Rain Soaked.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It almost felt like we had been drugged when we woke up this morning. After recent nights of not sleeping properly we were having trouble to wake up. Kathy wanted something different for breakfast so I scrambled some eggs while she made the toast. Looking out the balcony door everything looked greyish and the Weather Channel was showing that we’d be having rain most of the day. 

Finishing our coffees at the computers shortly before 9:00 our concentration was suddenly interrupted by the approaching sound of thunder. Within minutes the rain started with an intensity that made it difficult to see the cars in the parking lot below our windows. 

Kathy spoke with Kylla this morning who said that because Sanford was home alone most of the day yesterday when she woke up this morning he was in bed with her instead of his own bed. Kathy told her we’d be over to do a favor for her mom tomorrow. 

Once lunch was finished we immediately washed the dishes because Kathy was scheduled to have a visitor. The appointed time of 1:30 came and went and it wasn’t until just before 2:00 that the phone rang to announce her arrival. Mary a nurse from “Healthy Heals” was here to work on Kathy’s feet because of her Diabetes. She blamed the rain for her delay saying there was a lot of standing water making traveling in the curb lanes difficult. She had just started working on Kathy when the rain became so intense against the windows it was hard to hear one another talking. 

It was nearly 2:30 when I called Kathie to tell her we were finally on our way. Since Ross’s car is still in Goderich and her daughter Christine left for vacation on Sunday Kathy and I volunteered to drive her to the hospital. 

It was after 3:00 when I dropped Kathy and Kathie at the front door of the hospital so they would stay fairly dry. I can’t ever remember this much rain falling in this area in a single day. Using the same rain gear that we travel with in the trailer my pants still managed to get damp. 

Ross had been move from the CCU to a regular patient room in the Cardio wing. Of course he was totally wired with a wireless heart monitor so that his progress could be watched. The earlier report that he could be going home today was false but they are now saying Wednesday or Thursday. After visiting for nearly two hours we noticed Ross was nodding off so we said we’d leave him rest and would be back another day. Again I had the girls wait by the entrance while I got the truck. This time my pants were more than a little damp from the rain. 

Knowing that Kathie doesn’t eat properly when she is alone Kathy and I had preplanned to take her out for supper. Stopping at Pizza Hut we enjoyed a salad and large Hawaiian pizza leaving us all well satisfied. The best part of the meal was the relaxed conversation we were having while there. 

It was nearly 7:00 when we dropped Kathie off and she knows we’ll be busy tomorrow but will call us if she has any problems. The rain finally stopped at 8:30 so we had ten minutes of sunshine before it set. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. only light rain here until 9 pm, and by then did not matter to us.

  2. I'm impressed that you only got a little wet in all that rain. I would have never remembered rain gear at all and I'd be soaked!
