They didn't have work for Michael in CA so they sent us here. They said they want him back when they actually start to work - but that never happened.
This town is 100% run off wind power! First town in the USA to go totally wind powered! Cool Huh?! It's a small farming town of 1,300 people. We really like it here, really nice people. It is very refreshing that everyone smiles & waves at us driving by and the grocery store helped me bring out groceries!!! Just like back home. We stopped by a church for a little help because of our 5th wheel issue and they were so giving! We are really blessed to be here.We were staying at the KOA Kampground.
Due to an electrical fire in our 5th wheel - we are had to stay at the Rock Port Inn. Michael was at work for his first day here and right before lunch the air conditioners and lights started coming on and off. Before I knew it smoke started rolling out of the main breaker and fuse box in the living room and from our bedroom tv. I got the kids and dogs out. Then I got the baking soda just in case. I turned off and unplugged everything I could think of and got out myself. The hosts at the KOA let me & the girls (dogs too) use their cabin that has AC until we got Michael on the phone (he says I should have just let it burn). He came home and we got a motel room. The next day he took the 5th wheel to Camping World in Iowa (hour away). God was watching out for us because if we would have been sleeping or away it would have turned out MUCH differently.
