I got an email yesterday from a couple who are currently stuck in Wisconsin dealing with a family medical issue that may keep them there most of the winter. They said that while their RV is supposed to be an “all seasons” rig, they are finding it is far from adequate in the situation they […]

You Have Been Warned!

High winds and very cold temperatures across the southwest made for a miserable day yesterday. When I went outside to dump our holding tanks in the afternoon, I would have sworn I was in the Arctic, not Arizona. If this crap keeps up much longer, I’m going to launch into an epic sniveling fit that […]

I had no idea that writing about how cold it was here in Apache Junction in yesterday’s blog would lead to a financial opportunity, but as it turns out, it has. People in Arizona are taking up a collection to pay me to get the hell out of the state, while the people in Florida […]

Enough Already!

Okay, I’ve tried to be nice about it and just snivel and whine, but that hasn’t helped. The warmest it got was 50° yesterday, and it got down into the 20s last night here in Apache Junction. Just like it did the night before, and just like it’s supposed to do tonight. If I see […]

It’s cold here in Arizona’s White Mountains. Damn cold! The high yesterday was only 57 degrees, and it got down to 35 last night! But that wasn’t as bad as today, when the high is only predicted to be 46, with a low of 29 and rain/snow. And did I mention the strong winds? The […]

One Night’s Sleep

Just one night’s sleep. That’s all I ask for. I think if I could get a solid six to eight hours of sleep I’d feel a whole lot better. The last two nights I’ve been up and down all night long, coughing and sneezing. I may drink a quart of Nyquil before I go to […]

Congratulations to Sharon Ortloff, winner of this week’s free drawing for an audiobook of Explanations and Advice for the Tech Illiterate by Randall Morris! We had 167 entries this week, and next week’s winner could be you! So stay tuned, another contest starts soon. It got down to 40 degrees here in Tucson last night […]

Watching the news of the terrible winter storms and frigid temperatures that so much of the country is experiencing sure makes me grateful that we have wheels under our house and don’t have to deal with any of that. I almost felt guilty for wearing a long sleeve shirt when we went out yesterday, and […]

Three Dog Night

Last night was definitely a three dog night here in Apache Junction, with the wind blowing and the temperature dropping down to 33º. It was so cold that I was tempted to call my pal Chris Yust and see if I could borrow a couple of her poodles to keep my feet warm. But please […]

It’s Done!

It was so cold yesterday that we never poked our noses outside all day long, and even inside with the heat pump and an electric space heater on, I was still chilly in my sweats and comfy Teepee Creeper slippers. Overnight temperatures were down below freezing and made that routine trip to the potty just […]
