Weather- Very Wet and Very Windy

The weather here has done a 180' turn. Up until Monday evening you couldn't ask for nicer weather - blue skies, highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the seventies. That all began to changed Monday night as the lows dropped to the mid 50's with highs only around 61' and the winds increasing from 5-10 MPH to 25-35 with gust as high as 51 MPH. The rain and wind has not stopped since Mon. night, sometimes it has been light and at other times it has been downpours. The forecast for Thur. is continued rain and lighter winds - 15 to 20 MPH.

Tue morning when Judy and I woke up after a very bumpy night in the 5'ver.  We  didn't think it would be a good idea to leave the SAT dish in the up position on the roof so we placed it in the stow position along with lowering the TV ant. Even with the TV ant lowered we can still pick up a few digital stations. In the evening we go over to the extremely nice camper lounge at the Sea Mist office and watch the MLB play-off games on the 50" wall TV.  Wed we did brave the nasty weather to keep "get together" meetings with some of our friends from the days that we lived here. We really enjoyed seeing Dee & Ed from our neighborhood and Cindy from Judy's Sunday school class.

High surf and windy

Today is going to be a sit in the Rv and read day!! Judy has said she is not getting out today come hell or high water. Me, well I am leaving if the water gets high. 

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.
Next Blog: Monday


  1. We were happy to escape most of that rain while in NC. It rained all night on Sunday night, and cleared up Monday by 10 am. Perfect!

  2. I was looking forward to a Cards/Braves series this week. What's wrong with your Braves? Every year they kick butt in the regular season but can't seem to win a playoff series. Go Cards! (See you guys Sunday.)

    1. That is the Bobby Cox legacy! I am going to call MCAS Cherry Point and check on staying another week.
