Another Cold Windy Day

IMG_3783The title says it all! Although the snow had stopped coming down, yesterday it was coming sideways! We could actually see the wind blowing as it was picking up lots of snow and blowing it along.


So once again, we bundled up and headed out to get our little area cleaned up.



Thanks to those commenters who mentioned clearing off the slide toppers. We had planned to get them cleaned up before we were ready to head out, but the comments inspired Harry to get up there sooner rather than later.



They were pretty weighed down with snow and some ice from the melting snow.

It took Harry probably 45 minutes to an hour to get them all cleaned off.





It was so nice to see them pop back up as soon as the snow was all pushed off.





While Harry was doing that, I was shoveling around the vehicles and getting our walkways clear.




This is a sight I hope not to see too often in the future!

Fourteen days left until we head south!


  1. Glad you got your toppers cleared off. Dave cleared our roof and toppers yesterday, too. It sure was windy here, too! Snow blowing all over the place!

  2. Happy New Year to you both!!! Sunny weather and warmer temperatures are in your future!!

  3. Wishing you safe travels and sunny days for 2013.

  4. Happy New Year and safe travels to warmer temperatures!

  5. 2 more weeks -- that will blow by quickly. Bet ya'll can't wait! Brrrr snow...brrrr

  6. Just think how much more you will enjoy the warmer weather as you make your way down south! Having full-timed in the nastiest weather will make the pleasant weather that much more precious! LG

  7. You have snow in N.Y. and we are in California and it is cold! We are so ready to head to the desert of Arizona!

  8. Hello, I am the owner of Gypsies in a Caravan Blog and just found you. Congrats on the sale of the sticks and bricks, retirerment and hitting the road. Reading your blog brought back memories. We have been on the road for 1.5 years and haven't looked back! Best wishes for a FAB New Year and safe travels.
