Another cold night coming tonight, with below freezing temps for five or six hours. For those in southern Ontario, are you ready?

What happened to all that hot weather in March? (I guess we are paying for it now) Its cold here too, in the 30`s the last few nights. Highs in the 50`s today.

Lee,
I expect the temperatures here will be warmer again in a week or two. It's not unusual for us here to have a cold snap of several days below freezing overnights this time of year. We are still expecting a nicer camping season than last year.

Yeah, its supposed to be 80 here by Wednesday. When it starts to get hot, I suspect it will not play around.

KOA Cookstown

This is a very well run campground. It seems to be fairly new as there is not much shade, but that is ok for us. The sites we've stayed at are all flat. Depending on how far your slideout extends you may need to park over to the right of the drivethrough sites to avoid the power pedestal. The campground is located close to the RV centre as you said, the outlet mall and the 400 Market (open only on Saturday and Sunday). We stay here every year on our way from the North to Indian Line in Brampton.
One other thing I discovered this year, the spot originally assigned was not long enough to hold my suburban and 26 foot trailer so I had to move to a longer spot. I would definitely recommend it!

Incidentally, last night I dumped the tanks and disconnected the water before bedtime, just to be sure since it was calling for minus 3.

I see Environment Canada's data shows Vaughn (just south of Cookstown) went down to -3c last night. Here in Niagara Falls our gauge shows we went down to -1c again. The sun is now shining very bright though, so it will be a nice early spring day. Hope your water situation in Cookstown is better this morning!

Since I leave this morning I took no chances and dumped the tanks last night. My biggest surprise on this thermal package is that the tanks are insulated and heated when the furnace is on, but both dump valves and piping are exposed.
I took the water hose off last night and put it on again this morning. The tap had a bit of ice in it, it spit for about 30 seconds and then let go.
Everything OK!!
Thanks
Grant
