time to go!

Rudee and I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!

This week end the weatherman started saying words like "change" and "more seasonable" during his forecasts. Now in Indiana "change" is usually not a good thing when referring to the weather and "seasonable" for December is absolutely not a good thing! :-)
Today they confirmed a major winter storm is moving in and headed right at us. The snow is supposed to start early Wednesday and could be "significant" according to our local TV stations. They have even mentioned the "B" word a time or two. :-o
Since we are not gluttons for punishment, and we sure don't want to experience another blizzard, we have decided to pack up this traveling circus and move to greener pastures so we can avoid all this white "stuff"!

We will be celebrating Christmas at our daughter and son in laws house tomorrow morning and then get on the road shortly after noon. Our plan right now is to drive several hours before stopping for the night in a Wal Mart or rest park. We are heading towards the Escapees Park in Summerdale, Alabama and we hope to arrive there sometime Wednesday.  I'll keep you posted.


  1. Sounds like a good plan. We're in San Antonio and the weather has been very nice. (A few cold nights, but nothing we couldn't handle with an extra blanket and a space heater.)

    Happy holidays!

  2. Merry Christmas Phil, Rudee and your family. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. I hope that you haven't been affected by the tornados and remain safe. I too like Susan , am in TX with freezing temps over night. Just have to dress in layers and turn on the fireplace in the living room and little electric heater in the bedroom to stay comfortable. Tommorrow I have to work a bit outside for a little while preparing for the Chili Cook Off this coming weekend. Hope that you stay safe, warm and dry and have a Happy New Year!
