As forecast today’s weather was a repeat of yesterday. It was dry and warm with very little wind. The temperature peaked right around eighty.
Similar to the weather my day was a repeat of yesterday too. It was a living in an RV kind of day. I didn’t do any traveling or touring, just some of life’s tasks. The only thing that made today different was a trip for groceries and gas. Less than a mile down the road is a Walmart with a full complement of groceries and a gas station. It is refereed to as a Super Center, but it really doesn’t have the floor space to have all the characteristics of other Walmart Super Centers. The variety of products to select from was compromised.
I filled my gas tank at $2.25 a gallon. That’s about thirty five cents higher than I paid at the beginning of January. A few cents of the difference is probably tax difference based on the county, but the rest is the cost of gas. It is still not a bad price, but if the twenty to thirty cent per month increases continues it won’t be long before the price is back to what I was experiencing two years ago. When you factor in regional variations I suspect it will be even higher out west.
Today was mowing day at the campground. A very loud and big lawn mower was used to cut the grass on each of the sites. I think they were using it more to vacuum up the leaves than to cut the already short grass. Many of the trees are dropping one set of leaves to get a start on the 2019 crop and the pine trees are starting to spread a fine yellow coat of pollen on everything. If their lawn mower vacuumed up the pollen it would be worth the noise pollution.
