8/22/2013 It’s Hot in the Desert in August!

(Arizona City, AZ)

Whoo boy is it ever hot here!  By morning the house was cooled down to 82 which is downright comfortable compared to the 110 degrees under our carport or the 115 out in the sun.

I pulled the rest of the dust covers off furniture we hadn’t used yet and made a grocery list to get us through the next week that we’ll be here.

While I was doing that Bob took a ride over to the storage facility to check on our 5th wheel and when he came back he said he was glad that he had put the  jack stands under the frame because sure enough the hydraulic system failed, yet again, while we were in Delaware.  The 5th wheel was resting on them in the front.  Other than that everything looked good.

We made a trip into town so I could go to the grocery store and Bob could pick up a few things he needed from Lowe’s.

We’ve got a busy week ahead of us since the park model has to be ready for our friends to come stay in it in December.  While we certainly don’t want to be in Indiana much past mid October, and preferably out of there by the beginning of October, well, you just never know.  I mean, who ever thought we would be in Lazy Days Tucson for 97 days!

It is our hope that we’ll get in and get out of the factory in a short amount of time because we have several things we’d like to get done to the park model before the season starts.  Of course to do this we have to be here.

Neither one of us is looking forward to this trip to Indiana.  It’s a long way to go for what hopefully will be a short time and then turn around and come back.  It has to be done, we don’t have a choice.

After our errands we just hung around inside rest if the afternoon.  It’s even too hot to go to the pool!
