As we start the last week of the year we have been invaded. It's a parakeet invasion. They sit quietly on the wires, but when they take to the air each one has a piece to say and none of them are quiet about it. It's amazing how much noise hundreds of parakeets can make. Notice the blue skies. This is a one day event.
After a one day visit from the sun it clouded up late yesterday afternoon and it began to rain about 10 pm. So far we have added another 1.15" to the monthly total and it continues to fall. We are now approaching 3" of rain in an area where the normal monthly rainfall average is 1.09". Current temperature at 2:30 pm is 45 and that looks like out high for the day.
Tuesday - New Years Eve
This is my last post of the year. It's been a good year with many adventures over 8 states in the western part of the United States. As I wrap of the year I am contemplating changing my RV insurance policy for a yacht policy. This is based on the fact that it continues to rain here in the Rio Grande Valley. It started Sunday night at 10 pm and has not stopped since. We are now up to 2.84" in this "rain event" and it does seem to be nearing completion.
So I'll sign off and check Mel to see where I can place the marine navigational lights and get ready for the transformation.
Before I go, I want to than all my readers for following along with me this year and I wish the best for all of you in the new year.
