Day Five and Counting

Today is the fifth day in a row we’ve had a steady rain.  This storm is really causing problems in other parts of California.  There have been a number of mud slides and some people have had to be rescued from swollen rivers.

The forecast calls for even heavier rains today and tonight and finally ending sometime tomorrow.  I was beginning to think we should start building an ark :)

The winds have also been quite strong, but we’re nice and protected in our little camping spot.  We’re in a valley and there are enough trees around us to keep those nasty winds from bothering me.  I am very grateful for that.

I sure hope our boys don’t have any flight delays.  It snowed yesterday in Minnesota and Wisconsin.  Korey has a layover in Denver where it is currently snowing.  That’s the problem with traveling in winter.  You never know what the weather will do to your travel plans.  Hopefully, it will all work out.

Korey is scheduled to arrive at 11:11 p.m. tonight.  I made the arrangements so have no one to blame but myself.  I don’t normally stay up that late :)  I tried to time it so they wouldn’t have to take an extra vacation day.

Eric is scheduled to arrive at 8:05 p.m. tomorrow night.  I couldn’t work it so they arrived on the same day.  It would have cost an extra $100 to have Korey come tomorrow, too.  So, we get to go to the airport two nights in a row.  At least they’re both leaving on the same day.

I’m not complaining, though.  I’d gladly go to the airport several times to have my boys with me for Christmas!

We’ve just been laying low.  I’ve done some baking, cooking and cleaning.  We ran a few errands yesterday.  I can’t wait to see the sun again!

We’ve been monitoring things closely for leaks.  So far we haven’t had any problems from our previous leaky spots.  Yesterday water began dripping from the TV antenna in the ceiling above the bed.  It’s a very slow drip, but Kevin will definitely have to check it out once it stops raining.  For now, we have a baggie catching the water.  Luckily, it’s a very minor leak.  About a tablespoon’s worth of water in 24 hours.
