The sun is trying to peek out from behind the clouds this morning. We had a soggy evening yesterday. Our high was 64º with a low of 54º and a little under 1/2" of rain. You know it has been a wet year when the crew got excited to see a forecast of partly sunny for the next week. I think we are due a few beautiful days to recharge our souls. Other than the wet season, we are plugging along. The end of season countdown has started. The crew is starting to discuss their winter plans. It is always exciting to have a trip to look forward to. Chris and I are joining Beau and Courtney for a trip to Hawaii. We are planning on two weeks of tent camping and hiking. It will be during their rainy season, so I joke that this season is getting us prepared. For some reason, they don't think that is funny. Chris is extremely excited about this trip. This will knock off his last state to visit. After this trip, he can boast he has been to all 50 states. I, personally, will be looking forward to a hammock on a beach.
