Out of Storage? NOT!

Well, it is snowing again! I called the guy who is storing my TT for the winter in his barn, to see about getting it this weekend. Well thatís not going to happen! He stated he still has over 4 feet of snow in his area. He is located about 100 miles north of here. He stated he is planning start digging out this weekend as the boaters are also wanting their boats as fishing opener is Motherís Day weekend.

Guess that means you won't be going for a ride in your Model T real soon, either.

Here in central PA the snow is gone but the cold weather will just not go away. Spent the last weekend at the RV and on Sunday morning awoke to 22 degrees. Glad I disconnected the water and shut it off to the RV. Ran the heat and used the electric heater for backup. No reading the paper on the patio that morning.

Actually I had the T out on Saturday. I had to move it out of its winter home, but that garage had been shoveled all winter. I drove it about 20 miles through the wet sloppy roads. Actually it went out twice; the second run was to the ice cream parlor.

Yeah, it's been rough. I got ours out of storage and dewinterized and then blew out all the lines again because it was going to get cold. We have not had the snow like you guys, but this Spring has been bitter cold. First trip this weekend and there is some decent weather in the forecast.

Well, we got the TT out of storage this weekend! It was an experience I tell you.

We decided we would visit my parents anyways, the TT is not far from their place. On the way up I get a call that the TT is ready for pickup. Problem was I did not bring my keys as we were told there was to much snow and we would not be able to get it this past weekend. I throughout my back Saturday morning, my Dad’s back is out too. So my wife had to come to put the hitch on the TV. BUT we had no keys and the hitch was in the TT. So our young son had to come. We borrowed a set of CH751 keys from my parents. Jake had to crawl into the TT through a cargo hold hatch to open the passage door, so we could get the hitch. He absolutely enjoyed coming to the rescue.

Well the TT is home and now we just need to get it cleaned up and ready for our first trip out.

My daughter attends university in North Dakota and they have been under flood warning since Saturday. We are leaving next Friday for her graduation. It is much nicer on the west coast here we have been able to camp twice so far. I hope we don't get flooded out while we are there. Hopefully all that snow melts slowly so the flooding keeps to a minimum

My parents live on the Mississippi river. The Mississippi is flowing nicely this year, I have seen it in much worse conditions most years. Here in the twin cities it is not bad. I have a number of relatives in the Fargo/Grand Forks area that gets affected by the Red every year. I have not been following the Red River closely this year. The major problem with the Red River which most people are not aware of, it flows south to north (that is correct). Well it has been so cold to the north that the river ice has not broke loose and the ice creates ice dams and backs up.

Does sound like they have lowered the Flood crest.
