Neither Hail nor Rain nor Wind nor Busted Fuel Pump Keeps these RVers from ...

Back at Sister's House

Well, home away from home.  Or our “second” home.  Or better said…amongst family.

California US 99, spring flowers

Along highway 99 it was nice to see all the yellow and orange flowers, in abundance, due to the “normal” rains that have finally come to the Golden State.

Folsom Lake Level Last November

We left the area in November 2015.  In mid-November, this is the lake level of Folsom Lake, just outside of Sacramento

Folsom Lake Level Today

Today, way above normal.  Can’t wait to see it in person.  Lake Oroville and Shasta Lake are all very similar to Folsom, and they hold 4 to 5 times the water Folsom holds.

Drought over?  Depends upon who you talk to.  Now the citizens are fighting their municipal water districts which want/need to raise rates because the lower water use has brought less revenues … yep, you can see where this is going.  The better you conserved, the more your rates will go up.  Once the rates are up, who is going to want to use the amount of water they use to use?  So lush green lawns now in the spring, will turn brown in the late summer because there won’t be these heavy rains keeping them green.  Yep, welcome to the Golden State.

Arny and the Drag Car

So what has Arny been up to since we have been gone?  With his mother out in Utah staying with his brother, Arny has been “re-painting” and fixing up the race car that his good friend shows and races at national drag races.  More of this in an upcoming blog…

    1. It was one of our harder trips...I think the wind was the worst of it. My hands will be aching for a few days due to the grip on the wheel.
