Bang…Bang…Bang…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Morgan Hill, California.

My eye surgeon at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California wants me back for a post-operation examination. I had cataract surgery done there on both eyes in October and November, 2014. My appointment is scheduled for March 28th. Palo Alto is only about 40 miles from my current location. I’ll sit here until then when I’ll drive the Bronco to Palo Alto.

 

I first published to posting on March 21, 2011…

 

Yesterday morning at 9:00 AM, in the middle of a drenching rainstorm..who’s that banging on my door?

Yes, I’m still camped at the Thousand Trails RV Resort in Morgan Hill, California and it was a park ranger who handed me a piece of paper that said…

In my Blog of march 15th, I identified one must cross this bridge to enter the campground…

 

 

 

 

Several miles upstream of this bridge is the Uvas Reservoir which after heavy rains spills over and into Uvas Creek. According to the most recent newsletter for this park, back on February 25th the creek was flowing over this bridge and it was closed to all traffic for eight hours effectively stranding all the campers.

 

 

 

 

It started raining last Friday, rained all through Saturday and finally stopped around noon yesterday. Normally Uvas Creek just barely has water it, but yesterday rose to within a foot of the bridge. Here’s a picture I took of the down-stream flow…

 

 

 

 

Just upstream of this entrance bridge is another bridge going to another section of the park. The folks on the other side are now stranded until the water decides to retreat…

 

 

 

 

My site didn’t fare all that badly, just a small collection of water behind the Bronco…

 

 

 

 

While other campers discovered they were in possession of waterfront sites…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After being cooped up in the motorhome for 2.5 days of heavy rains, it was nice to get out and take my normal two-mike walk. More rain is in the forecast for the next seven days. It hasn’t started to rain yet…but the forecast for today is “A couple of thunderstorms.”

It is said…”Into each life a little rain must fall”… but enough all ready! I’m no longer used to a lot of rain! In past years of my full-time RVing life, I’ve gone a whole year without getting hit by one rain drop!

 

 

 

 

Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with other past blogs.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was  sunny and 70 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 71 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
