Default Snowbirds....

Just wondering if you still plan on heading south this winter with Covid still amongst us? We have until Dec 1st to cancel and get our deposit back....

We probably will head south after the election.

I figure that we are "at risk" just by living on Planet Earth.

However, we still will try to do the social distancing, etc.

Some Canadian snowbirds are in a bit of a pickle. They use their mobile homes here in the summer and head south for the winter. They don’t own permanent residents and most mobile homes are not built for Canadian winters. Full service mobile parks are filling fast.

WE are not snowbirds. I do not like warm or hot weather. It can get too hot for us here in the summer.
We will stay home. We always do.

I'll probably never be a snowbird. I love cold weather! It's so refreshing. I'm grateful for AC b/c our summers are hot!

We will be heading to Arizona some time after Christmas. We generally stay mostly in the desert in our RV, not in a resort, so no reservations to contend with. We usually head into a campground or resort a few times a winter, just for variety. With the Canadians almost surely being stuck at home, there should be lots of places open. I feel very sorry for the snowbirds stuck the other side of the border, but if I lived there I would be spooked by the COVID numbers here too! Oh, and my sewing machine, some projects, and even my Accuquilt cutter and a number of dies come with me!
