I knew there was a cold front expected to come through last night because the low temperatures were supposed to drop down to the mid-30s from where they were the day before which was in the 60s, and it definitely did. About 6 o'clock while I was eating dinner the wind suddenly started blowing hard enough to rock the trailer, and since it was coming off the Gulf it was hitting me broadside on my starboard and for a while I was in mortal fear of foundering or capsizing .... That being all the nautical terms I know other than "shiver me timbers" and "ARRRRR" I'll revert back to RV speak.
The wind blew really hard all night and the rain came down in buckets, it was still blowing when I got up this morning but the rain had tapered off somewhat. If I hadn't been so lazy I would've gone out yesterday and put down my rear stabilizer jacks, but I didn't so I had to put up with a lot more rocking and rolling from the Arctic Fox than I needed to.
Laying in bed last night listening to the windblown rain pound against the side of the Arctic Fox I thought I might wake up this morning and find a leak or two where the rain had been forced into the Arctic Fox, but I didn't find anything which really surprised me as hard as the wind was blowing all that rain against the Arctic Fox.
Because of all the inclement weather today I was forced to take a day off and spend the entire day indoors relaxing and in deep contemplative thought, both of which I happen to excel at. I'm normally more relaxed than a three toed sloth on sleeping pills, and can contemplate for hours on end without the least amount of fatigue.
So today became a down day, which I was sorely in need of because of my normally hectic schedule, and the only thing I accomplished all day was the writing of this blog post, which upon rereading appears to be more of an embarrassment than an accomplishment.
