Sunday September 18, 2022 Guerneville CA.
We got our first seasonal rain, maybe a little early but that’s ok.
Going for a ride in the rain
It continued to rain until about 3:30 when it let up and stopped for a bit. I checked the satellite view of the weather and it looked like there was a small break in the clouds so I decided to go for a dirt bike ride. I found my rain jacket but not my rain pants, but what the heck, jeans worked ok when I was a kid. Just get a bit wet but a warm house was near if I did.
I used to go out for hikes all day during the rains when I was a bit younger and I didn’t have any good rain gear then.
Took what I got
I took a chance knowing it would start to rain again and I’d get a bit wet. I was hopping for at least about a half hour of no rain, but I’d take what I got and I did.
Downed trees on the trail
Walked out this trail
Rains picking up
And then the rain picked back up again coming down a bit harder so I headed for home going the long way. I was almost at the end of this road when I had to stop for this downed log. Too much for me to deal with so I turned around and went back and took another road and ran into another downed tree, so turned round again and tried another road.
Wet but home
It was raining pretty good when I got home and yes, my pants were real wet so I changed them into dry ones.
It’s really pouring now
Rat Control report
Not much good to report, except the rats are doing well eating the plaster of Paris spiked bait. They don’t seem to detect there’s something bad in it and are coming in to eat it even more and even more tonight with all the rain.
They are really pigging out tonight so maybe something will work. We’ll see.
