyond?). It’s 9:00 in the morning and the temp is 18. The five day forecast has lows from 15 (tomorrow), up to 23 then back down to 13 on Friday morning. And the highs barely go above freezing all week. Last year we were in Texas and the winter was very mild….only got down to freezing on two occasions and the highs were 50-60. In 2008, we were in Georgia for February and March but it never got this cold.

Next winter, if everything goes according to plan, we will be at Gulf State Park in LA (that’s Lower Alabama), located between Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Looking at the weather for this week, it is over 20 degrees warmer there right now. We will be there Dec. 1st through March 31st - four months. It’s only 6 hours away so we be able to come ‘home’ for the holidays, etc., for a week or so at the time.

On Saturday, we went to Arbys/Burger King for lunch with Kyle. Then we goofed around at Publix, Kroger and Dollar Tree. Kyle brought his scooter but it was to cold for him to ride it very much. He did discover the creek at the back of our campsite and managed to get a few “river rocks” to play with. Homemade chili for dinner then we watched “RV” with Robin Williams. We have seen it several time but it is still funny!

Sunday we had Blueberry Muffins for breakfast then took Kyle home and stayed at his house for dinner. Samantha made a Mexican Lasagna that was very good. I need to get the recipe. Falcons won their last game and ended up 9-7 on the season. Looking forward to better record next year!

We got back to the camper in time for Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters.

Two campers Saturday and Sunday night.
