Rain Hits Mornington

We’ve been locked in a weird weather system at Mornington – haven’t seen the sun in more than five days! Heavy clouds have been sitting over us, dumping rain and humidity.

Me, I’m ready for the dry weather to return. My tent is wet, my mattress is wet, my blankets are wet, my sleeping bag is wet, my clothes are hanging soaking on the line. It’s still reaching almost 90 F during the day, giving us a sticky, damp existence. Sweat doesn’t evaporate. Humidity varies between 80 and 98 percent. The power went out because solar panels aren’t operating, and the showers are ice-cold without solar heaters. The roads are closed and some people have been trapped here for almost a week. This is very unusual weather for May – which averages just .3 in of rain. So far, we’ve had more than ten times that in the last few days – and more in the forecast!

    Its been raining here in California, too- though no heat and humidity like you have. Never thought I would be wishing for you some more of that hot, dry sunny weather!
