    Yep 730, we finally got a good one also. The catfish were on the dam dancing and the dog ran under the house. Roosters were crowing and the well bucket was trying to catch the drops. A rabbit just ran across the yard with a lifejacket on and the worms in the ground were finally able to dig out. Seeds that I had sown in early spring are starting to come up and the lawn mower just cranked itself. Found a leak still in the MH that I had paid to have fixed a year ago. Well, that was a good thing it didn't leak when it didn't rain. Recond it's still in warranty? :laugh: Finally had enough water to take a bath but all that washed of dirt clogged the tub drain. And it's still raining :)

    Chelse,
    You know that your baths are outside in the big ole wash tub and it doesn't have any drain, just dump it out and start over. :)
    BTW, saw some bad weather up in your neck of the woods. Hope all is ok, think it was near Mobile.

    From here in No. Cal. around the foothills of the Seirras, not much rain but lots of sun. The weather has been great but sure do need the wet stuff. When it has rained it just means one less day of watering! Down in So. Ca. they are having a horrible time. Santa Ana winds and all don't help. I heard it might not be over til the first days of Nov.
    :(

    Re: falling from the sky

    Archer, no problem with the tub baths. Just plant my tomatos in them after a bath and don't even have to fertilize arter the grandkids get through with theirs :eek: . Had a tornado just a few miles south of me but we were in the storm pit. Just rain and a little wind and lighting here.

    730, I have fought this leak for awhile now. Does not leak all the time and just a little dampness in the carpet on the right front some times. The local dealer presurized it and fixed all the leakes he could find but it didn't help this one. I have sealed every thing from front to back and will think I have it solved but it will reappear. Guess it just has to be sitting a certain way. Hmm maybe one of the grandkids is using it for a potty :eek: or it is on the better halfs side and I do scare her at times. Maybe I had better look over there after I have driven by one of those high drop offs on her side :laugh:

    Re: falling from the sky

    Chelse, I still have a leak on the ole Winnebago that I still have not figured out. I've eveything I can think about and when it rains, I still get water either by drivers door or same side in rear depending on angle of MH. I want to fix it before we try and sell the MH next spring. Even thought about takeing it back to factory to have them fix a couple bubbles and that darn leak. Might cost me a little, but I hope I can get it back out of her when we sell. She still only has 18K miles on her and all the nice oak inside.

    730, we are too far north to be affected by the fires. Although, a few years ago there was a big firestorm in the Oakland hills that I got real familiar with..

    Re: falling from the sky

    730, we left the beach (Myrtle) a couple of days ago. We were going to stay close to Charleston, but the Passport America Park (Lake Aire) charged extra for everything so we bypassed it and are up by I-95. Got cable TV and wifi cheaper than the PA Park's discount rate for FH's without/cable. Of course it costs more to drive to Charleston, but it's the principle that counts. The only way I know to express my disapproval is with my wallet and of course the www.rvparkreviews.com. :approve:

    The big California fires are right where we lived (San Clemente, Oceanside, Escinitas) while I was stationed at Camp Pendleton many years ago. Almost bought a 3 bedroom ranch house in San Clemente overlooking the Ocean for $21,000. That tells you how long ago it was. We would be rich if we had bought it and stayed in California for about 40 years and then sold. Hope the place doesn't burn down.

    Re: falling from the sky

    We are in southern California and we got smoke! But the fire crews have been making major progress against all but one of the big fires the past two days and the winds have been pretty mild. Supposed to dtay that way for three more days so with any luck they will all be contained by then. Several of the smaller ones are now almost out or out and most are getting close to control.

    A little rain here would help but it isn't likely to happen.
