Yup, That’s the kinda day it is here – and COLD – and WINDY. The snow is melting before it hits the ground but UGH all the same.
Current temperature is 2C/35.6F but the online forecast says it feels more like –2C/26.6F.
And tomorrow we have the same type of weather to look forward to. Wednesday it’s supposed to smarten up and we should at least see some sunshine. Gonna be two very long days !!
Now having given all that gloom and doom regarding the weather, I sure wouldn’t want to be in Arizona at this time of year. They are experiencing 100+F temps. I’d just melt into a puddle !
This morning I got kicked out of my home – yes, the repairs have started. They are letting me stay in an older coach while the repairs are being done. I miss my Canyon Star already !! LOL
This is THE COACH I'LL BE LIVING IN for the next two weeks. If you’re so inclined to check out the link, let me tell you that the pictures make it look better than it is.
If you are not inclined to check out the link, it is a 1990 Mallard (never heard of that one before) complete with BLUE carpeting and BLUE chairs etc. It has been sitting all Winter and it took some time to get everything working, not the least of which was the engine battery which was dead. And there is quite a musty old smell – obviously ‘cause it’s been sitting for so long.
Don’t get me wrong here Folks – I am VERY, VERY grateful. Jenn, the Body Shop Manager, has gone out of her way to accommodate me in every way from the day I first arrived here. Other staff members that I’ve spoken to are so polite and friendly and also go out of their way. The Folks at the THE HITCH HOUSE certainly know the true meaning of Customer Service.
I’ve had to run back and forth several times already today to get various things out of my rig. They wasted no time in starting the work. ALL the compartment doors on the passenger side got damaged – some to a greater degree than others.
The last two compartment doors got the worst of it (see where the plastic is) but thankfully the ‘frame’ was ok. Therefore they had to just order new ‘skins’ and they should be in by tomorrow.
There were some fine cracks on the back of the coach that must have happened due to the impact. The drying process will take some time I expect.
I think it must be the painting part that’s going to take so long – they are telling me the work will likely take two weeks.
As you can see, most of the repair part is already done. The doors consist of three colours – light grey; dark grey and red.
That’s it for my update today Folks.
