Friday - Saturday December 21-22, 2012
The weather people got this one right. The past 2 days have been unseasonably cold for south Florida with highs in the day time of 60 and overnight of mid 40's. Friday morning it rained until around 7 am which wasn't too bad. The other issue was the winds. The wind was out of the North West which was causing the cold. The sun was out just like normal south Florida but with a real cold wind. These 2 days were not good for sitting at the pool! However we did go to the hot tub on Friday night for a while which was very nice with the cold wind blowing.
Just want to add that the electric fireplace is one of the best ideas the RV manufactures have come up with. We put the fireplace on just before we go to bed and in the morning it has been 65 inside with 45 outside. That is perfect and we didn't use any propane!
With the cold weather we decided to go shopping for the RV stuff we needed and get ingredients for a cold weather soup. The closest RV parts store (K&K on Sterling) is about 10 miles away but still in Davie FL. We were able to get the dirt tie down stake I needed to install the awning tie downs. We also got the donut sewer connection we needed and a good thing as the tanks are now full and need to be dumped!
On the way back from the RV parts store we stopped at a Publix to get the ingredients for a crab chowder. Before we left Patty called her mom in NY for the recipe. Her mom had told us about the soup when we were in Buffalo last week.
I finished the tie downs with one side connected to the concrete and the other in the grass. The concrete hole was already made by someone else so I didn't need to drill any concrete holes! The job came out much better than I thought it would. It was still windy and the awning didn't move at all. I went and got Patty so she could pat me on the back for my good work!
