The weather hasn't been the best since we arrived in Columbus. I would say we have had maybe five good days for walks and cat outings.
We keep sending Dusty outside so he can see or feel for himself how bad the weather really is at the time. He thinks we are doing it on purpose. I wish we could switch the weather on and off. Wouldn't that be nice? ;)

Today, we are under Flash Flood Watch until 1 am Tuesday......and watch I am. Having a river view is great during nice sunny weather. Not so good when it has been raining all night. Plus, we were hearing an air boat going up and down the river. We were wondering at the time if they were checking the river's condition since they were going slow and seemed to be stopping a lot along the way.
We woke to heavy rain this morning and we have been watching the Colorado river rising slowly throughout the day. This was the first photo I took this morning around 10 am when I can still see the sand bar at the point (just above & to the left of the sign).....
Around 1 pm, the rain is still coming down and the sand bar is gone...
Still rising at 3 pm...
The campground office is keeping an eye on the river and they are in contact with the reservoir upriver from us. We are about 20 feet above the river and they will let us know if we need to move. Odd, we were dealing with heavy rains and flooding last year in Seaside, OR. Maybe we should think about adding pontoons to the sides of our motorhome. How do you think that would look?
On The Cutting Board
One good thing that has happened since we arrived here - I have made several trips to the Post Office to mail out orders. The most recent order was very interesting for me. The customer wanted a similar Happy Camper for her husband without the hearts and flowers. We had some great conversations about our interests in camping as well.
After our conversations, I came up with this design with a cardinal and swirls of wind for hubby.
In the meantime, I have figured out a way to add dogs inside the doors of the next two trailers.
Well, I spent most of the day on the computer and watching the river rise. Time to relax with a little sewing.
