Zephyrhills, Florida (high 73, low 39)
The storm line that caused all the tornados in the south and midwest, moved down to us here in central Florida last night. It brought some gusty winds and a brief period of pretty hard rain, but nothing severe. Many people didn’t even bring in their awnings.
This morning the sun is shining, but it’s still pretty windy. I guess I can quit whining about it being too hot….and start whining that it is too cold. Down to 39 tonight….brrrrr. Last night’s low temperature was 77! That’s quite a drop.
The community yard sale yesterday was pretty successful. We sold most of the stuff we had by 10:30. Some of the rest will go to charity and a few other things (like the 30 amp surge protector) will go on Craigs List. Some things are worth putting on Craigs List and some things are best sent to Good Will.
I kept Al busy with our sale, and he didn’t get to hunt for any bargains!
Al has a wild hair that we need a new truck. Our little Nissan Frontier works really well as our Toad, but it has 135,000 miles on it. I’m wanting to drive it another year or so. He’s afraid something expensive will go wrong and we’ll have to have it fixed before we can sell it. Right now we have it and the Honda CrV that we could use as trade-ins. We have it all set up for towing, plus we have the little topper on the back, and the kayak racks. I really don’t relish the thought of doing that all over again. Not only is it time consuming, but it can be expensive. I’m trying to keep him away from the car dealers, but he tricked me yesterday and pulled into a Nissan dealer. Fortunately, they didn’t have the truck we’re looking for!
My picture of the day was taken from Sunshine Key, watching the sun rise. Less than 3 weeks until we’re on our way. God willing!
