Waiting for the Sun

PA300018 We're still hunkered down in Louisa, VA. It rained all day yesterday and is drizzling off and on today. There's lots of gravel in our area of the campground so no big puddles to wade through. Not sure how the area did with the storm but the winds weren't as bad as they predicted or the fact that we face north and the wind went straight down the sides of the rig made the difference. We could tell, if we went outside, that it was windy but the rig wasn't shaking while inside.

Nice park and being a Passport America park made it like $25 a night which is great for full hook-ups, direct TV and high speed internet. Will definitely stay at Small Country Campground if passing through here again. They are open year round.

We're hoping that First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach will re-open tomorrow. We will call today to make sure they are ok to open. It's one thing to be inside and do nothing if that is what you want to do but when it's gloomy and yucky outside and you have to stay inside, it gets old in a hurry. There is just so much TV I can watch of all the flooding and devastation. I feel sad for all the folks who have been impacted. All of our kids and family are safe and sound, up and down the east coast.

We've enjoyed our time with our friends, Amie and Marlene. If it hadn't been for this event, we wouldn't have seen them until March so this was a pleasant surprise for all of us. It's pretty disruptive to the park they were in the middle of working but they are making the best of it by trying to call and e-mail their advertisers. Everything will turn out great, I'm sure.

Hoping all of our RVing friends are safe. Can't wait to see the sun once again. Sandy has chased her away for a day or two but I know she has to come out again real soon.
