Canton Weather. . . . You Just Never Know


We had a surprise awaking this morning around 1am. The wind all of a sudden picked up, then lighting, thunder with a brief period of heavy rain. The winds really rocked the motorhome and our awing's sure did flap. This system I'm sure was the same weather system that brought the snow and colder weather to parts of Arizona this weekend. It rained for several hours and we are hanging in there with no further leaks in our roof.

This morning we still have the strong winds but not the rain. We're about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. Sunny skies makes one to want to be outside doing something. Since I'm not a golfer, walker, or play tennis I decided it would be a good day to do the aluminum wheels on the motorhome. I gathered up all the cleaner, terrycloth rags and wax and started on the passenger side. Nope, this isn’t going to work, the winds just cut you in half. So, back inside out of the winds and this project will have to await another day.

None of our neighbors are here yet? What's going on that we don’t know about ? Usually most are here by Sunday evening. Maybe they knew about the weather and decided to wait till sometime today to show up. Sandy is off to Walmart to pick up groceries for our stay here this week. I stayed behind and rested my eyes.

Was glad to see Jeff Gordon climb back into the winners circle in yesterday’s NASCAR Cup race at Phoenix. Even though it would had been nice if Kyle Bush who came in second could have won. That would have given him a sweep of Phoenix this weekend by already winning the truck race Friday and the Nationwide Saturday. 

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.

  1. I suppose you are sending it our way.
    It will be down to 40deg. tonight, with 10-15 mph winds.
    So different from the last few nights as we have had to run AC!
