Our Location: Oakdale Campground, Quincy, Ohio
We woke this morning to cold temperatures although not as cold as yesterday, 28F/-2C and snow flurries in the air. I think I would prefer rain, that means it's warmer. However nothing is accumulating on the ground, so I'm happy about that.
|You turn just before that farm house up there to come back to the park.|
We've decided to stay in for the day as tomorrow is supposed to be much nicer, or at least less snowy. Yeah. Actually tomorrow is the beginning of the warm up so we're looking forward to that.
|I think in the summer with the leaves on and the grass all green, this is a beautiful little spot. Those trailers up there on the top right side are the same ones you can see through the trees in one of the pictures below.|
It's good to see some friends are back in Canada, with a few stragglers like us still lingering south of the border hoping for a break in the weather. It's always a guess as to what we can expect when we get back home for weather. To those with a stix 'n brix to settle into the cold is much less bothersome. We all know that spring will come sooner or later but I for one would like sooner rather than later. I believe last year was an earlier spring, so I guess we have to pay up for that this year.
|The road in to the campground just behind the bare trees and that field on the other side of the road goes all the way to OH 235 N.|
This morning we prepared a crock pot of chili to cook for the day and instead of ground beef we add chicken as we prefer chicken to beef. I have a craving for a nice big burger but with the weather I'm not going to get the Weber out to make it. Guess we'll just have to go out and have one else where. I will say I'm looking forward to getting the Weber out again soon, we haven't had it out since Superstition Mountain, near Apache Junction, AZ. That's a long time for us not to have the BBQ going.
|Can you see the trailers through the trees on the left? That orange stuff is a snow fence that will be taken down soon.|
The snow stopped shortly after noon but the skies remained over cast with no break of any kind. We could hear the workers nearby with chainsaws, hammers and other tools as they continue doing their clean up. Our temperatures remained quite cool, our high being 38F/ 3C today.
|Lots of seasonal campers remain in their space all winter.|
We spent the day doing some cleaning and reading our books. Tomorrow we have plans to go out as the Big Dog needs a drink, and the fridge is looking a bit bare. Hopefully the weather is nicer.
|Can you see the Miami River down there? Those buildings are across the river.|
Thanks for stopping by, sorry there isn't more exciting things going on but well, that's just the way things are here in our little Igloo. Feel free to leave a comment.
|This is across the river from us. The debris that has been caught on the dock over there during the big flood has since been cleaned up as the water continues to recede.|
Until next time.... take care, be safe,
