Nasty Weather and A Trip To The Bank, Walgreen's And An RV Dealer

Virginia Beach, VA.

48 deg. overcast, light rain, NW wind @ 8 mph with 20 mph gusts.
Forecast = Today: Cloudy. A chance of rain or drizzle this morning...Then a slight chance of rain or drizzle early this afternoon. Breezy with highs in the upper 50s. North winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Chance of rain 30 percent.
Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 40s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph...Becoming west around 5 mph after midnight.

It's been windy and rainy, here the last few days, so outside activities have been limited. Yesterday, Jim and Linda took CLT (Cute Little Truck), and headed, first to the bank to take care of some business, then to Walgreen's to get prescriptions re-filled, (of course they didn't have everything in stock), and then to Snyder's RV to get some parts.

Parts???? What parts????  Well, I guess I forgot to mention that when Jim pulled Bobbie T into Joe's driveway, the back end of Bobbie T drug on the street. At first Jim just thought it was the hitch, but after further inspection, he determined that the light connector receptacle where the cord to CLT's lights plug in had drug and had been severely damaged. : O

Jim straightened out the bracket and was able to get the cord plugged into the outlet, but CLT's brake lights and turn signals won't work. : (  Now, Jim could have taken the receptacle apart and may have been able to repair it, but as beat up as it was, he decided that it was best to get a new one. Plus, that receptacle is mounted way too low and will just get damaged again if it's not moved to a different location.

Now, if this weather ever clears up, Jim can get busy out there and get the new one installed.

On the way back from Snyder's RV, Jim and Linda stopped by a Chili's Restaurant for sandwich  before coming back here.

The last few evenings have been spent visiting with Joe, Nancy and the girls. Our time here is getting short, (we leave Friday morning), so they're trying to spend as much time together as possible.

If the weather clears up today, I'm sure Jim will be working on that light connector. If not, it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Did you know that a camel can drink up to 30 gallons of water at one time?
