It is raining in Mazatlán. I MEAN RAINING. Things are floating away. I expect to see the Jeep leave any minute now.
Started to pour heavy about 2 a.m. and it is now 10:30 and it actually stopped for about 15 minutes. So quiet. But is supposed to continue heavy rain until sometime this evening.
So I'm not kidding about Noah.
Oh ya, the TelMex lineman. I think I saw him float by on a life raft but he couldn't get it in the park.
So here are some pictures from Lake Las Jaibas Resort.
Bill has been up since 2:30 more about that later. He is finally taking a nap. Here he is unplugging all the Christmas lights before POOF!
This was about 7:30 this morning. You can still see part of the Jeeps back tire under the wheel. And check out the little bougainvillea on the right.
Looking in front of us. The block wall acts just like a damn dam!
Water is getting a little higher.
So why were we up so early. WELL let me tell you! When we bought this lovely Jayco coach one of the selling points was the windows - the "they will never leak" windows. BS. Well I shouldn't say that only one of them leaks, the escape window in the bedroom. Let me tell you when it dries up that window is going to be so siliconed to the coach no one will ever get out of it. Both inside and out. Every towel we have is soaking wet from sopping up the water. I know the window is open, would you believe it leaks less when it is partially open. There are paper towels in the casing to sop up what rain splashes in there. When the window is closed a river flows inside. Jayco is going to get a long letter from me. Bill has used up all the silicone he had with us to try to seal the inside of the casing. It looks like it is holding as long as the window is open. We've - mostly he - has spent all night and part of this morning taking sopping wet towels to the sink, wringing them out and putting them back under the window. I am going to make sure we buy some "as seen on TV" Flex Seal when we find some.
It is pouring again so got to go check the towels. Well they aren't getting any wetter. But now the wind has picked up and it is blowing cold air in the window.
The sewer hose is floating.
The neighbors patio is under water. Patio is about 3 to 4 inches above the ground.
How high's the water MaMa? About 6 inches and rising.
He's going to float away unless it stops.
Chair leg on patio. About two inches of leg is under water. And it just started to pour again.
The planters in the front of the patio are just barely sitting in water.
The ones on the back part are just barely not floating away.
And so that is what is going on here. Talked to Bill's brother who lives in Tehachapi, CA and he says they have almost 3 feet of snow. And it is still snowing.
We came back to Mexico this year to get rid of the bad feelings we got here last year. Well that doesn't seem to be working. I know I shouldn't complain about it, I'm warm, dry and have power - if it wasn't for that @#$*^n window it would be okay.
More later, we might be stranded in RV for a couple of days.
