Where are we today ?
New Hamburg Ontario
New Hamburg Ontario
Woke up about 5:30 this morning and I think I hear rain on the roof. So put my ears on and looked out the window, sure enough lotsa rain and pretty high winds and rocking our coach too. The farmers need the rain for sure, we can almost see the corn growing.
After a bit I took a short drive into Plattsville to see if anything happening there, nope same old. Minor detour thou on the way the road was blocked with hug downed tree, yep its windy. So around the block (about 5 miles here in the country).

|Came back about 20 minutes later and the road is clear now|
Well got back home and said to Suzie better see if we can roll up our awning. Even though it was secured pretty good, the wind was playing havoc with it. So managed to get Dennis to help us roll it up, that was a chore. Got it done but not quite right, will have to wait until the rain and wind stop, to straighten things out. This weather made the 45f (8c) temperature feel much colder too.
Soon as we got this done, Suzie says, to me "That's a strange place to park a hay wagon". It was in the ditch no more than 30 ft from the front of our coach. Well I know for a fact that yesterday there was three parked in the field a few hundred feet away. Looks like the wind decided to move this heavy wagon, good thing the ditch was there to slow it down. Who woulda thought the wind was that strong? Dennis went out and chocked all the wheels so they won't move anymore.
|there was three wagons a long way away earlier|
|it almost came right thru the ditch, musta been moving a good clip|
Now a bit later a quick trip to New Hamburg and passed yet another downed tree in town, I think it just barely missed this car too.
|yes we are having wind|
Ok that's enough downed trees for one day, back home, but its still pouring rain and windy as heck. But we are comfy inside. Suzie reading and me computing, doing some back up and fiddling with my Mac Book Pro. Looks like my DVD burner is not working so I think on Monday will give Apple a shout and take it in for some warranty work, two weeks left on my extended warranty.
Now Omer he's not too bright today, laying outside in the pouring rain, soaking wet, then he eventually lies partly under our coach. He has too much very wet fur to come inside. The garage door is open and his lazyboy chair and pillow is in there all nice and dry, not sure why he insists on laying in the cold rain.

Shortly after 4 o'clock Suzie went and picked up Dad to visit her mother when she will be awake about 5:30 until 6:30 for supper. She was sitting a chair for lunch when he and Rose were there even able to eat by herself, and at 4:30 today she went for a walk, making progress in leaps and bounds, so nice to see.
Suzie got back home just before 7 o'clock after dropping off her Dad at home then we heated up some more leftover stuff and had another tasty feast. Then Omer came in the house for a while and laid quietly on his mat, after shaking water off his coat all over the kitchen. Sorry these last couple pics kinda got lost in cyberspace somewhere, but no big deal anyway.
Thanks for stopping by once again, I think the rain is finally stopping now.
