"16/#51 'Tis The Season No Matter Where Home Id

It is only nine days until Hanukkah and ten until Christmas and we are still here in Forsyth, Missouri. If you have been watching the weather you know that a real cold spell is headed our way. We are hoping that we stay just south of the front and that it doesn't last too long. We have added a few more deterrents to the cold. Underneath the trailer skirting we have a halogen light to heat our water filters and the attached hoses. It should also help with the cold coming through the floor of the slideout. We are from Florida, so we need all the help we can get to keep warm. Saturday we are expecting a high of 56 degrees during the day and overnight lows of 10 degrees! We won't see temperatures above freezing until sometime Monday! It is definitely feeling like Christmas.
 We have done some decorating for the holidays with most of it inside. Outside we have a wreath on the door and out front a small yard sign. Inside we have our flat Christmas tree, a little bit of garland, a couple of hanging ornaments, and a few more seasonal items we have picked up over the years. We also have our menorah out for Hanukkah.

People have been coming in to get their propane tanks filled. I expect it to get busier as the temperature drops. With ready access to propane I am making sure that we always have our tanks full. Along with several electric space heaters we hope to stay defrosted if not warm. Most RVs are not made for sustained cold weather, unless you consider the ability to move to warmer climates, HAHA!

Well that's all for now from our home in chilly Forsyth because.....

Home is where we park it,
