Somewhere under the rainbow......

7:56 - Thursday - March 2nd - GNHS - 48° F, humidity 60%, wind 6 mph out of the west....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 66° F.  On this date in 2020 TLE and I had just arrived at Quechan Casino near Los Algodones when it began to rain....HARD.....↴

....and we woke up to rain Monday, three years later......

We had been up just a few minutes when it began to rain Monday morning, which was forecast.  High winds were also forecast for the same time period, but they never materialized.....thank goodness.  It rained for less than an hour, and then the sun came and went the rest of the day.  We kept expecting wind, but it never came....during the day time.  In the morning the wind was coming out of the south, but by 10 pm it was directly out of the north.....glad we stowed the patio awning, because that would have been bad.

Even though the winds never materialized during the day, it was bitter old all day long.  The only time it was not bitter cold was when I was dumping our black tank around 1 pm....the sun had come out from behind the this cloud cover, and made that task quite pleasant.  Nothing like good timing!

Near the end of the day it began to rain again.....the sun was hitting the landscape to the northwest, and suddenly a beautiful rainbow appeared, and we both ran outside to capture the moment....

....I think I like TLE's picture better, what do you think?  Anyway, it was a nice way to end our GNHS day.  I'm hoping nurse TLE will agree to remove my stitches Thursday, as I have missed being able to soak in the hot springs the past month whilst recovering from my two outpatient surgeries.

TLE and I continue to be in good health, and have yet to be infected by the Wuhan flu in the three years since this all began.  We continue to enjoy the benefits of living in extremely rural America both for the sake of our health, and mental well being.  In just 5+ weeks we will be hauling anchor and heading back north to our summer port. at Likely Place Gold and RV Resort.

Right now we have no advance bookings for Thursday, or Friday, but have bookings both Saturday and Sunday.  Hope we get some walkups Thursday and Friday.  Time to get ready to open the COA office!

Thanks for stopping by!
