We're Moving and Freezing Temperatures

DeBary, FL.

29 Deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast today =  Sunny. Highs around 54°F. North northwest wind to 9 MPH.
Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows around 41°F. Northeast wind to 6 MPH.

Yep! We're moving!!!

I guess I knew it was going to happen pretty soon, and, I suppose it needed to happen before we headed out on our summer travels, but I think I'm going to miss being a South Dakotan.

A one point, last fall, Jim and Linda were still undecided if we wanted to become Florida residents or not, but then Alternative Resources, (Their mail forwarding service since 2001), was sold and became Dakota Post. Furthermore, Dakota Post is moving into a new facility, so that address is changing.

Now, if they would have stayed at their previous address, I really think that Jim and Linda would have stayed with them and kept on using their mail service for at least a couple more years. But, they didn't and so that meant that Jim and Linda would have to change their address with everyone even if they stayed South Dakota residents.

Being that we now have the double-wide down here in Florida, it seemed kind of silly to change addresses in S.D. and then in a few years change again to FL.

So,  ,   ,  ,  ,  , during the last week or so, they have started to notify businesses, friends and relatives that we are changing to the DeBary address. Then, one of these days, they'll head over to the DMV and get new drivers licenses and make it official. Because we had the double-wide down here, Jim registered Big RED and Nora in Florida when he and Linda bought them, so they're already Florida residents.

When we travel, Jim and Linda have decided to use St. Brendan's Isle Mail Forwarding Services, up in Green Cove Springs, FL for their mail forwarding service. Their service is kind of neat in that you don't have an annual fee, and as part time RVers, we can take advantage of their "Inactive Status" feature, where they will just suspend your service when you don't need it and then re-activate it again when you start traveling. This is at no extra charge and they don't charge anything while you're inactive.

They've been in the mail forwarding business since 1988, so they're well established.

Nothing much else to report except that the weather down here in Florida has been really cold the last few days. As I'm writing this at about 6:00 AM, Jim 's thermometer with the outside remote is saying that it's 29 degrees out there!!!!

Brrrrr!!!!!!!! We're not supposed to have these freezing temperatures in Central Florida!!!!!

One nice thing about Florida weather though is that it doesn't stay cold for very long. On TV their forecasting temperatures up near 80 degrees by Sunday. :-)

Other than Jim going over to the park where Nora is parked to disconnect the water hose and make sure everything was OK for the cold temperatures, he and Linda haven't gone anyplace or done anything. It's supposed to be a little warmer today with not as much wind, so maybe they'll go out to eat or something today.

Did you know that Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon with his left foot first?
