Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, Texas Jan 23

Thursday, January 23, 2014
Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, Texas 52 degrees and cloudy to 56 degrees and cloudy.
The high was before two o’clock and was below forty-four before three o’clock with a steady north wind of twenty and gusts to thirty MPH.

I went out in the afternoon and winterized Busters hoses filling the water tank, disconnecting and emptying the drain hose and disconnecting closing the water compartment and turning on the small heater in there. There could be freezing rain tonight a day to just honker down. The best is we do not have to answer a driveway alarm for trucks coming or going tonight.

Well the rain came and there was freezing, I had went to bed and was asleep when I had the C-pap machine turnoff. I got up and went to find out what happened. The electric had gone off earlier and the c-pap was running off the house batteries, and the big television, dish, box, computer and four electric heaters. Needless to say the batteries were worn down quickly. This was only after eleven at night. No battery left to start the generator. I had started the gas brick heater in the late afternoon that uses no electric. I connected the car to the house batteries and ran the car at idle so there would be power for the gas furnace blower to operate.  About three thirty the power came back on to stay and after four I turned off the car and went back to bed. There were a lot of icy bridges and flyovers in the San Antonio area this morning (Friday). When I went out there was ice all over the car and Buster the steps and the ground frozen rain.
