A Slow Day, Groceries and Plans To Meet Anna

Dillon, SC.

66 deg. overcast, SW wind @ 8 mph.

Forecast = Cloudy with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms early this morning...then a slight chance of light rain. Clearing late afternoon. Highs in the mid 60s. Southwest winds around 10 mph... becoming northwest 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent.

Not much happened here yesterday. The fore-casted stormy weather held off until later in the evening so about 11:00 Jim and Linda took CLT and headed to a Food Lion Grocery store and bought some needed groceries. By 1:00 they were back here and had all the supplies put away.

After Jim took a little snooze, he went out and (because the forecast for the evening through this morning was for storms and rain), dumped my tanks and put away all the hoses. The way it turned out, he could have waited to do that until this morning, but who knew that the storms and rain would be through here well before this morning.

For dinner, he and Linda headed over to a Shoney's Restaurant and had a sandwich. When they got back here, Jim hooked CLT up to the back of me so he wouldn't have to do it this morning in the fore-casted rain.

While they were watching TV, the phone rang and it was Anna. Plans were made as when and where to meet, and it was decided that they would meet her at a restaurant over in Beaufort, SC at 5:30 this evening.

Oh, and the stormy weather?  Well, the storms came through here about 8:00 last night, but here, we didn't have anything severe. We did have a little wind, some lightning and thunder, and a short burst of heavy rain, but the heaviest weather passed to the Northwest of here where they had a reported tornado.

So.  . . .this morning, we'll head down to a campground near Yemassee, SC where I will stay while Jim and Linda take CLT and head over to Beaufort to meet Anna for dinner. I understand that they did this last year and it worked out real well.

Did you know that on this date in 1913 the steamship Louise became the first ship to travel through the Panama Canal?
