Monday, October 14 – It's been VERY HOT here in the Rio Grande Valley. High in the upper 90's everyday and only cooling off to about 80* at night. That's way too hot. Our AC has been running ALL day and even comes on periodically at night. It's pretty uncomfortable to sit outside even in the shade, which we normally enjoy doing. To make matters worse the humidity level is sky high....in the 90% range. We can understand why people wait until November to begin arriving in the Valley.
We're into one of those “When was the last time we had any real rain” cycles. We don't believe we've been rained on since our stay in Moab back in early September. That's fine for Paul – he hates rain – but when it's this hot, an all day rain might be enjoyable.
Last Thursday, Paul took his truck to Discount Tire to have the tires rotated. While there he decided to shop for new tires for the 5th wheel. He had Michelin LT M/S2 235/85R16 tires installed on the RV. They are LT (light truck) instead of ST (special trailer) tires. They are load range E 10 ply radial tires with a manufacture date of 3713 (37th week of 2013). Everything matches the trailer tire except they are built in America for trucks instead of tires built in China for trailers. We'll see how they wear. Hopefully, this will solve our tire issues.
Bella isn't crazy about anywhere we stop that doesn't have grass. There is really no grass here to speak of in Leisure Valley, so she has to find other ways to entertain herself. The other day she discovered this little gem.
She also has decided she wanted to find a new bed to sleep in. Why she picked this place is beyond our understanding.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
