Damp

The weather report since Christmas night:

Christmas night =  rain, sun gone

Thursday = rain, high 55, sun gone

Friday = rain, high 55, sun gone

Saturday = rain, high 62, sun goner

The average temperature for this time of year in the Rio Grande Valley is 74 degrees, the average rain for December is .01, we've had 1.65" so far and it's not done yet.

One thing I have noticed with all this rain is the Mel is not waterproof. The longer I'm confined to the interior the smaller Mel gets. I'm hoping the sun will expand Mel back to the original size.

With all the rain activity has been limited since Christmas. I did make a trip to Walmart, but that's about it. I hope next week is better weather wise.

  1. Rain gets old really quick. That's why I could never live in the Pacific Northwest. Hope that sun returns for your pleasure shortly.

  2. Know how you feel, we had almost 24 hours of continuous downpours that finally ended overnight.

  3. Can you say "cabin fever"??? I think you've found our missing rain. We've had cold freezing fog, but should end the year as the driest one on record for Eugene. Cold, though. In the 40's for high, and 30's for lows, so it's just cold all the time! Supposed to get some partial sun today and tomorrow, so we'll hope they are right. Dress warm, wear layers, be dry, go outside and enjoy yourself. Well, maybe for a little while, anyway?

    1. Rust has begun to set in. If I could figure a way you would be getting it back.

  4. We aren't sure if we prefer all the snow or the rain. When I left Ohio yesterday, it was 45. A heat wave for sure! It is gorgeous here in Ohio right now. Hope you don't float away.

    1. I've anchored Mel to the patio. I think we both prefer lots of sunshine.

    2. Aransas Pass is having its worst winter in any local persons memory. This is NOT what we came south to enjoy. Stay warm anyway.

  7. Sorry to hear about all the rain and cold. We haven't had anymore rain but the temps are still low in the mid 60's. But I'll take that. Sure hope the New Year brings you all better weather.

  8. Don't worry the sun will soon shine down your way. I sure do love the Valley, maybe this will be the year I make a return trip after so many years. It could be worst...it could be snowing :-)
