Last week and this Saturday we had sunny skies and temperatures in the low 90's. That all changed Sunday when our first cold front arrived earlier than expected around 2:30 p.m. We had strong winds from the north and showers that lasted until noon today. This morning it was in the low 40's, which for Texans is considered COLD.
I spent last week getting ready for the cooler weather since I can not lift more than 10 lbs per doctor's orders. I needed to run more errands but was not able to get around to it, putting it off for today. I knew better...I only mustered the strength to go outside twice and that was to feed the cats. 😺
Del Rio only has one climate-controlled storage facility and it has a waiting list. The owner called me back in July to let me know that a 10 x 5 unit had become available if I wanted it. Unfortunately, I was not able to open it, as I do not have the arm span of Victor Wembanyama.
That particular unit is located at the entrance of the facility and while it was around 105 degrees that day it did not seem like the A/C was set at 72 to 74 degrees as I was told. I have a little more than a year's supply of food that I need to move but it has to be at a climate-controlled storage. I'm still on the waiting list but it could be months or years until one becomes available.
In the meantime, I rented a regular unit at a location closer to the house where I am putting some of the boxes I brought down from Houston. However, I need to make time to go through them and get rid of things or donate the "stuff" I no longer need.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
