Woke up this morning at 6:30 and it was 7 degrees outdoors. It was only supposed to be down to about 15 degrees.....the National Weather Service lied to me. I'm getting a bit discouraged with all of this....still no water. "Sammy Sunshine" (aka: Bruce) is just fine, planning to drive out this afternoon and get some propane refilled for the MH. His message to me this morning, "We're still warm."
Flashback to yesterday afternoon: We were getting the water going and thawing everything out around 4:00 pm. I got the washer started to wash the rags and towels we'd been using outside for all of this mess. Things were looking good and then I started to wash some dishes that had piled up. Turned on the faucet...nothing, nada. It was working a minute ago. I quickly called out the window to Bruce that the water stopped again. After inspection, we realized that it wasn't us this time.
Bruce walked over to where he saw Bill, the manager, working at the park laundry room. Seemed that the water pipes for the park had broken and he shut off all the water. I guess he was in a hurry to get the water main shut off and didn't have time to give a warning. OK....."UNCLE" I cried!
We packed up some things for dinner and went to our daughter's house to fix dinner and eat with them. We're getting ready to head back over there now for morning showers. This whole routine is getting pretty tiresome.
But "Sammy Sunshine" is still smiling and being cheerful. I guess that is a good thing.
Until next time......so long for now!
