But in the meantime, we get the clouds and showers that are ahead of it. Still perfect temperatures though, with highs around 24C (76F) and lows around 15C (60F).
Yesterday morning was very strange though, we had dark threatening clouds all around us, yet the sun was shining for about two hours!
We even had the beginnings of a funnel cloud start and we watched this one for about 10 minutes before it finally dissipated.
Sal and Barb are building an extension here at Hacienda Contreras and the lower level will include a nice "community" room for the campers to gather for a game of cards or to watch TV or have a pot luck dinner. Or, to just sit by the wood stove. Around Christmas time it does get a little chilly here in the evenings, and there can even be frost on the ground in the morning, however daytime will be sunny and warm.
Despite the clouds and rain we are comfortable relaxing. We have lots of books to read, and there are breaks in the clouds where we get a little bit of sun. Last night, we taught Sal and Barb how to play Euchre.
