That is the description of Tuesday and Wednesday.  All private and public schools and universities have closed for two days.  Even Keesler AFB was closed except for essential personnel.  By the afternoon rain turned to ice or frozen rain and covered the ground like snow.  Temps in the afternoon topped at 31*. 

Authorities are telling folks to stay at home and not go on the roads.  Many bridges have been closed while other bridges have only one lane opened.  Major highways are deserted with little traffic.  Mississippi governor has declared a state of emergency for 36 counties and many counties have instituted curfews.

I made a big pot of green chili with New Mexico chiles we have in the freezer.  I also cooked up a pot of pinto beans and made them into refried beans.  Add a flour tortilla and some cheese and we had a nice dinner of smothered bean burritos that we shared with Sandy and Charles.


It’s 6:30 a.m. and it is 18* outside.  When we got up it was 58* inside the rig….and, yes, we had our electric heater going all night long.  We just turned on our Kozy World ceramic brick propane heater and it quickly got the temps up to 60* inside.

We experienced a hard freeze the last two days, so we stayed put and hunkered down.  I’ll make a pot of posole or red chili for dinner, watch a movie and knit.

Hope you’ll are warm and dry.

Remember, you are loved.

  1. Just came upon your blog from top 50 RV blogs. You're living my dream. Someday. But hey, be careful in that freeze down there. 18 degrees up in central Massachusetts, but the sun is out. Actually feels warm compared to recently. Have fun. Happy trails.

    1. Welcome aboard. Thank you for checking in on our blog. Today (Thursday) is finally warming up...thank goodness.

  2. Smart to hunker down and stay safe. Too many nuts out there can't drive in this and make it dangerous for everyone.
