As many have reported, we have had rain all weekend long and I wanted to head out between the downpours.even though I worked in the office yesterday, I still was feeling that I hadn't accomplished much this weekend, so off Iris and I went for the 8-10 mile drive to the Safeway gas station.
We left the house with blue sky's and sunshine and by the time we hit Scottsdale Road and the 101, the sky's were dark and the wind and rain were coming down with a vengeance. I stayed in the far right lane doing between 60-65 and these two big boys passed me like I was sitting still. I would imagine that they are up higher than me and can see better, but I still don't think I would travel at that speed under those conditions.
Got to Safeway and saw two pumps on one side that were wide open. I drove right in and had to back up a few feet to get aligned with the pump. I saw a women in my driver's side mirror shaking her fist at me. When I got out of Iris she said you need to learn how to drive, you almost ran me over. I said I was sorry and asked her if she saw my back up lights. She said she did, so I asked her why she walked behind the motor home while I was backing up? She walked away without saying anything else, hopefully she won't do that again anytime soon.
Iris wasn't as low on fuel as I had thought, so I was only able to take advantage of buying 20 gallons at $2.25 per gallon, saving 90 cents per gallon. Not bad, huh?
But Iris is now completely fueled up and ready for our next adventure in a couple of weeks. So now I have accomplished something and I feel much better, so I can watch golf, have a beer and take a nap...not a bad reward!
Hope your weekend has been great and your week will be even better! Be safe out there and thanks for the visit!
