“Gonna bang you like a screen door blowing in a hurricane.”
I laughed so hard when I first heard that!
Do you know how long I had to wait for a good storm so I could use that title? Months. MONTHS, I tell you. (If you recall, during the last big storm in Texas Hill Country I was pleasantly, fortunately, blessedly in another state.)
But this is Texas, so I knew it would only be a matter of time until there was a big storm wherever I was at. Like all things they do big in Texas, storms are at the top of the list. And so is the flooding. Many of you may recall the flooding of two years ago.
Leave it to me to find another RV park with a river that floods. Mind you, I’m on a completely. different. river. this time around. Ya, like that mattered.
This is a series of photos taken at three intervals, over about 20 hours. (Click below to see the photos.)
Other than that, the weather is pretty nice at the moment… the temperature is in the upper 80’s and it’s sunny.
Meanwhile, I’m working the sales job. I work in a new town every few weeks. Some towns go well, some do not go at all. I only get paid when a town closes so it is a bit of a gamble, but my boss is awesome. He’s very supportive and a great mentor.
For this winter I had a plan to work in Texas, mostly in Hill Country moving toward the coast – because that’s where it’s usually warm and dry. However, NOAA is predicting and unusually cold and wet winter in the southern states, while the northern states will see warmer, drier winter:
Forecasters at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center issued the U.S. Winter Outlook today favoring cooler and wetter weather in Southern Tier states with above-average temperatures most likely in the West and across the Northern Tier. This year’s El Niño, among the strongest on record…
Did you see the maps? No, really. Did you see the NOAA weather maps?? I’m not staying in Texas for this winter! I’m heading north, maybe north east. Feel free to join me. As soon as I finish this current town, I’m heading for warmer, northern pastures. Let’s all pray the meteorologists are much more accurate this time than usual.
