Just In Time

Lisa and I went to Reno today to Safari RV and bought two new roof vent covers plus a replacement for the holding tank vent. That's because besides needing to replace the cover that blew away, we have a longer-term need to replace the other cover and the vent, Lisa says. That's because they've all deteriorated in the sun over twenty years, as plastic covers do, so this could be considered maintenance. Fortunately, these vents are a standard part, and the standard hasn't been abandoned the way it seems happens too often these days.

When we got home, we got out the ladder again and Lisa installed the replacement cover in about fifteen minutes. About thirty minutes later, we had a few drops of rain, and the current forecast is for a 50% chance of thunderstorms tonight. Whew!

Lisa and I were both very tired and cut short our Saturday shopping trip. Because of a medical appointment on Tuesday, we'll need to come back in that afternoon (I'll have to work that night to make up the time for Day Jobbe), and we'll deal with the rest of the large grocery shopping that evening. It probably will be less busy then anyway.
