Worth Writing About.

Our Location today is Apopka, Florida.

Something that I have always loved to do was play with numbers as a fact I would create problems just so I could use my math skills to solve them. When we started writing our blog post almost sixteen months ago I never thought that I would continue watching numbers. Last night right after posting our blog for the day I wanted to read the blogs we follow but a number caught my eye so I immediately snapped this picture seconds before it changed. That was the number on our site meter last night.
We also watched the weather channel before going to sleep telling us we wouldn’t be doing much today as they were predicting a hard line of storms and a day filled with rain. When we got up at 7:30 we figured they had messed up again but by 8:00 that prediction was right on the money.
At times the rain was hitting our roof with such an intensity we were having a hard time hearing one another talking to the other. Then it would turn to a light drizzle making you think the worst was over before the darkening skies would change those ideas very quickly.
Baked beans on toast for lunch. But you can see we each had a donut  to top it off.
By lunch time there were a number of RVs that were lined up in the driveway to the park after thinking twice about driving under such conditions. As the afternoon progressed water puddles were growing into miniature lakes throughout the park making me think that I might have to get our inflatable kayak out of the basement just in case things got any worse.
 All through this time we passed our time getting caught up doing work on the computers. The forecast had put us into a watch until 3:00 this afternoon but moments after 2:30 the rain just stopped and a steady but light breeze started.
Another couple we met out for a walk.

At 4:00 looking outside we noted that the water accumulation was practically gone with only small puddles remaining. We decided we needed to stretch our legs and get our bodies moving so we left for a walk. Kathy decided that she wanted to see outside the park so heading out the gate we followed a single lane road that bordered the back of the park. There were a few homes along the road that led back to a few businesses but they were not what was important.

Along the way we found some beautiful plants that Kathy would later identify on the computer and birds that were singing cheerful songs now that the rain had ended. They soon took cover and stopped singing not because of another storm but because there were other birds that were out looking for their dinners.

Threatening skies cut our walk short.
As we watched the sky we saw the black clouds continuing to threaten us with more rain but it held off. Back inside the park we walked around the inside until we got back to our trailer where it was time to make supper. Kathy baked the potatoes and made the three bean salad while I barbecued the Johnsonville Brats.

Tomorrow the skies will be clear but slightly cooler so we’ll be finding something interesting to do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You have a "system" for playing penny slot machines.


  1. glad to see you two are still having a was a hot one here today thankfully we did get a bit of rain this evening...we sure needed it...

  2. So glad your weather did not get any worse. Rainy days are a good excuse to do just what you did. ....chill. The other couple you met is also in San Diego...too funny! I will have to post a picture of them from So Cal. Actually our daughter gave me the yard birds for my 60 th birthday because I love birds and she said they reminded her of us. Joe and I call them the "old crows". They have traveled with us now for 17 months!

    The bottle brush shrub is really pretty!

  3. A rainy day once in a while is a good reason to rest and chill out. You sure had some good food to tide you over!!

  4. Love the rainy days, can get caught up with other stuff, and cleans the dust off our rigs as well.
