Northern Virginia was warming up the last few days I was hanging my hat there. Got into the 80’s one day, but generally stayed in the 70’s. The trees that were bare, no buds, nothing when I arrived, were budding out when I left. Grass that was scrimpy at best on arrival, needed to be mowed. And so it goes… I’m bringing Spring northward…
The tree above was one of several in a shopping mall near Winchester, Virginia. I couldn’t get a good shot of all the trees, so just posted this one. Winchester is a medium size city with a small town flavor. I loved the history, the small, narrow streets.. lots going on and I can see why my cousins chose this as there home. Its too busy for me… the traffic never goes to bed, if you know what I mean, but northern Virginia is on rolling hills of beauty.
So the following pictures are at the KOA in Jonestown, Pennsylvania. Just the name Jonestown invokes a memory I prefer not to remember… but I am here, so will make the best of it.
|My Lazy Daze|
Directly behind my rig and to the left in the picture is the highway. Could they get me a little closer? It was a hot weekend (88ºF) and all the motorcycles were out in force on this highway. Got the impression this was there first warm day since last summer.
|Looking into the RV park|
No option given for me to park back in here.
|KOA Office, Diner, etc|
|Bridge over little river or a big creek|
Was surprised to see that I was real close to right edge of this bridge. Lots of folks walking behind my rig with fishing poles, etc. Had a option to park next to the creek/river, but it would have cost me more, so they stuck me next to the road instead at $44/night and no weekly rate.
OK grumpy’s are gone now, it is what it is and I will just deal with it. As I do with everything else. All is well.
I got to get the rig ready for the drop in temperatures tonight. Snow is coming in! Sigh… It has been too warm to close up until now. Been raining since the wee hours… no thunder tho. Winds just picked up and is really rocking the RV. Ok, got the vents closed. Got the Reflectix up on the door, got the Reflectix out to put in kitchen window after I finish this blog. Need to put the blanket up to block the cab, finish my dishes, insulated my one and only plant. And just remembered I had tossed the reflectix for the bathroom window… darn. Will jerry-rig something for that. Doubt I will need the rest of my winter prep… its not going to be cold for long.
I know, I know…but after all these 80+ temps, I’m looking forward to having some cooler weather coming in. Laughing here.
