Just too wet.......
After another night of rain we began to see patches of blue sky appear overhead Sunday morning, and I was pretty sure I would be working, and I did, but only for an hour. It was just too wet to do anything else other than empty the trash cans from the rental house on the hill behind the park we call 'Fairwinds', and pick up some storm debris. By 11 am I was home, so TLE and I decided to drive into Newport to buy a few things at Walmart, the main item being a new mattress topper for our bed. That was the extent of our outdoor activity for Sunday, and by mid afternoon it was raining once again. Based on the current weather forecast it does not appear I will be working Monday due to more rain.
On the 'leveling' front I am happy to report that the Newell is still completely level 5 weeks after our efforts to level our site pad from front to back. On the patio awning front it has not been deployed for 10 days now, and I'm not sure when we will be able to do so in the near future due to the winds getting up to 20 mph, or higher at least once a day. We actually had winds in the mid 50's Saturday night/Sunday morning.
We had 13 departures from the park Sunday, which leaves just the 4 camp hosts in occupancy right now. This would be a perfect time to whittle down the 'to do' list for the park, except for the wall to wall rain. We have trimmed all the hedges now, it is too, too wet to do any mowing, or weed trimming, too wet to light our very large burn pile, and too wet to work on any of the minor electrical issues we have at a few pedestals. In short, it is just too wet.
As I write I have just been called off work once again due to rain, so it is time to get out a good book and do some reading.....thanks for stopping by!
