Preparing for Departure Again

The Rolling Stone is mostly packed for travel. Because the weather forecast for tonight says it's going down to -5°C, we lit off the RV's water heater. I have a checklist pinned to the dashboard for tomorrow morning that includes "turn off water heater" including closing the propane bottle because we don't consider it safe to run the propane appliances while under way.

As we headed home, it started raining. When we went out to light the water heater, Lisa commented that she didn't think it felt like rain. She's right; it was actually very wet snow, although not much of it, and it quit shortly thereafter. The weather forecast for tonight shows a 30% chance of light snow, but fortunately no snow expected over Donner tomorrow, so I should be okay for the drive to the Bay Area tomorrow morning.
