Finally, something to blog about besides Jim.
We experienced our first monsoon storm yesterday and I will say, one is enough. But I’m sure we’ll have more before we get out of here.
Yesterday afternoon, Jim took Scooter out and had only been back in the house about five minutes when I said – isn’t that our awning? The wind was howling. Weatherman said 50 mph. We ran outside to get the awning put up and the rain came DOWN! It took every muscle and ounce of strength that we had to get the awning up but we made it.
We were completely soaked – in fact my shoes are still wet this morning. It was incredible to see that much water coming out of the sky.
We also lost power for 3 hours but since the storm cooled the temps down it was survivable. If it had gone on much longer we would have turned the generator on. One of the many good things about having an RV. The news just reported that 20 poles were knocked down here in Apache Junction.
After the storm we gathered outside to make sure everyone was okay and to survey the damage. Our corner survived nicely but other parts of the park were not so lucky.
We took a couple of pictures of some of the damage.
This is what’s left of Ron and Ruth’s carport/patio awning.
Al and Wilma’s awning. They are headed back from Wyoming to get started on the repair work.
This tree is outside the park wall on Ironwood.
We see the surgeon on Tuesday and have high hopes that Jim will get rid of his drain and we can start making some plans.
