5/31/13 Friday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)
We had a couple storms last night, so our sleep was intermittent. Thus, between that and the time change, we slept in, again. This morning I thought of getting my 10 lb weights out. Boy am I ever out of shape. Time to make a point of some morning exercise, along with quiet time.
Since big wind gusts and thunderstorms are predicted for today, we decided to stay close to home. Therefore, John watched more Andy Griffith Shows and CSI shows while I worked on the blog and organized my photos on the computer. All day long. We did manage to get our awnings and slides pulled in preparing for the strong wind gusts and heavy storms. The wind was gusting, picking up, so it seemed a good idea to get our slides in now. Naturally, it didn’t go that smoothly. After setting the bedroom awning in, I started moving the bedroom slide in, remembering that I needed to pull the “water catcher” bucket out when we finished. BUT after it came a bit, I noticed something funny and John yelled “stop”. He wanted me to send it back out, so I did. It stopped suddenly – too soon I thought. I went to look and saw it had a foot or so to go, then realized that I’d left the “water catcher”. Yikes! It was stopping the bedroom slide, not allowing it to go out any further. I moved the slide a bit in, then tried to pull the “water catcher” out. Got it. Whew! That was close. Once I finished sending the slide all the way out, I went to John, to see what was wrong, if he needed my help. He did. The awning on one side had not been locked, so it was stuck while the other side was going out with the slide. He got it unlocked, then we put the awning back in place. This time sending the slide in (“water catcher” out this time), went smoothly. Close call. Each of us played a part in possibly creating a problem in that slide. On our toes now, we got the other slide (& it’s awnings) in just fine.
It was supposed to pour rain, with heavy wind gusts all day. It didn’t happen. Hmm. Supposed to get heavy rains over night, then all day tomorrow, so we’ll keep those slides in for safety.
With all our slides in, we continued as before: John watching old TV shows (I think he’s testing the new TV to see if it will go black if it works too long) and I organizing photos on the hard drive.
To continue our lazy theme, supper was leftover pork roast with gravy and beans. Watched taped TV shows for our evening. Wonder if we’ll get that bad weather overnight?
