Springtime in Wisconsin

One of the beauties of traveling full time in an RV is getting to experience springtime over and over again as we transition from south to north.  It's a bit like being in that movie, Groundhog Day.

When we arrived it was a balmy 78 degrees and I really felt we hit it right this time by not arriving too early.

Then the bottom dropped out and we woke to having no water because the hoses froze.  This was discovered unfortunately right after my morning toilette.

And the wind continues to blow at a sustained 25 mph and we watched the awning shimmy and shake and feeling the RV rocking.

But the worst part was enduring the sight of snow.  We are not returning to this area again until May 1st next year!

On the upside however, it does make for some very affectionate cats as they seek laps for warmth.

I guess it could be worse.

Since the weather is nasty we decided to head north to see the kids.  Maybe Minnesota is warmer.

Long Live the Ice Queen


  1. Oh my, so sorry about the cold weather. But that's a super photo of you and the fur kids. Our weather is a tad bit cooler too, but not wintery. 50's for days, and mid 30's for nights. Not so bad, but I'll be glad for the warmer temps to come back soon. Enjoy your visit with the kids. Have a wonderful weekend, hugs, Edna B.

  2. That is why we don't go home until mid-May! Gene's brother was born on May 12th during a doesn't happen every year but!!!!

  3. Silly you. But the kids will keep you warm. We have been hitting Rocky's Wednesday Burger special but inside. Burlington RR has dumped some questionable dusty rock by the tracks in Stoddard so I am not so sure we can sit out until the radiation is checked.

  4. That's a bummer about the water. Those cats are totally adorable and look so comfy there on your lap.

  5. I would love to see more of the quilt they are laying on! (BTW, they are beautiful.)
