Oh My Goodness it's COLD!!!!

I know that I complained about the cold a couple of days ago - I had no idea what cold was - it was 14 degrees here this morning. Dan forgot to unhook the water from the spigot so, we have no water this morning. We are still waiting for it to warm up enough for the water hose to unfreeze. IF we can get it unfrozen Dan says that he will make sure to unhook everything tonight because it is suppose to be just as cold if not colder tomorrow morning. I know that the whole country is in a deep freeze but come on - this is not good! Dan said this morning, if we were somewhere else he would say lets go to Florida - won't work right now. So instead we are saying lets go the Caribbean (which we will do next weekend!).

Speaking of the Caribbean - I don't think I have looked forward to a cruise so much as this one - not because of the cold but just getting away (I know that sounds strange - we get "away" all the time), but there is something different about going on a ship and sailing away. I don't think that we are going to do any type of excursions on the cruise this year - we will just get off the ship and see what is available on the dock - now, don't worry. We won't do ANYTHING in the Dominican Republic - I just don't feel safe going off there. I'm sure it is safe, but I just don't want to take any unnecessary risks. When we get to Saint Thomas and Tortola we will go into town and just walk around and see what we can see. I will definitely take my good camera with us and try and get some great pictures. Last year, when we went on the cruise, we only ending up doing one excursion, that was the one to the Mayan Ruins which was fantastic. We also tried the whale watching - which I told you about before - not going to do that again. We'll see - I just have to post pictures when we get back.

I don't think we are going into Valdosta today - probably tomorrow. Dan did go have his blood work done this morning - I'm not sure when we will get the results, but until we do - we will keep him on his low-fat diet. We are even saying that when he is "all well" we are going to try and stay on the low-fat diet. It has got to be better for us, plus, Dan is continuing to lose weight. Just not at the rate he lost while in the hospital - but it will do him good to lose a few pounds (it will do me good to lose a few pounds too!).

Well, I don't really have much else to report - I hope you all are staying warm! So, until then -

I'll talk to you tomorrow!


  1. An alternative to unhooking the hose is to turn on a faucet to a tiny trickle or medium drip. If you pick the faucet furthest away from the hose end of the unit you can be pretty sure that everything will run OK in the morning. . .

  2. thanks Bruce - we had thought of that but Dan didn't want to take the chance of the sewer hose freezing. I guess we could just unhook from the sewer, but isn't just as easy to unhook the water hose? The weather here is just wicked!

  3. We're at the cabin and it hasn't gotten above 25 for 3 or 4 days. Has snowed almost daily and more is predicted for tomorrow with even lower temps through the weekend. Hope we can get out and over the pass by Sunday. So very glad Dan is getting well again. We care!
