Game night

Saturday, May 31, 2008

Been raining off and on all morning - short heavy bursts. That did not stop us from going to perk for a morning coffee. Drummer Jim and Zippy were there - Coleen said she is fighting a loosing battle in wiping down the counters.

I am totally wanting to get a camera set up like Mark now as he is fully waterproof and has no worries for rain or boats. Unfortunately my camera starting to show minor effects of salt air. Wish we had the option to buy more waterproof gear here. My new rain cape works good, but since the sides only have 2 snaps I could see getting wet if there was a lot of wind with the rain and I really need a waterproof bag. Off to check eBay and see if I can find anything good in that area.

After we got home, Dick rang and asked us to go for game and movie night tonight. I told him I would pass that along to Paul and Cindy and we could do pot luck. With it being rainy we all agreed was perfect way to spend our Saturday night. I am ready to crack open The game of life that I won at Pedro's gift exchange game will also bring scattergories. Cindy and I were both in agreement that we somehow need to get trivial pursuit down here.

Hi Carole, Dick was filling us in on the latest adventures of your trip. It is on the cool side today enough to wear long pants and long sleeves. See you online when you reach your destination - don't get too cold in Iqaluit. We had a great time at your house tonight Carole and enjoyed a delicious pot luck meal. Played scattergories and uno - decided the game of life is just to difficult to lean at the end of the evening and is better started while our minds are fresher. Much more complicated than I remember - of course if I remember right we likely made our own rules up when playing as kids ha ha.

Looks like it is time to start watching the weather sites occasionally. Talk has gone from Alma to Arthur - have been checking Weather Underground - Caribbean Hurricane network and NOAA for their seasonal predictions.

Any of our Mexican friends have a first hand weather report for us? Are you getting as much scattered showers as we are this weekend? Yup it is raining again. I will go catch up on your blogs that might give me an answer right away.

Here are some pics and weather information from Mexico area ... Cancuncanuck - Blah Blah Blah Ginger

Looks like you guys are getting hit much harder than we are. The rain has been a pleasant departure after months and months of dry hot weather. Surfs up for sure but the wind has been calm. My poor friend Susan left a few days ago for a bit of R&R and beach time in Placencia. I hope she has some board games to pass away the time. Miss you guys.

Looks like she may need an extra R in there for rain. We are enjoying the rain too makes everything so green when the dust gets washed off. Miss you too - say hi to the rest of the Kinnon clan for us and we will do same tonight from you.

Hey tacogirl,
How's the evening going? We're dry right now in Cancun, though it is cloudy. I just postedan update on my blog too.

Hope you are dry. Well, dry like not wet not dry like no beer dry. :)

Hey Cancuncanuck - will check your post now. So far so good on staying dry though San Pedro is quite wet and there are puddles the size of small lakes to the north and south where the road is not cobblestones.

Hey L&P,
We're getting amazing winds here from the outer bands, and surf is incredible. Wish I had the guts to get out there on a boogie board ..... NOT!

Hang on tight and let us know how your doing. Thinking of you, hoping not to lose our power again tonight as well.

STarted blowing in last night and we lost power until mid-day today. It has been wicked windy but not so much rain today compared to yesterday. We're across from Cozumel on the peninsula, about 15km south of PdC.

Woah, it rained that much? Hopefully it'll get better, a friend of mine is planning to visit soon.
