Some rainy weather, sunshine and friends from Ontario stopped by for a visit,

Where are we today ?
          According to the weather guessers we gonna have some brutal weather. But so far not much more than some morning rain showers and very cloudy skies for most of the day. 
This morning shopping in Desert Hot Springs
           The problem here in this area is they have no storm sewer systems. Because they very seldom get any rain. So when it rains, the sun baked soil causes water to flow where ever it wants. And guess what ?  It causes flooding, mud slides, road closures etc... They deal with it and then everything is good until the next time, maybe a year or two down the road.
         We just puttered around inside and got some (spring ?) cleaning done,  Washed and waxed most of our wood work for a few hours. Was a job that needed to be done and perfect weather for it.
major cloud cover for Palm Springs today
        Most of the day had rainy drizzle then we thought about heading outside to read around 3 pm as the sun came out.
        We had a surprise! Friends from Ontario Emile and Monique stopped by for a visit. They had just pulled in and set up this afternoon and looked us up. (they follow our blog).

        We chatted, shared stories and got caught up, a very nice social hour. The Palm Springs mountains did not appear from the cloud cover all day. We are still having more weather.
        Shortly after 4:30 pm the drizzle began again so they headed back home and we headed inside to whip up our dinner.
        Tonight a very tasty Italian Fettuccine Shrimp and a tossed salad, sure hit the spot. (not a great day for our Weber Q) for the recipe click the link HERE  or check my recipe blog on the sidebar at the top left side. So easy to do.

yummy
       That was our fun day here in the storm zone, not too bad and we have full hookups. All is good with us.
        Thanks for the visit and hope your had an AWESOME day too.

  1. Those clouds sure do look threatening. Glad you didn't have to worry about traveling with them looming in the distance.
