Woke up this morning with 17 degree temps. Sun came out but never got above 27 degrees. Well what a perfect day to fire up the grill…
I cooked the marinated chicken directly on the grill over hickory wood. Once it was done I cut it up in pieces and put in cast iron skillet with onions, and peppers. Served sizzling with rice, tortillas, and hot sauce. It was tasty with plenty of leftovers.
It’s been a cold and wet here for the last few days. Guess who had to work the last 2 days? Yep, we did. Yesterday started out about 32 degrees at 9am and slowly dropped during the day. Visibility was about 50 yards with fog and drizzle. By 1pm it had dropped to 26 degrees with some off and on sleet and a cold North wind. The moisture had made for some very pretty scenes with the pine trees looking like flocked Christmas trees. Sadly I didn’t get any pictures.
We had several travelers stop for the night because of the weather. The most popular item we sold was heated water hoses which the owners had ordered and received yesterday. We sold them all in a matter of a few hours. I assisted one camper with running a electric cord inside her RV so she could plug in an additional heater. Another college girl had a wheel on her truck freeze up and we had to move the truck out of the road where it was stuck. Yes, the weather made for an interesting day. When we left for the day it was 25 degrees.
Fast forward to this morning and it is now 35 degrees, the sun is trying to come out and things are starting to thaw out. Forecast high today is 53, tomorrow 65 and over 70 for Sunday. That sounds great!!
November 18 and 19th were this years date for Alpine’s Artwalk. This is a annual event that attracts thousands to town. Lots of art, a parade, live music, and more. We went with our friends from Marathon and had a great time. More about Artwalk HERE.
We now understand why so many people come to Alpine for Artwalk every year. It was great and had something for everyone.
We woke up to warm weather today with gusty winds. Friday night is forecast to a low around 32 degrees. So we might have our first freeze. We just had our motorhome hooked up to an external propane tank so we will have plenty of fuel for heating. Winter is not far off.
