Unusual Freezing Temperature Greeted Us in Texas

Aloha Everyone,

J.J. and I are trying to enjoy stress free RV adventures. One of the things which we find helpful is to drop all our expectations. And that certainly includes the weather. So when we started to see fresh powder snow on the mountain peaks and frozen grass lands, our reaction was to say, "Wow, this is going to be a totally new adventure for us."

J.J. and I had  a late lunch of Texas charcoal grilled hamburger with fries at K-Bob's Restaurant in town. The close-up of their signage shows icicles hanging from the rain gutter.

We checked in at Hilltop RV park in Fort Stockton about 2:00 PM local time. We are now in Central Time Zone which means  that we are 4 hours ahead of Hawaii and 2 hours ahead of California.

This popular RV park is full with guests. However due to the unusual freezing weather, no one is out socializing. We don't even see any pet owners walking their dogs.

It's 5:55 PM Central Time and the outside temperature is 22 degrees Fahrenheit. Inside Honu, it's 69 degrees. But just to feel extra warmth and comfort, J.J. brought out my "Lena's blanket" for me.

Aloha -- Cathi
