Snow melt, rain today in Kanab

Rainy window view Kanab UtahMust have rained last night as this morning there was barely any snow left.  It continued to rain most of the day so there’s red, sticky, clay-like mud all around.

Bent water heater Kanab UtahNot a good day to work on the RV.  Got the new water heater installed last week with Bill’s help and it’s working but it must have been dropped before I received it as the metal is dented making it impossible to get the outside cover attached correctly.  I want to contact the seller yet at the same time don’t want to reinstall another one.  Dilemma.  The single digit below freezing temperatures for almost two weeks around Christmas caused a gray water drain pipe from the kitchen to freeze and fill the tank.  A small heater pointed at the pipe thawed it and the tank emptied.  Really, what am I doing living in this cold climate in a RV?  Love my RV but hate the cold.

Started to feel sinuses plugged with a runny nose last night.  Slept good.  Today I’m plugged and sniveling/blowing.  TMI.  Been doing so good at not getting chilled and staying away from crowds.  But Sunday Bill and I went to town and many stores so could have been exposed to anything.  Dang, I hate getting a cold as much as I hate being cold.

Thinking about a road trip one day this week through Zion National Park to see it with snow.  Probably on the way to St George to pick up my South African laptop.  Hope it works better, and me too because I have to learn Windows 10 from this upgrade from the dreaded and all I could get Windows 8 after my laptop was stolen.

Spent most of the day multi-tasking on the computer, where I spend way too much time during the winter especially.  Bouncing between Facebook, news and conservation articles, emails, reading and writing blogs, checking website stats, and forever labeling photos.  Because I’m OCD and want to easily find images in search, I give every photo a descriptive label.  Currently I’m on September 24th, 2015.  Yes, months behind.  But not too bad out of over 25,000 photos taken last year.  I actually post every 100th photo labeled on my Facebook page, if your interested.

Sun break thru clouds Kanab UtahAround 2:30 the sun did it’s best to burn through the gray cover and a few blue spots appeared over the cliffs, briefly.  The wet ground sparkled.  Low, dark clouds hung on the western horizon.  Achoo!!
