Cooler but sunny, and issues with the government shutdown

Where are we today ?

          Things around here are becoming quite interesting with this government shutdown.
          Then later noticed this sign by our check in office, meaning they intend to shut down the water and sewage dump station at 11 am Monday morning. Could not be a busier time here in Quartzite the busiest week of the year.  
            Not fussy on an early walkabout until it warms up a bit so at 7:30am  a run into Town (before the traffic starts) stopped at the Roadrunner Market for a few supplies. I drove around La Posa West and noticed these signs at the check at office about the Government shutdown.
       It was much colder last night but we quite comfy here. At 5 am it was 36f  (2c) but in no time our Blue Flame heated brought our inside up to 75C and the thermostat maintains that and as the sun rises  we enjoyed the warmth of the sun, with a clear blue sky and less wind than yesterday. This mornings sunrise is show promise of a much warm day in the sun.

a nice sunrise
 
Garbage dumpsters are not being empty
line up for the sewage dump at one point I counted 30 rv's in line
an average of 2 every 1o minutes its a long wait
mind you have seen this many before in the past
     It was a very nice sunny day but a cool wind think it only got to 58F but we could site outside and read, most of the afternoon, our windbreak (blue Tarp) to keep the cold wind off our feet.
wind behind us , so was quite comfortable
       Just after noon I gathered our empty water containers and sat in line just for about 15 minutes , reading my book anyway so no problem, We have enough conatiers for 15 gallons that will keep us going for a while.

nice blue skies and a jet stream
    Then at 3 pm Happy Hour at Bill and Patsy's thought we would try outside and was actually quite comfortable mostly out of the wind. Tom and Deb joined us and we did our usual share stories .

         Around 4 pm we noticed the Police, fires department and ambulance head further back and a while later made there way back out, not sure what was going on.
