The expected cold front arrived this morning with a bang. At midnight last night it was 75 degrees and then about 7:30 am the wind picked up and the temperature dropped to 57 degrees. A couple of people in the park who weren't prepared for south Texas winds lost their awnings to the gusts. There are probably more RV awning insurance claims than anything else in the industry. You just can't fly a couple hundred feet of canvas in a forty mile an hour wind and expect a good result. That said my flagpole flexed well with no apparent damage. Another side benefit of the flag flying over Mel's roof is that it keeps the nasty grackles, who used to love tap dance on the roof in the morning, far away.
This morning was spent in the laundry room because it is too chilly to declare tomorrow a clothing optional day. That chore completed it is now time to stay out of the wind as part of my plan to enjoy the good life.
