We're planning to evacuate again this Wednesday but now we're more experienced and it won't be as hurried or frightening. For now, we're packing and moving things around and I really need to go do that. But I promised Sarah and Essie videos which I will download here and write explanations later. One picture's worth a thousand words, I guess.
I have been helping inventory the empty trailers and part of getting them ready is cleaning them. I think in the last couple of days I've defrosted about four refrigerators. I feel like the defrost queen. However, I'm kind of enjoying it. There's something kind of creative about watching ice melt. Don't understand it myself, either.
I've moved to a new trailer again. The AC finally wore out in the one I've slept in for the last 2 or 3 nights. The only setting that works is high and I freeze to death at that setting. Any lower than high and the coils freeze over and the durned thing stops cooling at all. I have to shut it of and let the coils thaw out...more defrosting fun. My HVAC guru/husband says it sounds like it's low on freon but I can't find a sticker that tells me which kind it uses. One type of freon would be easy to replace but the other can only be purchased and recharged by a professional.
But, with the evacuations and moving and sorting out what to evacuate next, I'm just plain sick of moving stuff around. I can't remember what, if anything, I left in New Orleans. I didn't bring that many clothes since I thought I'd be here for a couple of weeks and maybe go home before I got a camp assigned to me. I purposely didn't bring a lot because it seemed like I had too many clothes the last time. But not this time.
Anyway, here's video for the grands. I want to show you what we did Saturday and I hope to post that tomorrow.
