Groceries and Linda Misses Her Machine

Rantoul, IL.

62 deg. cloudy, light rain, no wind.
Forecast = High temp. 77 deg. Partly cloudy, 40% chance of showers this afternoon. NW winds switching to SW @ 3 to 5 mph.

Monday was grocery day and yesterday was laundry day. There weren't a whole lot of groceries needed, but boy, did they ever have a lot of laundry to be washed! In fact, they had so much laundry that I was surprised that they still had clothes to wear!!! ; )

Again, they went to the new laundromat in town. The machines are larger than the ones here at the CG, they have plenty of them so that you can do all your loads at one time without having to wait for a machine, and  the dryers are huge, so you can dry everything in one or 2 loads.

I think that not having a washer/dryer in the MH is one of the things about downsizing RVs that Linda misses the most. With the large RVs, Linda would just throw in some clothes whenever there was enough for a load, continue with whatever she was doing, and then when it was done, hang it right up in the closet or put it away in the drawers. Now, they wait until they're running out of clothes, have to bag it up to take it to the laundry, spend anywhere for 1 to 2 hours at the laundry, bring it back and then have to hang it all up and put it away, which takes anywhere from another 1/2 to full hour, depending on what they have.

It's raining quite hard right now, so I don't know what will get done today. Rantoul is supposed to have their fireworks display tonight, but the weather really doesn't look like it's going to co-operate.   : (

Today is also the day when most of the RVs are scheduled to be coming into the park for the 4th of July  holiday weekend. I'm sure glad that we don't have to travel someplace and then set up in the rain. : (

Did you know that July 4th was not a federal legal holiday until 1941?
