March 16, 2010.
We awoke with the full intention of traveling towards Austin, Texas. However, the weather report last night was not inspiring and it was cloudy this morning. We checked the local weather which indicated a slight chance of rain for Louisiana. I then checked the Weather Underground website and discovered that most of Texas and particularly the area we would be traveling in was covered in rain with 80% chance of rain all day.
Now you gotta remember, We are retired and not in a hurry to get anywhere! I'm certainly not going to tow my house (fifth wheel) in foul weather when I have the option to avoid it. Not only is it risky but, rain and wet roads make everything filthy when you drive! So, we walked Maggie and Rico to the office and extended another day at A Plus Motel and RV Park.
By late morning, it was raining and continued lightly raining here in Sulphur, Louisiana. We could see the pollen pooling in the the rain run-off. As much as I wanted to move on, I felt confident we made the right decision to wait another day.
We spent most of the day enjoying the park's WiFi and staying dry. Hopefully tomorrow we will be 'on the road again'.
