Tuesday, January 8, 2012—More Bad Weather

A strong wind blew last night with some rain, and we awoke to a patio covered with leaves from nearby trees.  The wind abated and the light rain quit about mid-morning, with a forecast of severe wind, rain, lightning, and thunderstorms for late in the evening.

Back at the resort, we joined other residents of “circle” for happy hour, foregoing “Cards and Games Night” because of a forecast for really bad weather.

A quiet evening in the RV followed, interrupted by a couple of power outages and heavy rain.
