September 8, 2012

Last night around 9:45 pm we had a very big windstorm.  It was coming from the west and it had already produced 80-100 mile an hour wind gusts with some damage.  Lots of people in northwest Arkansas were without electricity.  By the time it got to us the winds had died down some but it was still blowing hard.  At 10:30 pm it started to rain and when I checked the rain gauge this morning it had 1 inch in it.  It is also much cooler today, finally.  Around noon we drove to Dumas about 10 miles away and got some groceries and went to the Dollar General.  We also had lunch at Subway.  We went back to camp and I got some wood from a campsite next to us.  We watched the tugs on the river.  I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen while Jim surfed the internet.  After supper we had a nice fire.  There is no one around us and it was nice to sit outside and look at the stars and listen to the owls, crickets and coyotes.  There was no noise from people, music or dogs.  It was a very nice relaxing day.
