Kyle and Ashley invited us over for supper tonight, and Kyle prepared a Chicken Alfredo dish - it was delicious! We brought some salad to go with it and some pie for dessert, and we all enjoyed a meal and a good chance to visit. It was also a good chance to spend more time with Brycen, and Elaine took advantage of it as you can see in the photo at left. Ashley works full time at Walmart and since Kyle has not been released to work yet, he handles Daddy duties during the day and does most (all?) of the cooking and other house duties. It works well for them. They have a small apartment in the same place that Elaine once lived in more than 60 years ago; just a different apartment.

A result of the recent snowstorm is a stark white White Mountain this morning, as the photo at left shows. This is the view we get when we are able to park on lot L10. However, by afternoon much of the lower snow has melted since we had a mostly sunny day today and temps got into the mid 40s. Another result from the storms is a muddy mess here in Rock Springs - Green River KOA. Few of the lots have a gravel surface, so the underlying clay soils become quite muddy to walk on. In fact we have taken to carrying the dogs to and from the car to reduce the amount of mud tracked into the car and the house. I parked the car behind us this afternoon to let the sun help dry out the area in front.

The view out our front window early this morning


Last evening we noticed that it had started snowing. And this morning I woke up to see about three inches had fallen and it continued to snow fine flakes. That let up by mid-morning, but by noon it had started again, this time with bigger flakes. This made the ground around our RV site quite muddy, as there is very little gravel topping in this row. And, of course, it was also quite wet. I wore tennis shoes instead of sandals, and mostly kept my feet somewhat dry when taking the dogs out. But as the storm continued, the drainage valley in front of OurHous and under our car began running with runoff and snow melt.

Shauna, Casey, and supper


We spent an enjoyable few hours with Shauna and Casey at their home today. Shauna prepared an excellent meal that we all shared for dinner; lasagna and salad, with garlic bread. They have a nice large home in Green River that they have owned for several years now, and in which they have made many changes and modernizations. And the home is getting more and more lovely as time goes on. And it is always enjoyable to spend time with those two. Elaine and Shauna worked on craft projects in her craft room, and Casey and I got a good chance to catch up on many topics.

We visited with Jo Behrman this afternoon; Jo is Elaine's sister. Having been worried about her because she has been going through some health problems for the last year or so, we were happy to see that she is looking and sounding better. And she says she is feeling better than she has for quite some time. That is always good to hear. She will be having some day surgery this coming week, which should help relieve some of the problems she has been having. Let's hope and pray!




A quiet day in Rock Springs    (Click for full story)

We had a wild storm here today, including snow and rain and lots of wind.


I say it was a quiet day, but that was for me. Elaine and Shauna went out first thing this morning for a mani/pedi session and then to do some shopping and sharing "girl time". I stayed home with the boys and listened to the strong wind blowing and rocking OurHous; it was not altogether quiet there. John came over for a visit this afternoon. Then later this afternoon Elaine and I went grocery shopping at WalMart. It started to rain a little as we left for WalMart, and when we came out it was snowing, mixed with rain. No accumulation, though.
