Got everything thawed and working by dumping boiling water on it slowly. If you use my method, be careful of burns. Only one fitting broke & replaced. Good excuse to go to Home Depot on Black Friday.     -crofter

Good morning... done with boondocking roadside for a while. I'm staying at a rental space with a nice shower available. This last week since the snowstorm has been difficult and cold with no heater. I will be able to get electricity here. A friend from church showed me this space after the community Thanksgiving dinner. My daughter is leaving Idaho today and should be here soon.

Wow! Great to have electricity and a hot shower, don't get too used to it though, you'll end up with a travel trailer and hookups. LOL!!! A van is so easy when you travel in warm areas but not so much when it is cold outside. Hope all goes well!

Cold in Seattle this week, below freezing at night. I got out my electric mattress pad because the cold has my arthritis flaring up in my joints. I am not crippled by arthritis, it just makes me slow, clumsy and achy in colder weather plus I don't sleep good with the mild aches and pains. It was good to wake up pain free with some flexibility back for working on projects. Yesterday I was all fumble fingers while trying to work on small stuff with my hands and I could hardly bend down to pick things up off the floor or low shelves. I needed more energy and more strength for finishing the build.

If I can find a parking space today I might stop in at the National Nordic Heritage Museum when I go out to run errands . It opened in a new building last year and I have not yet been for a visit. The gift shop is a fun visit at Christmas time with all of the small traditional Christmas Ornaments. They held a special Nordic themed craft sellers festival the other week.

Hello and good morning again... cold, but the big snow storm was mostly south of us. I need coffee.

RE: Good morning - B and C - 12-01-2019

Good morning. Fifty nine when I got up with clear skies. Glad the muggy (99% humidity) is gone. No rain yesterday either.

Have a great day everyone!

Well watching the snow totals for Flagstaff. They did manage to get Interstate 40 and 89A back open but will take a few days to get the secondary roads passable. Another storm is due Wednesday but we won't travel until later this month. Snow seems a little early this year but with the temps still getting above freezing during the day roads should clear up but may have to use that 4 wheel drive, just don't want to follow a snow plow like years past!

Morning is a state of mind. I went to a women's Bibble study this morning at the old log church.. then to senior lunch. Don't let anyone tell you there's no free lunch.. because I get them frequently. Yesterday I walked to the top of the snowbound hill to raid my cargo trailer which is currently parked there. I retrieved my propane heater and burner for heating water... forgot matches, but my buddy heater worked perfectly this morning. Happy me.

Be careful and make sure you have plenty of ventilation, wet shoes and clothes make for lots of condensation!

RE: Good morning - travelaround - 12-02-2019

Yes, plenty of ventilation, and a CO monitor... I'm watching it. I'm not a condensation fan either... but so tired of freezing in the mornings... so buddy heater it is. Eventually I'll get my electric heater down here... as I have a place to plug it in, but it was too heavy to carry down the snow covered hillside. Buddy heater was lighter and had a handle. Thanks for caring about my continued existence!!
