Yesterday was another very cold day in Tampa. The wind had died down quite a bit but not all the way, so it stayed cool all day due to the temperature and wind combo.
We stayed warm overnight running the furnace, but in doing so we are sucking up our very expensive propane! We can stay warm under the electric blanket, but the kitties get cold so we keep some heat on for them. Yes, I know they have fur coats, but remember, they are Florida kitties! I've done some looking for other heaters, but I don't know what to use. I'm paranoid about space heaters and propane is expensive. The furnace is wasteful with so much heat being vented outside. We saw some Olympic heaters at Camping World yesterday, but they were in boxes so I didn't get to look at them. One was fairly small in size, so that would be the best. I need to do some more research I guess.
We got up early and walked over to the clubhouse for a newspaper and then out around the golf course. We wanted to get some pictures of the local deer that hang around the course.
Here is our campsite
We walked around the edge of the golf course and found some green grass that hadn't been damaged by cold. It was very pretty with the palm trees in the background.
We found the deer. They were definitely watching me! I thought I counted 6 of them, but once I looked at the picture, I only counted five.
The laundry/library area is right behind the rec center area. It looks pretty nice. There are restrooms next door to that but we didn't go inside. I'm not sure if they are just bathrooms, or if there are showers there as well. This used to be a campground, but now mostly is a snowbird mobile home park, so there may not be shower facilities. That doesn't bother me because I always use our shower.
Al got some of his pest control accounts done and we made a quick stop at Camping World and Sam's club. We also got some Christmas gifts mailed and I spend the rest of the day with Mom.
Today will be more of the same. Nothing fun or exciting going on here. It's only supposed to get to 55 here today, but 75 by Friday and no more freezing temps for a while.
We're also having trouble with out door lock. It seems the colder it is, the harder it is to unlock. That's one more project for Al.
