I'd like to set fire to the rain!

It's been pouring for about 1.5 hours with no end in site! It's 3:30 in the morning! This is the first time I don't like my hybrid. Way too noisy in the bunks.

My attitude about rain has changed. Last year, our region of Texas had multiple weeks of temperatures above 110 and multiple weeks of no rain. Forest fires got started daily, smoke clouds everywhere. A temperature of only 105 felt cool.

Now, I like rain ... but I prefer it not to occur on a camping trip.

We had rain all day yesterday, and temps in the mid 50's through about 5pm- Which I was OK with- but when the rain stopped, the winds picked up and temps dropped into the high 40's.

I kept asking myself- Is this really June 1st?

Probably the only other thing that can be worse than rain pelting down on your end bunks could be if you are camped on a site with no grass/cement. The last rainy camp trip we experienced was on a dirt site. There was just enough of a slant that the water flowed right below our steps! The mat acually helped, but what a mess!

Hope the rain lets up for you and you can enjoy the rest of your trip

It really came down. Radar had all those dark reds and oranges which you know aren't great. Bad storm but we survived. Lol. So far it's turning into a great day.

And for the record, a large number of local beaches are closed today because of all the runoff water going into the oceans and bays. Our sewer site has a concrete border around it that's about 2-3" high. It was overflowing when we woke up, that's how much rain we got between 2-5 am.
