The weather was beautiful this morning as the Truck took me out looking for a coffee pot. We eventually ended up in what amounts to west Corpus. The area is called Five Points or Calallen depending on which title you like best. It is about eighteen miles away.
When the last store was vacated the sky back towards Sinton was very unpleasant looking. A congregation of around fifteen motorcycle folks with some very fancy motorcycles were milling in the parking lot looking toward the ugly weather. As the Truck was leaving the parking lot, the motorcyclists were moving to under the canopy of an out of business store and hoping for some weather protection.
About three minutes after the Team left the parking lot we hit the storm head on. WOW heavy rain, then hail, wind of excessive force and the Truck wisely slowed to around forty on the interstate. Even the big trucks slowed to our speed. For the next seventeen miles it was slow nasty traveling. Just as we turned into the Welder park entrance, it slowed to just hard rain. That was not fun.
However it is known the reason that the storm had to come this morning.
The car show was set up in the fenced area near the Castle.
When it was safe to amble around some, a coat and hat was applied to my body and away the camera led me. It was 50, strong wet wind with occasional misty slop coming through.
There were some very nice vehicles there to see. The weather was too miserable. Many of the owners were sitting inside their vehicles shivering strongly. My mission was not to be denied, so some pictures were taken for the readers to enjoy. My fingers and ears could not handle the cold for long, so it was a fast walk through.
Across the flooded grassy area was this car that would have been nice to see up close, but my waders were back at the Castle. Thank heavens for telephoto lenses.
Back in ancient history days my sister had a fast little Camaro. This one is a beauty and likely can gather speeding tickets with little effort. Maybe even without moving!!!
Another car that looked nice from the quick glance it was given had a guard cat protecting it. The cat was quivering just waiting to pounce on some one if the touched the car.
At the rear of the show was this old truck that would have been nice to look at more intensely than the weather allowed. A quick couple of pictures and it was time to go get warm for this fat man.
A weather storm and cold tonight, a nice car show and a walk around the park with four golf balls following me home makes a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
