Thunder, lightening, and a tornado warning on the evening before Xmas eve. Definitely, weird weather with a projected high of 75 on Saturday!!!
Adrian, wow, that is some snow! We had a "bad" winter last year, but this year is even milder than usual. Looks like you are working hard to keep a path open for your trailer!
Tom, new Casita in March, NICE! Hey, if you have the Casita delivered, you and your DW can do the maiden voyage! 36 years at a large community college AND Dean of Humanities AND Dean of Students. Wow, you deserved your retirement!!! My doctorate is in student personnel services with a concentration in higher education. During my doctoral work, I spent three years working in residence life as a way to pay for my doctoral studies. Fun, but challenging work. However, once I finished my doctorate, I have been in a faculty role since 1990 and an administrator (program director or department head since 2003 or interim regional chancellor). I have an MSW and have been a social work faculty member since. Department Head is my primary assignment. The goal is to step down in four years when our younger daughter graduates from college. I will then spend the last five years as a 9 month faculty member which will give me much more time for camping and traveling. I am currently on 12 month appointment and after 20 years, I get 5 weeks of vacation a year, but it is hard to find time to take that much vacation. Hmm, something is just wrong about that previous sentence!
In any case, our new to us Casita is our empty nest plan. Thought it would be fun to travel and camp without the major financial commitment of a motorhome that would sit around too much the next few years.
Roger Dat, thank you for your comment. It makes a lot of sense. I am sometimes guilty of "planning" to do "unplanned" things. I can be a little OCD!!! Note to self - careful emptying water accumulated on the awning

Redbarron55 - GREAT job with the dirt!!!
JvR, you sound quite resilient! And, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you and all!!
