The OFM woke right on time in the dark. Sunday morning early is the best time to hit the campground laundry. He set to work quickly. The wash and dry went without hitch. The entire laundry effort including putting it all away and making the bed was finished at 0847.

The OFM sat down at the computer to check the weather for our fun efforts today. A big notice was on the screen. ALL FUN EFFORTS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL 1300 TODAY. Yep a major thunderstorm, rain storm, driving wind storm and on and on was scheduled for 0915.

Sure enough it hit at 0917. It had the whole earth rocking and rolling it seemed. The rain was severe at times. The wind seemed to gust up above 40 mph frequently. The sky show was really spectacular. The “best” part is we got to “enjoy” the show until about noon. Then it was just the residual rain for a good while. WOW.

So how did the Teams pass the time. They made the OFM do a preliminary planning colored pencil painting of a scene that has been being considered for several months. After almost three hours and 13 erasers here is the results of the effort.

By 1300 the weather was magnificent and the Teams went fishing. 

Very few fish were caught and none by the OFM Teams. But when you gather the evidence, painting fun, fishing fun, being outside in wonderful weather and visiting nice folks can pretty well be considered trying to have tooooo much fun.
