I'm sure happy we're living in the motorhome.
We seem to be in the midst of a pretty violent windstorm. The power went out last night and as of 9pm, is still not happening. I can hear the wind whistling, the trees groaning and the debris scuttering along the ground.
But here in the rig, we're snug and warm.
How well I remember when we were living in the big house, what a pain it was when the power went out. We still had heat, but no lights, no computer, no internet. Scrambling for batteries, tripping over my messes.
Now, here in the rig, it's really not that much of a bother.
That said, I find the wind and its' accompanying noise bothersome. Makes me wish I wasn't under all these trees!
I always think back to when we were first in New Mexico and I got a taste of what a real windstorm was like . . .
You can read about it here.
Wow, reading that, I seemed to be so much more in touch with everything when we were on the road. Now I seem more numb to my surroundings. Just reading that post makes me itch to leave this place.
Snap out of it!
There is one good thing I'm noticing during this storm. Since we've switched our lights over to LEDs, we use hardly any power at all. We've used all the lights we wanted, both last night and throughout the day into this evening and still, the batteries read 94% . Not bad at all. While it was expensive, it sure seems worth it at times like this.
We still have the stock fluorescents that Lazy Daze installed at the build, but one of these days I'll get around to changing those too. For now though, all our tiny fixtures have been switched to LEDs. I love that they burn so cool, the halogens were so hot, I was always worried about heat build up.
I'm reading this and I guess it's kind of indicative of my state of mind.
Wandering, scattered, wistful and ready to leave.
Still, I look across the rig and see my sweet mans face and know that everything is all right.
I'm going to hit "publish" before I ramble even more.
