Rainy Day

We had torrential rains and revolving thunderstorms from about 2:00 a.m. this morning. It continued into the daylight hours so no walk for me this morning. During the morning we also had some wind gusts. We watched our neighbours pack up and leave. YUCK! What a day to have to move. If we have a choice, we don’t move when it’s raining especially in something like a monsoon! That’s one of the reasons I hate making campground reservations. If you’ve made them you almost have to move.

I took today's photo out the back window of the RV.

Most of the morning I just surfed the internet. Luckily the rainstorm hadn’t interfered with our satellite reception but Gordon said it was down during the night when the rain was heaviest. Our high today only reached 16C (60F). Needless to say it was not a nice Ottawa summer day!

About the only thing I did today was make a batch of cornbread. The oven managed to heat the RV up. Other than that I finished my Rosamunde Pilcher book. I think I’ll have no problem finishing my list of books that I have to return to the library on July 28th. In fact, I may have to get more.

I emailed the library in Lindsay and got a reply stating that for people not paying taxes to the city the charge is $30/year but they will pro-rate for the 5 weeks that I’m there. So, I’ll be able to get books there as well. Now if they would just do that in the U.S. when we’re there!
