Greetings from sunny and, relatively speaking, warm Weatherford! We've talked to a few folks around here who think our 50-degree days and 20-something degree nights are cold. Compared to where we've been the last five weeks, we tell them, this place is a tropical paradise! It's all relative, I guess.
We left Wellington around 9:30 yesterday morning and within minutes were in Oklahoma. With no precipitation in the forecast along our route, we weren't too concerned about the heavy overcast. But, as we approached the Arbuckle Mountains (and it's a real stretch to call them mountains) a steady drizzle turned to snow. The storm was of the "big flake" variety that reduced visability and piled up quickly. Thankfully, the road remained clear and everyone took their time making their way.
By the time we crossed the border into Texas, the snow had changed back to rain. We were so glad to have that mess behind us. We made our wet way into and around Fort Worth, then headed west to Weatherford.
We've made our temporary home here at the Oak Creek RV Park, just west of Weatherford. This three-year-old park has everything we need to relax and thaw out for a few days. (Notice the bright blue sky and the absence of white stuff on the ground.)
We look forward to exploring the area a bit and visiting with family. We'll head south from here on Monday.
