About halfway through our campfire, the wind started to pick up so we decided to make quick work of our dessert and head inside. We had heard that it was supposed to rain around midnight, so we stowed the chairs away for the night and secured the wood under the cement table.
Just about the time that we shut everything down and fell off to sleep, things started to rock and roll...literally. First the wind started rocking the motorhome from side to side and our new Cyclone Vent started spinning like a whirlybird. I figured it was only a matter of time before it took flight and ended up in Tucson.
Once the wind was in full force, then the hail came down, it sounded like we were taking on artillery rounds from above. Shortly after the hail, the rain came full force for the much of the rest of the night. Needless to say, neither of us got much sleep!
So this morning's decision is do we stay again tonight for what could be more sleep deprivation or drive the short distance to our home and batten down the hatches? The sun is out now, there has been no rain so far, but the clouds to the northeast do look ominous.

The wind is still blowing like crazy, I just saw a chihuahua fly past the window as I was writing this post...just kidding, no need to send comments about what happened to the dog.

I am so pleased to welcome two new friends to our blog: Levonne who describes herself as an American woman who is transitioning to living a Canadian life and Barak who lives in Xenia, Ohio and captures his thoughts and interests on his blog. Welcome aboard and glad to have you along!
With that, I wish you all a happy and enjoyable weekend and I hope that your weather is not nearly as eventful as ours.
