Rain, Rain, Rain!

Yes, I rained on us most of the way from Vicksburg to Shreveport yesterday and ever since.

Crossing the Mississippi River.

We pulled into the Elks Club at 12:45 in the rain and decided that the RV spots were not usable because of the soft ground. We got permission to park in the parking lot. Budd parked as close to the power and water as possible and I parked out side of him.

We partook of the clubs hospitality before dinner.

It rained all night long and this morning we decided to stay put for the day as the roads would be a mess and we did not need to be out there. In the meantime another RV came in parked in front of us. This morning we got him power and also us power by using all of the extension cords we had.

We bought groceries and fuel and that was about it for the day.

We again went into the club this evening for Happy Hour.
Clyda playing slots (legal in Louisiana).

Clyda made soup for dinner which went well with the cool, damp weather.

And it is still raining.

Too pass the time we played Mexican Train and planned the remainder of our trip west.
