Saturday my football season ended. I had a 3rd round quarter final game up in Centralia to referee and that one ended my season for this year. I worked 8 semi pro games in Spring & Summer and about 35 high school, middle school and youth league games this fall with 13 of them being varsity contests and 3 playoff games. Not a bad season, if you excuse the one JV game where I was tripped and fell. 3 years ago I did a season with 75 games but at age 63, those days are behind me.
This morning we left home for Cape Disappointment, our favorite destination. The forecast was for rain and wind, but while there were periods of rain, the wind wasn’t a factor. Best part, both for loading and hooking up at home and for setting up here at the park, it wasn’t raining. I was even able to give the car a good wash as it really needed it from all the road grime.
However, soon after we arrived the wind picked up. The ranger that checked Carol in said it would be 40mph or so with gusts to 80. We haven’t really seen anything that strong yet, though it is supposed to intensify during the night.
Our site is somewhat protected by some nearby trees so hopefully we will be sheltered from the worst of it. But you can really hear it howling outside and there have been some heavy showers.
I watched New England decimate Kansas City on Monday Night Football. This helps my Raiders and they now have a 2 game lead over KC and San Diego. After watching, I put the Satellite dish down in case we really do get the 80mph gusts.
I am able to get some very limited internet using my cell phone and range expander. It is weak and extremely slow, but for email and simple browsing, it works OK.
Will update more tomorrow when I know what is going on with the weather and our plans for the day.
