So, it is that time of year again, the time of year when I winterize Wanda. Yet, this year I am winterizing Wanda myself, rather than paying someone to do it.
So, as I look at the warm weather now and in the foreseeable future and I am forced to wonder if I might wait a bit before winterizing Wanda.
You see, winterizing means that I can no longer use the indoor fresh water plumbing in Wanda.
I will still be able to use the sinks (to pour stuff into) and the toilet, but I will not be able to turn the tap and get fresh water out of them.
Also I will not be able to get a real shower, as in a regular hot water shower, in my shower.
I can still do my jug showers (that I do all along) but I won’t be able to have a real shower.
So, it is something to consider, exactly when (or if) to winterize, but full-timing it on the streets of a Prairie city is not wise to not winterize at some point.
Given the fact that the weather can turn on a dime and I can be in the deep freeze in the matter of hours and you can see why waiting to winterize is a gamble.
It is a gamble that I am not prepared to make. I am still remembering the block of ice that was my Black Water tank for months.
That and trying to winterize when it is cold and getting colder is not fun, neither is trying to find a full hook-up campground in the dead of winter just to winterize.
So, I will winterize this weekend, tomorrow actually, and just get it over with. I am used to living without running water in Wanda, so this is no big deal to me.
It is just something that I have to do in order to make my dreams a reality.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
