6:44 am - Wednesday - December 16th - Seal Rock, OR - 46° F,93% humidity, wind - CALM.....overcast, cool today with a forecast high of 52° F, and rain. On this date in 2011 we were just 9 days from celebrating our first Christmas of our full time life in the Newell.....Rancho Jurupa Regional Park, December 16, 2011.....in just 6 weeks we would begin our year round travels.....↴
The wind continued to blow until late afternoon when it began to abate, and the rain came and went all day. We received notifiction that our new Dometic absorption fridge has been shipped and will arrive here in Seal Rock on December 23rd. We have turned our defunct Dometic into an 'icebox' by buying blocks of ice, which we put in Rubbermaid dish pans to contain the melting ice. With a block of ice in the former 'freezer' we can keep the temp in the low 40's, and in the former 'fridge' porton below 50. Things which need cooler temps are in the dorm fridge in the trailer, and frozen items are in our basement Norcold refer, which is working well in its new roll as a freezer. At any rate, we are coping quite well while we await the delivery of our new fridge.
