Last Stop in the Lone Star State
Nights were getting colder at Medina Lake, so we needed to move on. We headed south toward El Paso (our next mail drop) to see if we could find warmer climes.
Unfortunately for us, it was the Deep Freeze at the beginning of January - the "Cold Bomb" - and it stretched all the way west to Arizona. We didn't have the gumption to get all the way there - nor the gas money - so we huddled down in the south of Texas for a couple of nights.
The pipes froze.
We were without water for a day. Luckily the bathhouse was near and the water was running.
Funny - the afternoon temperatures were in the fifties. At night, in the twenties or teens.
Jonah took his journal out to study the local flora.
We also checked out the campground's playground.
It wasn't much, but it would do.
