Rain and Hail

Sunday was supposed to be a day to load up things for Goodwill and trash, but the weather didn’t cooperate.

We have been having some crummy weather due to approaching cold fronts.  This is what I hate about living in this area.  In the spring, the cold fronts coming from the northwest meet up with the warm air from the Gulf of Mexico and we end up with nasty weather.  We thought we had waited long enough to come back, but apparently not.

We had some pretty good size hail and it was sure loud hitting the motor home roof.  I get real nervous during storms, so it’s not a good thing.  That is one thing that concerns me about living in a motor home.  With the kitties, we can’t just spend the day at a mall or a movie theater.  The weather channel had mentioned some area getting hit with grapefruit size hail!  Can you believe that?  I hope they don’t mean those big old grapefruits like we have in Florida!

They are forecasting some spotty rain showers all day today, but hopefully we will still be able to make a trip to Goodwill.  We just need to get rid of some stuff, just to be able to see some progress.

Thanks for all your suggestions concerning how to attract garage sale people and also about alternate locations for our sales.  I will definitely put it on Craig's List this week and I also found a Garage Sale website.  As far as other locations, we could use a storage shed like we did before, but we really need to conserve our energy and having them come here is better.  Part of the problem last week, is we just had too much to do last week when we got back home and didn’t quite get everything done.

We bought more garage sale signs and will plaster this town with them before our next sale.  Hopefully, it’ll be better next week-end.


  1. We have been having that same awful weather here. I am like you....hate it. I never like bad weather in the MH either...especially high winds.

    Hopefully today the showers will be sparse. Good luck with the purging.

  2. Almost record cold here in Nova Scotia. Woke up to the sound of a snow plow at 6:15am this morning!

  3. try and have a good and productive week!..hope the weather improves!! out for the falling 'grapefruit'!!

  4. Just to make you feel a little better...we are having a little rain in Florida this week. Still in the 70's and 80's though, and no hail.

  5. It seems all the sounds of nature are magnified in a motorhome.

    Good luck next weekend.

  6. Sure am hoping your weather improves for your next garage sale and that it is a huge success.

  7. We are finally seeing some SUNSHINE here! It will be in the 70's but Thursday and that will give me a couple of days to load the truck for the Flea Market.

  8. Grapefruit size hail? That could do some real damage to a lot of RV's - yikes!

  9. Have you thought about an Estate Sale? It's another option with not much work for you. That is what I'm going to do. I don't know if you have them available where you live, but here in San Diego there are companies that sell your stuff right at your home.

    Go to this link, it's a blog post I wrote in February after I visited an Estate Sale in my neighborhood. It explains it all:

    I'm calling the man tomorrow to come out and talk about scheduling mine. It's kind of a long post, go down toward the end for the sale info. :)
