Wind, wind and more wind!

The last few days have been pretty much same old, same old, so I haven't felt the need to update things too much.
We have been hanging around Boomerville for the most part with only one quick trip into town today to pick up some more water which we shared with our neighbours.
Part of the reason for hanging in close is that it has been cold and very windy since Monday. The wind during the day has been gusting upwards of 60 KPH at times which makes it quite hard to do much out doors. Yesterday in fact it got so bad I took our flag pole down as I thought it might break as it was bending over so much.
We were supposed to do a community pot luck Monday but it was also cancelled due to the cold and the wind. It has been rescheduled for Friday along with a showing of the Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz classic, "The Long Long Trailer".
Yesterday we did get a chance to have a small gathering of some of the Canadians here. We did it in the lee of a strategically placed motor home and also used our truck to block some of the wind as well. If you look at our flag in these shots, you can get an idea of the wind and the heavy coats will illustrate the temperature.

The good news is that it looks like the worst is over! Yaaayyy! Very light winds and lots of sun in the forecast for the next while so hopefully we can get caught up on some outdoor stuff.
Oh, by the way, we are up to 222 registered rigs here as of about 6 PM! Possibly a new Boomerville record.
