2020 May 18 Atomic Fireball in the Sky!

Monday

In Liberty Hill, Texas

Welcome to our daily journal.

Share it with your friends.

  • 7 months 18 days since we returned to Texas.
  • 64 days being self isolated.

The sun exploded over the treetops today like the atomic fireball that it is. After too many days of looking like the moon’s week sister, it came up with a vengeance today.It started out nice and cool at sixty one degrees, but suddenly began that climb into the nineties. Old Sol will not even reached its zenith until close to two o’clock this afternoon, and it has reached the mid eighties by ten o’clock. I fear the predicted high of ninety two may be optimistically low.At ninety three degrees, I believe we’ve past the hottest part of the dayWell, I’ll be jiggered if it didn’t go ahead and climb to ninety four before five o’clock. Just as I thought the tide had turned and it was gonna slowly cool down. Well I’m as right as the weather forecasters are. I know, that ain’t saying much.Early this morning, I noticed this spider web. This spider (or one of its kin) had built a web in this spot earlier. However, I had rolled the awning away while working on the RV roof last week. That destroyed the web. Today, I was glad to see the web rebuilt. Much to the chagrin of my bride, I do not sweep away spiderwebs. They are God’s fly traps. I’d rather have spiders than flies.We had a Grandies meeting via Zoom at nine o’clock this morning. There were only nine (including Ella and me) out of around two dozen members. Some have neither computer nor smart phone with which to connect. Some are in a hospital or a care facility. By the way, not pictured above but present were the other Donna and Cephus.We will reconvene, again via Zoom, on Wednesday morning for a business meeting. One topic for discussion will be the proposal for Ella and me to gather up all of the empty aluminum cans, that members and others have been saving, and taking them to the recycling place in Marble Falls.Today has been a stay-inside out-of-the-heat kind of day. I can report that my Double Bubble Reflective Foil Insulation has done what it was supposed to do, bounce the sunlight and heat back out of the windows.The only drawback is, that Ella said she feels like she’s living in a cave. I, on the other hand, am considering affixing it to the outside of the glass. That would stop the heat from passing through the windows at all. I have no problem in the least with living in a cave.That old atomic fireball continues to throw the heat at us from around the curve of the earth.Thanks again for stopping by. See y’all again tomorrow. Stay safe. We love you.God bless and g’day.

2020 May 18 Cutty’s letter

We are very pleased the Governor has allowed us as members to camp and to have our guests. However, just a reminder that camping units must be self-contained since bathhouses are still ordered to be closed. There are no mass gatherings and only groups of ten or less people are allowed. Social distancing of six feet is also required.
