More of the Same, Part 2 or 3 or?
Here it is, Saturday morning, and our third rain storm of the week. There has been close to six inches of rain so far, for the week. Another 2-5 inches possible with this storm. I really wish all of this was falling in Texas and Oklahoma, where it is needed. Every lake, pond, swamp, whatever, is full to overflowing in our part of the World.
Sally doesn’t like it, either. Over the past couple of years she has become frightened of thunder. At the first distant roll, she begins to pace. As it gets nearer, she’ll get on one lap or the other, then jump down and reverse the process. If it gets really bad, she goes to the master bath and lays on the floor. At the least, she has followed the instructions of all the talking weather heads. She takes cover in a small, windowless room.
For the last two years we have considered doing the Southwest Desert area during the months of January and February. I think all this rain has convinced me that we will be making that journey next Winter.
Otherwise, not a lot of going on around home. Was able to get in one day of house building for the week. Friends just purchased a new travel trailer which we hoped to check out today, but think we’ll wait for better weather. Looking forward to some great traveling adventures with them.
I hear more thunder. The satellite TV just went out. Sally’s headed for the bathroom. Think I’ll just take another nap.......jc
