Cousin Linda’s Home

We arrived yesterday early afternoon at Linda’s home in Dixon, KY. She lives on a 2 lane blacktop road with a speed limit of 35MPH. But, just a few houses away the speed limit goes up to 45 MPH. There are a few cars that go by doing the speed limit, but the Semi-trucks are going every bit of 50 MPH or more past her home. This concerned us as this is hilly country, and I had to first pull into the neighbors drive across the street from Linda’s. Then back across both lanes and into her drive, to park next to their home.

Linda made life very easy for us though. She had arranged to have a friend in a car at the top of one hill with his four way flashers on, stopping traffic. Then there was the local police officer with his blue lights flashing coming from the other way. This did the trick and there was no traffic for me to worry about. It only took me a couple minutes to back into her drive, so it really didn’t have much of an impact on any of the local traffic. THANK YOU LINDA!
Yesterday the temperature got up to 99 F. missing the record by only 1 degree. Today though I believe it broke the record. The outside is now reading 100 F. in the shade! Earlier today I actually saw the temperature hit 104 F. for a brief 15 minutes or so. By the time I thought of getting the camera, it had dropped to what you see below.

The air conditioner in the Motorhome stays running constantly, not being able to get it below 83 F. inside the Motorhome during the day. However the night is cooler and the air conditioner actually shuts off.
At 1:14pm, on the table, 82.9 F. inside the MH 44.6 F. inside the fridge.DSC_3666
The family is planning on having a “Family Reunion” outside tomorrow. I only hope we don’t have temperatures like today!
