|I heard the wind gusts outside and the trailer shook of it. Something nasty was going on outside. Got up at a quarter past seven and looked out. Sky was grey and a small rain was coming down. Wind was indeed very strong and it looked cold. Could it be true that we really carried the cold over from Florida? I began to feel bad. Would it be cold in California when we got there? |
We hung around our breakfast table for a while, doing some computing. When it was going towards lunch we decided to invite our hosts to join in on it and go visit a local restaurant named P & T’s Cafe. They serve Mexican food and it was great. Those small-town eateries are sure a great way to eat good and extremely reasonable with their prices.
We had basically finished our lunch when we heard sirens going by. Fire trucks and an ambulance were swishing by, then more sirens….
After we had left the restaurant we saw the black smoke rising from the block behind the restaurant. A house stood on fire like I have personally never seen it before. Flames were whipped 50ft. high by the strong wind and we could feel the heat where we stood far off. The word was that nobody had been home, but there was no way the firemen could have saved that house. All they could do was prevent the fire from spreading through the neighbourhood. What a tragic loss for the owners. Did they use a heating fan on this cold day? We’ll never know.
It’s all Peanuts in Texas!
Most people are watching Super Bowl tonight. We will not as we hold no interest in neither football or soccer. And we won’t be watching the Olympics either. It’s just not our cup of tea.
Tomorrow we will be taking off on the I-10 and hopefully, if no more flat tires, make it into the neighbourhood of El Paso.
See you underway!
