Thursday 21- I did my stretches and lifted weights; still can’t go for a run because of weather…
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 34 and 40 degrees, SE winds at 6 to 30 MPH, humidity around 71 percent, stratus clouds covering the whole sky bringing lots of rain later in the afternoon and evening just like the last three days.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: A chance of showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 10am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 48. Southwest wind 9 to 12 mph increasing to between 18 and 21 mph. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 10pm, then a slight chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34. West southwest wind between 7 and 17 mph, with gusts as high as 24 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
It rained all day long and didn’t let up. I just stayed inside reading “The Lost World” until late into the evening. I practiced my guitar somewhere in between. I’m going to make this a short post because nothing really happened and I am very tired and stranded inside my home.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

M.L.King Day- I did my stretches. There was a light drizzle with dark clouds heavy with rain on the horizon so I didn’t go on a run.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 40 and 53 degrees, SSE winds at 11 to 29 MPH, humidity around 63 percent, stratus clouds covering the whole sky bringing lots of rain later in the afternoon and evening.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Rain likely, mainly after 4pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 55. West wind 7 to 16 mph becoming south. Winds could gust as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Tuesday Night: Rain likely, mainly before 10pm. Cloudy, with a low around 41. Southwest wind between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.”
Stoney called me early in the morning saying he’s having a hard time breathing and asked if I could take him to the doctor around 2pm; I said I could. I guess what I said yesterday about not having to drive any long distances in the rain just went down the drain, but that’s okay.
I restrung my guitar with the new strings I got last week and it sounds mighty good!
I got to Stoney’s around 1:30pm to take a shower before we drove down to his doctor in Yucca Valley. We took Stoney’s car and headed to town as the rain grew heavier. The rain was coming down pretty good when we arrived at 2:30. The rain was continuous filling up the streets with muddied water. I stayed in the car reading “The Lost World” while Stoney went inside to see his doctor. We left the doctors around 3:45 and the streets were flooded and we decided to go a different route home up HWY 247 instead of through Joshua Tree because when there is this much rain the streets are sometime impassable, plus it was there was a lot of traffic. We did stop at the Chevron to get gas and sandwiches at the Subway there. It took us until 5pm to get home because the streets were so flooded, and there were spots where it looked like a river crossing. Coming down Winters Road it was like driving in the center of a river; water kicked up by the tires covered the whole car and made it hard to see the road. There was just enough light left when we got to Stoney’s house that I was able to drive the Gross Polluter home without headlights (they were ripped out during last Friday’s accident).
I got back home and lit a fire in the woodstove and settled down to read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today" and “The Cell: a Molecular approach”. Then I continued to read “The Lost World” until late into the evening.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
