I've been remiss in thanking my newest "follower"....Susan Bidniak. I'm sorry to have been so forgetful. So, THANK YOU Susan for joining the ranks of followers of this blog. I appreciate it very much !
I counted up the days on the calendar this morning until D-Day. That is....our departure day for our winter trip. We have 36 more days after today until we will be heading south for, hopefully, drier and warmer weather.
One of our destination points on this journey will be the greater Yuma, AZ area. Winterhaven, California to be exact, which is just across the AZ border and into California. We'll be at the Pilot Knob RV Park for about 5 days. In the meantime, we will "enjoy" our lake front property here in Tumwater, Washington. When we get copious amounts of rain in a relative short period of time, this mobile/RV park has 2 flooded areas where the road dips down. It will all drain away, but not until it stops raining so hard.
If you haven't paid attention to nation-wide weather reports, we here in the Pacific Northwest have been receiving lots and lots of rain. I repeat....lots and lots of rain. Not that I'm really complaining as it sure beats snow. Last winter we stayed here in Tumwater and....wouldn't you know it....we had record breaking amounts of snow for our area. So, the rain is tolerable. Except by Annie the Schnauzer.
Even though Annie was born and raised here in the northwest, she is not a fan of the rain. She is reluctant to go outdoors for those necessary potty walks. Sometimes it seems more like she's going for a drag and not a walk. So, Annie is hoping for a break in the weather....and soon. Unfortunately, she is going to be disappointed as 2 more storm systems are waiting off the coast to blow in over the next few days.
It may be time to get the row boat out and be prepared.
Until next time......so long for now!
