Snowbirds are too slow

We hit the road to get away from snow and ice but I guess we are moving a little too slow. We should have moved further south yesterday and now we are going to be hit with a brief snow and ice storm. It will be short lived but we are holding up here for another day or two. There is no way I am pulling this rig in inclement weather.

One hundred miles south and we would be dealing with rain only. Story of my life, woulda, shoulda, coulda!

I thought I was back in Arkansas last night. We made a Wal-Mart run and there was absolutely no loaf bread of any type and less than one dozen total of hotdog and hamburger buns, and milk was going fast.

Being retired from the milk business, I know all about the snow and ice storm effect. People that normally use one gallon of milk a week will buy at least two for a one or two day storm. It is the same way with bread.

We bought a loaf of soft sliced French bread from the deli that is very delicious. We normally buy wheat bread so it is a pleasant change for us.

We have developed a water leak when we turn on our 12 volt water pump. The fitting to the tank must have worked loose as it does not leak when hooked up to campground water. No biggie, just need a nicer day to tackle it.
