          your link shows the same average temp of days in the low 60's and nights in the low to mid 40's ....in years past we have seen periods of ice/snow or temps in the upper 70's to low 80's .... no clue how it will be this year

              My pet weather rock will know for sure on the day of the weather! Got the plants in the house, the light on in the pump shed and the heat tape warming my stand pipe on the water tank. Disconnected and drained the line where water goes up to my RV. Supposed to moderate slightly and get us up over freezing at night come tomorrow through the of the week so my missus plants can come out of the house.

                    only a little over 6 weeks until we are scheduled to pull out for Texas .... most of this week (Thanksgiving) was slated to be our last reasonably long test tow .... with the delays in replacing the camper's roof, no such trip will be taken .... because they are calling for some subfreezing temps while we will be gone, we have hooked our camper up to a large propane tank and test run the heater .... she fired right up so that went well .... tomorrow morning we plan to install insulation pillows in all 3 roof vents .... we have one more short tow scheduled for early December, hopefully that one will go off as planned .... after we get home from Thanksgiving, I plan to get serious about finishing water proofing the top of our living area slide ....

                      if all goes well, we are due to pull out 41 days from today .... with Thanksgiving over, the trip has become very real .... all reservations for our January drive from home to Texas have now been made along with all but one night on our way back home in April ... projected trip itinerary in Post 1 has been updated .... rain has once again delayed the completion of our camper's new roof install has been delayed but shouldn't present a problem

                        really nice day in the neighborhood but a rainy spell is on the way .... fired up my portable air compressor ( AKA our Freightliner Sportchassis ) and used it to bring the air pressure in our truck and camper tires up to 100 psi .... with the temp being 58 degrees, the pressure should serve us well while we are in Texas .... also aired up our daughter's camper tires to 85 psi .... to take care of another small issue, I removed the small compartment that holds our Pressure Pro Tire Monitor and rerouted some wires so as to remove them from view .... Maureen booked the pressure washer service we use to come and wash the truck and camper .... both are in serious need of it ....

                          as usual, the firmer our plans become, the faster they change .... our plan was to be camped right now on our club's last outing of 2018 .... predictions for an ice storm to move through Saturday and Sunday .... so, our camper has been unloaded and the slides are in .... with the weather forecast for a week from today we have booked a pressure washing service to come and take care of cleaning our camper and truck .... when I say they both need it, that is a pretty large understatement .... once she's cleaned, with the exception of loading clothing, food, etc ) we are pretty much ready to head to Texas
