When I left for the Wal Mart at Hillsboro,TX yesterday the sky was very dark and foreboding, I hoped I got back to Whitney before the rain. It is only about 20 miles to the Wal Mart. I looked for the heater my friend had bought and liked very much. I found the Lasko, but the one I ended up with doesn't have a remote control. It was $49.95, and I didn't think I really needed the remote for the difference. Mine was $34.95 and suits me just fine. It kept my downstairs nice and warm last night.
I almost made it back before the rain, I did get a little wet getting my packages in the rig. One thing about my heater, I can not use toaster,microwave or anything else when the heater is on. I kicked the breaker first thing this morning, forgot I had the heater on. I am on 30 amp here, so I really need to move to a site with 50 amp. I have been toasty warm all night and today. Temps expected to drop into the 33 tonight, so we will see how that works. I won't run the furnace, or fireplace. If the temps get down to freezing for any length of time, I will have to turn furnace on low to keep my pipes from freezing, but I don't expect that to happen this early in the year. We will be back in the 70s by next week, this is Texas you know!
