The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here September 17th.

 

 

 

 

 

Rain must fall. So said Henry Wadsworth Longfellow many years ago.

 

In my almost 25 years of full-time RVing, there has been little rain. I suppose all those years I’ve managed to remain 99% rain-free.

 

For many years I have summered in Northwest Washington. I do so because it’s scenically beautiful, people are very friendly, very few bugs and the climate is most agreeable, rarely getting over 75 degrees.

 

I’ve come to learn however, that right around October 1st it’s time to head south as that date signifies in general the beginning of the rainy season. Every once in a while it starts a little earlier… which appears to be the case this year. Within the last 48+ hours, there has been substantial rain.

 

 

 

 

Here’s a photo taken out of my motorhome front window yesterday morning around 7:15 AM…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since I hear it so infrequently, it’s really kind of nice hearing it on my roof..at least for a little while. 🙂
My 10 day forecast however mentions rain showers, light rain and just plain rain for several of those days. A lot of years ago, I would have just headed south to escape the rain. However, in today’s situation when campground reservations must be made months in advance if you want to be sure of getting in, that’s no longer the case. So, I guess I’ll just have to accept a little more rain in my life for the short future. I’m scheduled to continue my journey south in another seven days.
Here’ s a brief video of some of yesterday’s rain as taken from my bedroom window…

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photo and video.

 

 

 

I hope you will enjoy the future blog postings.

Forecast for today is partly sunny and 68 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!
