Another reason it's good to be living in an RV

We came home to find a notice on our door that due to a break in the water main we would have no water the next day, and after that to boil the water until it was deemed healthy for use again.  No problem when you live in an RV to handle this.  We just filled our water tank and shut off the valve at the street.  This way we could use the pump to have fresh water for several days until we get the all clear.

A couple of days after this we came home to find the neighbors all standing in the street talking about the power outage.  Some of them were concerned about food in the fridge spoiling.  Not an issue with us as the fridge switches over to LP gas when the electricity is turned off.  If the outage continued any length of time we could just turn on the generator to generate electricity.

Then the winds came and we did not take down the awning.   But the RV shimmied and shook all night long, making for a restless night.  I thought we might end up further down the street from all the movement, but in the morning we were right where we started.

So, as you can see there are some distinct advantages to this way of life....with the exception of strong winds.  

Long Live the Queen


  1. I was thinking...just be careful when tornadoes are in the area. You just cannot beat them...or hurricanes.

  2. I agree with Mary Ann, your photos are wonderful. Even if we had a sunset like that, I could not see much of it from my house because of all the tall pines around me. I'd have to drive down the road a ways to enjoy it. Come to think of it, that's exactly what I do sometimes to get a good view of the moon.

    I'm so glad the winds did not carry your RV to another location. It can get tricky some times. Be safe, hugs, Edna B.
