"if you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much room"

early spring?

The big news this morning is that fat rat in Pennsylvania did not see his shadow. That means there is only 4 more weeks of winter left. I'm not sure if I believe that but, growing up in the snow belt, you look forward to any kind of relief you can get! :-)

No problem with snow here. In fact the weather has been pretty darn nice. We suffered through a couple of days of gusty winds but that was nothing compared to the weather those of you further North were experiencing. We prepared for the wind by closing the awnings and putting away anything that could be blown around. We even put the slides in during the worst of the wind to protect the awnings attached to them. Our preparations paid off and we didn't have any damage and have since put the awnings back out to enjoy the shade and moderate temperatures.

Today marks the start of our 3rd week here. Last week was a little busier but the crews are still finishing their work by 6pm and the gate is usually very quite until they show up again at 7 the next morning. I can get used to this! :-)

I have had some interruptions a couple of nights to let vehicles in dropping off equipment but luckily they are in and out pretty quick.

We are enjoying our time here, not as much fun as traveling and exploring but my Dad always told me, "if your gonna dance you have to pay the fiddler". So we'll be here several more weeks making some $$'s and looking forward to our next dance. I'll keep you posted.


  1. I like the sound of the gate.
    We JUST missed the brunt of that storm. We sat on the eastern edge. Whew.
    Stay safe

  2. Glad your gate is treating you well! TM and I enjoy reading about gate guarding. Stay warm...
