Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.
What do you get when you combine lots of walking, lots of fresh air and the pattering sound of rain on the roof most of the night? Two people who are shocked to have slept so soundly until after 8:00 this morning. We couldn’t sleep with all our windows open last night because of the constant change of direction from the rain but the few that were open was enough to fill the trailer with fresh air. When we finally got to the kitchen for breakfast we had to talk to one another in raised voices in order to hear ourselves above the wind that was whistling through the windows.
While having breakfast we watched our neighbours attempt to put their awnings up only to roll them up within minutes. It seemed they couldn’t hear the wind or figure it would stop. When I looked at the sky and saw it start to fill with clouds the first thing I did when I turned on my laptop was to check The Weather Network. The forecast indicated a risk of severe thunderstorms with high winds. Further checking the radar screen showed a heavy concentration of storm clouds heading our way.
Without too much planned we thought of accomplishing the necessities at Home today. Since I wanted to get the laundry accomplished today Kathy quickly made Homemade French Onion Soup. It tasted wonderful as most everything she makes.
|The wind finally slowed this evening.|
I used the truck to drive over to the Laundry Room because I also had garbage to get rid of as well. Seeing the sky turning black I simply went straight to the laundry room to get things started. After I’d gotten all my wash started I was about walk the trash over to the disposal area when the rain started. If I had gone any sooner I’d have been soaked. The rain was on and off the rest of the afternoon just like the forecast had indicated but with the heavy winds gusting over 35 MPH other people started coming in to do their laundry instead of being on the golf course.
Back Home it didn’t take long to get the clothes put away but the high wind issue made it impossible to grill our supper. Since it was still frozen we simply went to the 19th Hole Restaurant where they did the cooking for us. As usual the service and food were great but the company was the best. Our waitress said because of the high winds and lack of golfers they’d had a slow afternoon. By the time we were leaving the restaurant was filling up fast.
On the 6 o’clock News there were reports of trees that had been toppled due to the high winds. Tomorrow we’ll get more things accomplished at settling in to our Home. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
