This looks JUST like Kansas, Toto

I have been to San Francisco about 6 times. What can this possibly have to do with arriving at New Horizons to pick up my RV today? Bear with me.

In those 6 SF visits, I have been in two earthquakes. Two. Odds are 1 in 3. So who could be the least bit surprised that today Kansas would have:

If you can't read the words in red, they say "TORNADO WARNING."

Now it wasn't in THIS county, but it was relatively close. Several were seen by spotters, and one probably touched down. We had a very safe place to go if need be -- the "pits" that are used to work on the RVs. Fortunately, all we got here was rain.

At New Horizons:

That little guy is mine! There are three RVs with their humans spending the night here tonight. To my right (your left in the photo) are a couple from York, PA, who have also just moved into their RV and have also never done this before. To my left (out of the photo) are a couple who have fulltimed for years. They will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year! Their napkins say, "Let me call you sweetheart -- because I can't remember your name!"

We all sat around drinking wine, and discussed rigs, campgrounds, and fulltiming. I feel like these were friends I was just waiting to meet. If everyone is half as nice as my temporary neighbors, I know I'll be making the right decision in this lifestyle.

Since my water heater decided to develop a leak, it needs to be replaced. I'm just glad it did it here instead of at a campground someplace. They are in the process of getting another one, and I'm not sure when that will get here. I'm pretty sure I'll be here tomorrow night, but I don't know beyond that.
