Humid, Humid, Humid=Bad Hair Days

I can’t recall a summer that was this humid.  Wisconsin usually gets a week or two each summer with dew points in the 70s.  This summer has been incredibly humid with an abundance of rain.  The mosquitoes are thriving!!  I’ve decided to let my hair grow longer so I can put it in a pony tail on humid or windy days.  This humidity is driving me crazy.  My hair isn’t long enough for the pony tail yet, so every day is a bad hair day :(

We have been able to continue our daily walks with some adjustments.  We go right after we wake up in the morning.  We cover ourselves in Deep Woods Off and then shower when we get back.  The rest of the day we have been spending inside with the air on.  This Friday the hot, humid weather is supposed to improve.  I’m looking forward to spending time outside again :)

It was great spending time with good friends last week.  We camped in Waupaca with 4 other couples for 5 days over the 4th of July weekend.  We played cards and ate; we played board games and ate; we went shopping and ate; we attended the 4th of July parade and ate.  You get the picture.  It really was a good time; now it’s back to the Wii Fit and daily walks.

Last Sunday it rained very hard most of the night.  When I got up on Monday morning, I discovered that water had somehow leaked through the window in our large slide.  The floor under the window next to the kitchen table was soaked.  When Kevin got up, he found water had gotten into a bedroom slide window as well. 

I called the warranty administrator at Gillette Interstate RV where we purchased our camper.  His name is Tom, and he is the nicest guy.  Unfortunately, they are in Michigan about 8 hours from us.  He gave me a few suggestions on what may have caused the leaks.  We will be taking it to a local dealer to have the awning fabric replaced in a few weeks (it is tearing).  We’ll have them check out the windows as well. 

This is our 5th Jayco, and we have always been extremely satisfied with our Jaycos.  I’m a bit disappointed with the problems we’ve experienced with this one.  Mostly, it has been small things, but it seems there is always a new problem popping up.  This water leakage is a major concern.  Now, we’re having trouble with the DVD player.  I’m glad Jayco has a 2 year warranty.  Hopefully, we will have discovered all the problems before the end of October when our warranty expires.

There has just been a tornado warning issued for our county.  It looks like it is north of us.  Time to batten down the hatches!
