WILD Weather

Today is one of those days that rvers dread! The line of storms that rolled in off of the Gulf of Mexico may end up being worse than many of the tropical storms that have blown thru Florida through the years. I’ve been glued to the tv since 5:30am when the thunder and lightning woke me up. Well, that and Kozmo who was shaking like a leaf in between Barbie and I. Poor thing, she really doesn’t handle thunder, lightning and hard rain very well at all. I kept flip-flopping between a couple of channels and got really good coverage. At our location here in Rock Crusher Canyon, which is about a mile to the east of US Route 19, half way between Homosassa and Crystal River, we have had a ton of rain and a little wind. The wind/tornadoes is what had me concerned obviously. From our site we are not aware of any trees down or damages to rvs, but now that the rain has halted and radar seems to show all is past us, we are gonna go out for a ride around the park and the area for a look/see.

A supposed tornado traveled over Valrico where our stix-n-brix house is so we’ll call the neighbors later and see if all is well down that way. The storms have been flat wicked and we hope our blogger buddies are ok around the area: Margie and Roger and Carolyn in Davenport, Myrddin (Jim & Linda) in Orange Park, Duane and Debbie in Ocala, Donna and Ralph in Largo, Rich and Donna in Wauchula, Jim and Dee also in Wauchula, and Donna and Stu, on road to either Clermont or Bushnell. From what I’ve seen on tv all of those areas have had or will have this bad stuff pass their locations. I recently saw a picture on tv of a what looked like 30 foot or so travel trailer blown on it’s side in the Largo area. The power cord, water hose and sewer hose were still connected as it sat on it’s side-so sad. Hope no one was hurt.

That’s the latest from here. No pictures today-nothing pretty about this day------yet.

‘Til next time……

We are fine here in Davenport, but it has been a scary two days around here. Yesterday was actually worse - strong wind and rain. Thankfully no tornado here today. Glad you all are AOK too.

Okay here too just tired of rain and need to get out of my small space. Sedona has troubles with thunder too. She hides every chance she gets.

Jeff, I'll be ready for a medium and if I'm not driving, maybe a large. LOL

Stay safe and dry.

Thanks for thinking of us. Lots and lots of rain here in Cross Creek, but nothing serious. Glad to hear you and the others are all OK.

Kozmo gets to go to Hardees! She absolutely hit the jackpot when you adopted her!!
