Severe weather possible today, but not to bad so far.

Where are we today ?

     Very warm again last night but with the A/C on for a bit, then the windows open, fantastic vent going we had a very nice comfortable sleep.
      Got a few very nice walkabouts this morning enjoying this nice comfortable weather in the mid 70's f. This is a pretty nice campground we have been to a few times before. This time it is a CTC membership full hookups $10 a night with 30 amp , and extra if you need 50 amp and we managed to get some very good free wifi as well.
lots of nice rental cabins by the lake here
that huge bass I showed you last night came from this lake 
     This week here the kids are in spring break so quite a few around having a wonderful time here , pretty quiet and all very friendly. We have found over the years , different areas, states and counties  have spring break at different times so ya never know when it will be in your area. Best to check if you need to make plans in March.
they all having fun here
        No where we needed to go and nothing we needed to see in this area right now. The weather gods tell us we having some severe thunderstorms  today. Now this is what is known as tornado alley so not unexpected. We have been coming through here now for 11 years and know what to do. Check with them here at the gate and found out the young lady is with the local fire department and is a "First responder with a pager" so if there is a tornado watch comes in she is right here in the campground (with her family and children ) to move everyone to a secure building they have here. We have been through this many times before and know how to deal with it, not to panic just be prepared to evacuate our RV whenever they come or we hear the sirens. The best that could happen is we could end up alive and well with a  new rv!
        Now with this weather so far it was a great morning to whip up a nice big pot of chicken noodle soup. I had soup chicken broth I made earlier in the freezer, so out it came to be made into some tasty soup.
will get a few tasty lunches out of this
tasty? yup
        After lunch we had a bit of sunshine  and no rain for a while and got to sit outside and finish another book until after 4 pm.
        Then time to whip up supper soon. Tonight had planned  my Easy chicken pot pie recipe is HERE  or check my recipe blog top right sidebar. To go with a small salad.
easy to do and very tasty
you can make it with tuna,  pork or beef if you like
sure did the trick on a rainy, windy day
        After supper the rain continued, suppose to be 1.25 inches of  rain today but at least the wind died down. Weather should be better now we hope.
raining pretty good for a bit then
quit now
        Looks like most of the weather  system has passed for now so we can switch from our antenna local channels (watching the weather) back to our satellite dish to watch whatever shows Suzie wants to see, for the evening.
       Not really too bad of a day after all, the bad weather (tornado) did not happen so we should be good until the next time.
        Thanks for dropping in for a peek.

When we back to Canada April 12th.
Where have we been this Winter?

  5. Soup and pot pie on a windy, rainy spring day sound very comforting. Hope you two continue to dodge the really bad weather.

  8. Glad the bad weather missed you. Arkansas is where Dolly Jo was born and raised. It is a beautiful state with lots of outdoor activities available. Good to see the green grass and budding trees. Yep, Spring is here.
