Rain? No. Work? Yes!

8:08 am - Wednesday - January 6th - Seal Rock, OR - 48° F, 94% humidity, wind 8 mph out of the east by southeast......heavy cloud cover, rain today with a forecast high of 49° F.  On this date in 2016 we were watching a rain storm come across the Anza Borrego desert toward our boondock site just off Rock House Road........↴


There was no rain Tuesday morning.  Since there was no rain Tuesday morning I worked.  I worked for 2 hours.....a rarity lately, but a welcome change.  Blake and I spent our two hour shift spraying more of the 'Moss Be Gone' solution on the roofs of some of our outbuildings.  This stuff does not remove the moss, as the name might suggest, but impedes its growth, and slowly kills what is there.  The only way to remove the moss would be to either power wash it off (probably not too good for the shingles), or remove it piece by piece by hand.  Since we are strongly discouraged from getting up on any of the roofs here at SRRVC that would not be an option, so what is killed remains.

I was home shortly after 12 pm.  TLE switched shifts with Gale (Blake's wife) so Gale could go to the dentist in the afternoon, so she (TLE) went to work from 2 pm to 4 pm......as a result I had the Newell to myself for a couple of hours.  The wind freshened significantly just after I returned home, and continued gusting all afternoon.

Another book was finished Tuesday afternoon, and I began another almost immediately.  By the time TLE returned from work a little after 4 pm, it was already dark due to the heavy cloud cover.  The winds continued to blow bringing in the next round of rain which began pelting our roof around 9 pm, and that rain continued all night long, and continues as I write this morning (Thursday).  

As one might expect, I have been called off work (Thursday), but this time I was actually called off work Wednesday evening due to the forecast showing 90+% chance of rain all day Thursday....oh well.

By the way, our new Dometic refrigerator door panels are slated to arrive today (Thursday) via......wait for it......FedEx!  On a positive note I received a text message notification this morning advising our door panels were on the truck, and out for delivery from Lincoln City (just north of Newport), so maybe, just maybe they'll arrive today as promised.
