A different kind of weather got in the way of today’s plans. I woke up this morning to fairly dense fog. The TV news was reporting traffic visibility issues along the roads in a fairly narrow area of the state. To the south of here it was sunny and warm and to the north it was cool and rainy. This area was warm and foggy. The temperature was in the low to mid seventies.
During the morning the fog attempted to lift. At one point I looked out the window and the fog appeared to be high in the trees, but a few minutes later it was back near the ground. By early afternoon the fog was more like very low clouds. It was possible to get out for a walk and stay dry.
The weekend atmosphere has returned to the state park. Weekend campers and RVers are out to pack a lot into a couple of days and to burn off a lot of energy in a short period of time. The result is a lot of spirited conversations and competitions. On my afternoon walk I got to watch a couple of guys engaged in both activities. They were having a kayak race on the river along with lots of trash talking and an element of bumper cars thrown in for good measure. It was a fun impromptu entertainment and nobody ended up in the water.
Most of my day was spent doing chores around my RV home. The main task was a bit over due. During my first four years in the RV I managed to keep the inside of my refrigerator free of lost food. This past year I seemed to accumulate many containers of leftovers and a few unused packaged foods in the back of the refrigerator. I’m going to blame it on the pandemic and keeping lots of food on hand. Either way, it is now all gone. I threw out a whole trash bag full of stuff most of which was no longer identifiable. Let’s see how long I keep the refer free of unwanted stuff.
