But this year is messed up.
When we were kids, you always went back to school on the Tuesday following Labor Day weekend.
Well this year, the powers that be here in Saskatchewan decided that kids would go back to school last Tuesday. Something about not being able to cram all the learning into a school year that was shorter by four days.
So as it was, we only had 13 reservations for this weekend. Now to be fair, many people would wait until the last minute and if the weather had been looking great we likely would have had a fairly busy weekend here at the park.
But the weather is not great. In fact, it couldn't be much worse!
Yikes. Only a high of 9C (48F) on Sunday.
They've actually been forecasting this for a couple of days now, and 6 of our 13 reservations have already called to cancel. Can't say I blame them!
Since we did kind of see this coming, I did all my grass cutting yesterday. And, I made some room in the shop so that I can pull most of Sherman inside so I can at least get some work done to him over the next couple of days. He doesn't totally fit, but most of him is out of the rain.
When we were in town earlier this week, I bought a windshield chip repair kit. This stupid insurance inspection that Sherman has to go to on Tuesday is very fussy about windshield stuff and there was one chip that I didn't think would pass, but if it was repaired it just might.
I had never put a lot of faith in these do-it-yourself kits, but this one had pretty good reviews on the Canadian Tire website and now that I've done it myself I'm fairly impressed. I should have taken some before and after pics! Anyhow, if you can follow the fairly detailed instructions exactly, I don't see why anybody can't do this themselves.
Oh...so I fired up the motorhome yesterday. He's been sitting for over 4 months, so it's always a great feeling when you turn the key and he's raring to go! (Turn up your volume!)
