Severe Winter Weather

Aloha Everyone,

At 7:00 am this morning, J.J. and I were warm and comfortable in Honu, but the outside temperature had dropped to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. To protect our water tank from freezing then bursting, Honu's system automatically dumps the water.  

J.J. decided to keep the tank empty and stay one more night before we get back on the road.

The low pressure system along the Atlantic coast onto the northeast towards Nova Scotia is causing severe winter weather. A large swath of snow spreading with blizzard conditions is a good reason for motorists to stay off the highways.   

The two of us have also been following the news about the major storm off the Pacific coast that is starting to make landfall. It may cause heavy precipitation and potential landslides.

Bob and Carol are from Ontario, Canada. Bob, a retired history teacher of 30 years, were on their way to Tucson.

A gorgeous sunset is a joy to behold at the end of a nice day. At an elevation of 4,500 ft, the temperature is again expected to go below 30.

Aloha -- Cathi
