We had strong winds and rain on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. I got drenched walking to the office on Wednesday morning (even though I had an umbrella and wore a windbreaker). The rainy weather has given us lower temperatures (woo-hoo) and mosquito's (boo).
The rain is welcome because of ongoing drought conditions, there were puddles all over the campground, but most of the puddles are gone this morning. The weather.com shows that we will get more rain all week and weekend. The rain finally stopped by 5:00 pm when I walked back to the RV after work. I went for a walk in the evening, even though more rain was predicted. I knew I would be able to wait out rain under the pavilion at the beach or at the boat docks.
The "energy" of the water and air is different after a heavy rain. It felt soo....good to walk barefoot along the edge of the water. I wanted to stay out there all night. It would be great to park the RV near the shore overnight, but that is not allowed in the County Park where I was walking.
All of these pics in this post were taken between 7:00pm and 8:30pm during my walk. Turn around facing any of the four directions and see a different sky each time. So far, we have not had any additional rain. If you look at the radar at "weather.com" it is raining???
The southern end of Padre Island is about 40 miles long, north to south, the city of South Padre is only about 5 miles long. A lot of Padre Island is off limits to vehicle traffic and the island stretches north to Corpus Christi (Padre Island National Seashore). The KOA is on the south end and my daughter lives about 3 miles north of the campground - and we have different weather on some days. She will text that it is pouring rain at her house and there will be no rain at the KOA.
