A Day at Home

(Scott AFB, IL) Hi 93 Lo 71 -- It's really hot for this time of year. Today we set a new all-time high temperature record in St. Louis for this date. Our air conditioner is working hard to keep our home cool. We have a second air conditioner, but we're on 30-amp, so we can't run both of them.

Son Frank came over today to watch the NASCAR race with us. We ordered a pizza and he picked it up on the way. We switched back and forth between the race, the St. Louis Blues hockey game, and the Cardinals baseball game. Quite an active sports watching session. But most of all it was nice just sitting and talking. After Frank left we did mostly nothing the rest of the afternoon and evening...just our regular TV and computer stuff.

Some days there's just nothing to write about. This was one of them.

If nothing else, St Louis is a great sports town.

We only have 30 amp and one air condition in our rig. So it's working hard here in AZ every day. Thank goodness the nights still cool down for us. When I talked to Jim yesterday morning he was in a panic cause his TV wasn't working. But they got somebody in his room right away so he didn't miss any of the race. You know - the important stuff.

You might be able to run both air conditioners if you run the water heater and refrigerator on propane and then run nothing else and we really mean nothing else. If you want to use the microwave shut off one of the a/c units and then back on when done. You might be able to watch TV with both air conditioners running but that is about it. We usually get 50a but one time we had 30a and it was not super hot but both a/c units worked. Give it a try and let us know. If it does not work you can always run your well exercised generator if it gets real bad.

Sometimes I yearn for a simple "boring" day. Enjoy.

My two sons are sport fanatics. They watch several events every weekend and have the split screens so they don't miss a thing. I tried to keep up with them...but me coming from the old school...all I could do is keep up with one. That was hard...do to the multi events going on.
