Guys looking at the weather in Quartzsite for next week Monday through Friday rain and showers with the high in the 60's  we never have rain till some event and a 1/4 of a inch of rain will cause flooding so don't park in any low areas next to a gully.  


good luck

If the forecast happens to come true - for a change - then there will be some good entertainment to be had driving around watching guys try to get unstuck.  I'm just guessing but this powder we're parked on looks like it will turn into greased snot when it rains.  Keep yer cameras charged up guys.

My motto out in the desert is, If you are low, GET HIGH! Grin and it doesn't have to be raining where you are to be washed away Shocked, The rain from a  passing storm a few miles away can catch you by surprise with a roaring wall of H2O. Clifford doesn't worry much about that stuff Grin LOL though, He drops the levelers and Viola! sitting high and dry like an off shore oil rig Grin Grin Grin. You Texans, got it goin on! Wink

Sorry, guys. I guess we brought the bad weather down with us. I thought we left it back home, but nope. It appears that it hid in our bays, and got loose when I changed the genny oil yesterday Cheesy. I really did try to keep it in...sorry guys.

But, here in Tucson, I hear that they are six inches behind, so they are looking forward to the rain.

God bless,

John

I was just teasing, Clifford.

Actually, it rained just a bit here in Tucson, and it did smell incredible. We don't get that kind of smell back home. It was very nice.

God bless,

John

I have no connection to Weather tap.com, but thought this would be helpful to all at the Q that have internet down there. good luck and we'll see ya down the pike Grin

Why pay twice, when you have already paid the National Weather Service to get the info for you? 

Start with this URL, then plug in whatever city you want to know about:

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Lodi&state=CA&site=STO&textField1=38.1303&textField2=-121.271&e=1

For the really big picture, try the NWS warnings page:

The weather here changes so fast I never know what to think. My best weather information I have ever received is this. If I step outsides and it's sunny, it's going to be a good day, if it's raining, it's raining. Roll Eyes

Sorry, but I can't take the blame for rain, if it were MY fault, it would have been SNOW!!! Cheesy

So, am I in danger sitting in Quartzite Market Place, N. Side of Kuehn, east side of 95???  Inquiring minds, you know.  Hate to have this new purchase float away tooooooo quickly!!!  Christy
