Rain, Rain and Lots of Wind

It seemed to have rained most of the night and was raining hard when Michael got up. Needless to say, Miss Emmi wasn't exactly thrilled about having to go out!

The rain let up enough for us to take a quick walk, the ground is spongy and there was even some running water in one of the smaller washes.

Doesn't this look like a grumpy Montana cowboy? He said he was cold!
I got a little quilting done this morning then came inside to make a pot of soup and put another loaf of bread on to rise. Put the bread in the noisy generator run convection oven and we headed into Bouse to see if our mail was there and it was--a big old box of it--thanks LoraLee! The low spots in the highway were starting to fill with water and I bet after the huge downpour we had late this afternoon the washes were flooded. Had a delicious lunch of homemade soup and bread while we read all the old newspapers and mail from home, even some late Christmas cards.

It rained all day long and the wind was gale force! I went out to the trailer and quilted for about an hour when the wind really started to blow. The trailer was rocking with the wind, then one really huge gust hit and at that point I decided I did not want to be in that trailer any more. I shut all the machines down and tried to open the door against the wind and Mike was on the other side of the door telling me he thought I should come in the motor home--I totally agreed!

We spent the rest of the day reading and playing with Emmi. Occasionally the wind and rain would let up enough for me to take her outside to do business but she wasn't too interested in getting blown away either. The forecast is calling for more rain and wind tomorrow, ugh!


  1. Wow.. glad you guys are hunkered down and safe! Things look tuff all over the country as far as weather goes. We are due for some icy rain and then frigid cold again. Not fun.

  2. On a day like you had today I am happy to be at home. It was sunny and not cold at all. Most days I envy you though because you are in the area that we called our winter home. (the North side of Tom Wells road between Quartzsite and Blythe.) That part of Tom Wells is closed to camping now. Our friends are now parked on the South side of Tom Wells. They like it there too but it's too close to the highway.
