It’s raining here…in the High Desert of Southern California. And apparently, this kind of weather used to get Karen Carpenter “down”. But not me. Especially living in the desert. When you live in the desert, you tend to crave rain because it is so infrequent, even by Southern California standards.
We even get snow here. But just like the rain, it’s usually gone within 24-48 hours. This particular rain is part of the “Pineapple Express” coming in from the area of the Hawaiian Islands. So, because of the way this weather system is positioned as it comes into the west coast, it can be non-stop for awhile. What EVER! I enjoy it. Of course, we’re not down on the coast and elsewhere, where the rain causes mudslides and other undesirable things. We just have to worry about flash floods. But not to worry. This is a gentle storm, hardly any wind or high volumes of rainwater. Just enough.
Of course it’s messing with my motorhome solar project progress. I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel relative to completion, but it’s hard to do “solar” work when it’s raining and the sun is nowhere to be found. But that’s okay, I can use a break.
So what else is going on? Well, our little retail trophy and awards business is cooking right along. It’s our 12th year and we’re pretty busy, but it is interfering with my addiction. You see, I’ve become addicted to all the full-time RVer blogs we follow in preparation for our Great Escape in 2016. It’s ridiculous! We receive an order and send it to production. That’s me. I do the computer layout, set up the laser equipment and click the “start” button. While the machine is running the job, I rush to my other computer and read blogs.
“Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old”…
Happy trails to you.
