Lone Wolf



Heading Home

8am - We've left Jojoba Hills and are heading back home to Lone Wolf. We headed out a day early. Anxious to be back with MsTwayler!


Bank of America
This morning I phoned Bank of America about my credit card. The automated phone would NOT let me speak with a human being. Since I do not talk with machines, I guess this means "goodbye" BofA!



2pm - Back at Lone Wolf!
I am sooooo happy to be back at Lone Wolf! Because I am so very tired out from the trip home!

In fact, I am so tired that my eyes are blurry! It's gonna take me awhile to recover! I've collapsed into the the La-Ze-Boy.

3pm - After my nap
Wow!  I feel sooooo much better now that I've had a nap. The inside of MsTwayler is getting warm now. And comfortable.

Baby Boid's cage is door is open. But he has not emerged yet.


5:30pm - Rain and Wind!
Because it is so cold and windy outside, I decided to head over to 24 Hour Fitness in order to soak in the hot tub! What better way to get warm? Right?

On my return, I stopped at Stater Bros and bought a Claim Jumper Blackberry Pie! It's baking in the oven right now! Yummm!

6pm - Rain is sooooo very loud!
The falling rain is so loud, to be almost overwhelming in sound. How could rain be so heavy without a flood?

It's kinda scary!

8:15pm - Loud rain!
It is sooooo very weird! The rain continues to fall so loudly, that it is almost impossible to imagine how very loud it is!

When will this damned loud rain stop?

Here is a report on this huge rainfall:
"An intense winter storm dumped some of the heaviest rains in years over Los Angeles and neighboring areas on Friday, with flash flooding widespread and landslides developing."

Weather authorities clueless!
It is obvious that weather authorities, which only hours ago reported that the drought continues, do not even have a single clue to what the actual weather conditions are at this time!

But I will state, categorically, that there is no drought in California at this time!

  1. Hi George,
    I am starting to get like you. No live person - no business. I have been happy with a local credit union as a bank. They actually used to hold my mortgage. The worst ever is Asbury Park Press. Not only no human, serial recorded sales pitches that would not end.
    Back to campers. That Jojaba Hills sounds great. Do you know if there are any othere places like that? Perhaps in or near Quartzite?

    1. You should do some exploring on your own, to answer your question.

  2. George, batten down the hatches; my cable national weather station says that you and southern California are in for a big blow with hard rains for a few days. It seems that big Pacific storms are causing your weather pattern. Hope you have at least a few can goods stored up in Twayler for a few days. It's good that you came home early so that you would not have to tow Scampy in high winds.

    1. P.S. How is the leak doing in Twayler with all the wind and rain?

    2. Hi Dee,

      I did not realize until I just read your comment how lucky I was to miss this big storm on my way home yesterday!!

      There is no rain leak in Twayler. We fixed that leak with the installation of a MaxsAir Vent.

  3. Actually George the drought takes into consideration how much water is in the water table and we are still below levels we should be at. The reservoirs are pretty much all full now but we need that rain to sink into the ground to raise the water level but most of it is going out into the ocean. Hopefully we will be out of the drought very soon.

    1. Hi Don,

      The drought could be over long before underground water levels come up to the levels of prior years.

    2. Actually, not -- because that is part of the official definition of the word drought!

      If you are using the word to mean "hasn't rained much lately" then you will decide there is no drought, but that's not what the hydrologists and meteorologists mean by the word.

      Also, California is huge and while the drought has ended in part of the state, that's not true in all corners of the state.
