Where are we today ?Last night was hot and humid, windows open, Fantastic fan running no blankets on the bed, and was so nice we had a great sleep.
But this morning when the sun came up the rain started, forecast says 100% chance of rain. And they were right we had rain, lotsa rain 100% of the day right until6 pm. It came down in buckets just poured all day long barely let up at all. Occasionally it did slow down to a light rain but that was about it. But hey, sure beats the cold and snow (we keep telling ourselves).
This is the first year in seven that we have not headed to Arizona where it seldom rains. They have had cool weather and a bit of rain but at least they get lotsa sunshine. No problem we have stuff to do, computing , reading and always something to do.
We have had a surge protector in our coach for a few years now, but lately it has been giving us a problem. A small storm (power outage) and it does its job by shutting down but not resetting itself unless I disconnect it for and hour or so. We have also had problems in various parks with high or low voltage problems but have been able to monitor and manually disconnect before damage is done.
So searching for something better we found one on sale at Camping World in Hammond. This morning I drive there in an torrential rain storm and pickup up a new one that monitors the electrical wiring at the pedestal, like improper wiring, power surges and high and low voltage. So before any major damage is done we picked up this (worthwhile as far as we are concerned) Surge Guard and power protection device. Portable easy to install, hooked it up easy peasy, so far we are impressed.

Well not outside weather and not gonna BBQ so we thought we would try out Hunt Brothers Pizza. Made fresh to order at the grocery on the corner in town. No charge toppings (we had 7) and we picked up a few chicken wings to add to it. Not too bad (not the best but certainly not the worst) and the price was right.
|Perfect supper for a rainy day.|
Not so hot and humid now and much quieter in our coach without the heavy rainfall.
We just gonna kick back and take it easy, maybe watch a movie and hope the rain forecast for tomorrow does not happen quite so much. Have had enough rain for a while.
Thanks for stopping in and taking a peak. Hope you are dry and warm out there, wherever you are.
