Fallon/Fernley, NV: With the time change, we are now driving to work at dawn/sunrise. The cloud formations, clearness of the air and sunrise colors are so pretty. The weather has been mild with daytime temps of low 60s, night temps around 40 degrees, so no scraping ice. That's about to change.
Forecast for tonight is strong winds. By Friday afternoon, we could have snow to the valley floor. Prediction is for about an inch of snow. We'll see how that pans out.
Tuesday was our mandatory overtime day at work. We are working five ten-hour days this week (through Saturday). On Tuesday, amazon.com served us all Thanksgiving lunch--turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, corn, green beans, a roll and either pumpkin or apple pie. They gave us a 45-minute lunch with no time clock punching. People are so hungry by lunchtime the food just disappears from their plates.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving lunch for our regular shift; however because we got Thanksgiving lunch on Tuesday, we have to take our lunch in tomorrow. : (
Bob's interview with Kodiak Roofing in Sacramento looks like it may produce a job, even though we plan to travel mid-April through the end of October. Bob is excited to go back into roofing, which he knows very well, and get paid accordingly.
At work, we are making very good friends who are also work kampers (and some who aren't but would like to be). Bill and Janette, Kevin & Patty, Dick & Carol and Fred and Gladi are a wealth of information about RV'ing, working on the road, and an RV group called the Escapees (SKP's). We feel we are adding to our ohana (family).
Bill and Janette (who asked us to go to dinner at Louie's China Bistro last week) invited us to go to Pioneer Crossing Casino in Fernley for Thanksgiving. (The Casino is serving a sit-down dinner--not a buffet.) A number of RV'ers are going.
We do not miss our "stick and brick" house and love our new "mobile" home. I may have mentioned this before...our 5er is very cozy. When we first get home from work, while we're waiting for the place to heat up, both of us sit in the recliners and drape a blanket across us which is also draped over the heater vent. Toasty!
Some Oregon friends are going to be in Carson City, NV this week to visit relatives. They plan to visit us while they're in the area. We are looking forward to seeing them.
Bob wants me to proofread something for him. All for now.
