Well PHOOEY!

Just had to cancel our New Year's trip to the coast

Terrible weather is blowing through Texas the next couple days. Strong wind, cold, rain... So we decided to re-evaluate and re-group and ended up being able to re-schedule.

The cold doesn't bother me too much, nor does the rain, but that wind would NOT be fun towing conditions. And when you throw it in the pot with the cold and the rain, makes for miserable travel weather. I had thought we could beat the front down to the coast and just ride it out when we got there, but the forecast has changed, so no bueno!

Silver lining is we'll get to go to the "South Texas RV Super Sale" in San Antonio this weekend. And the RV Park was nice enough to not smack us with a $100 change fee.

Must be the same weather system that's hitting Arizona. We have friends that are snowbirding southwest of Phoenix and they're freezing their butts off.

Yep, I'm wintering over in the Ingram/Kerrville area and they are forecasting some freezing rain early Thursday.

I too had plans to take the trailer to Port Aransas for New Years Eve, scrapped it for now, we instead booked a hotel in Corpus Christi for the night. Maybe I'll bump into you at the RV show on the weekend

Eek, it's supposed to be pretty bad up in the Hill Country; freezing precip, accumulation, ice... The whole ball game... That's bad down here 'cause we are NOT equipped for that kind of weather.... If I'm you, I'm making sure the fridge and pantry are stocked and there are plenty of DVDs cued up, I wouldn't want to go anywhere in that mess.

Good luck, and stay warm!

Yeah, a Hotel is probably the way to go if you have to be out...

Maybe so. We should have someone come up with a ball cap or a "morale" patch or something so we can find each other at places other than campgrounds. That reminds me, I guess since I'm not going anywhere, I should order my JOF sticker...

...... and it's already started here in the Hill Country. We've had a constant 'drizzle' last night and throughout the day thus far, ice has been building up on some surfaces as well..., the TT's metal steps are glazed over.

Even the TV is seeing a little.......,

Seeing Kerrville on the news, looks bad through there on I-10. I guess I'm kind of glad we decided to call it off this weekend. Cuddling here on the couch with my infant son is just about the best way to spend the evening!
