Chase the Blue Dot

Anyone looking at the weather forecast could see there was some interesting rainy weather set to arrive on Thanksgiving. We headed to Bullhead City to have our Thanksgiving meal with my mother-in-law, which is about an hour drive. Once we arrived, I kept track of the skies and the hourly weatherly reports to make sure we made it back to the RV before the main storm hit.

A little windy, but it was puffy white clouds in the blue sky.

The Thanksgiving meal was over around 3 p.m., and we continued chatting for a bit, until I noticed it had started raining.

We made sure my mother-in-law got back home, packed our stuff, and headed out.

The drive home was not fun. There wasn’t rain for most of the drive, but I estimate that I was battling 25-30 mph winds for a good portion of the trip.

We pulled in about 4:45 p.m., just as the rain started up again.

We pretty much had rain until about 3 a.m. Friday. The winds got bad enough at one point that we pulled in the driver’s side slideout. The concern with winds is the slide toppers, and the winds were seriously making some noise with the driver’s side.

Friday morning, we got up and ran a couple of non-Black Friday errands to get propane and other RV things. The skies and ground were much better looking.

Winds were about 10-15 mph, but the skies continued to look like this for most of the day.
