Rain, Rain, Go Away………

We arrived here on Thursday.  There was a little bit of rain in the final stretches of the drive.  Fortunately, we were able to set up without it raining.  But shortly after we were set up, the rains came…..and it rained, and it rained, and it rained.   This is Arizona, the land of sunshine.  It rained Thursday night.  It rained more all day and night Friday.  It rained on Saturday.  And on Sunday it was mostly cloudy with periodic rain.  We had the entire month’s worth of rain in our first four days here.  All totaled, there was about 2 inches of rain here in the desert where we are camped.  We were feeling a bit like hermits holed up in the motor home.  Gary got in plenty of football watching.  I played a lot on my new computer.

We were able to get out for the Sunday night ice cream social, a regular event at Escapees RV parks.  And finally today, the sun was out – not a cloud in the sky.  We went over to the clubhouse in the morning for the power walking video.  Thereafter, we washed the motor home and the car.  We had not been in a park since Salt Lake City that would allow us to wash them.  It was around three hours of a lot of scrubbing and wiping for both of us.


  1. We spent the weekend indoors as well, but this week will be great. Enjoy!

  2. This is Dennis & Carol Hill. We will be there mid December. Thanks for taking care of getting all the rain out of the way for us. See ya in Qsite.
