Rained sideways

We were staying at the beautiful Zion River Resort in Virgin Utah. If you would like a campground near Zion National Park, this is it! The staff there are very nice. We got a site near the river, and all was well. Charla and I always sleep so well in HOWE, our Home on WhEels.

At 5 in the morning, I woke up to hard rain – but it was not raining on the roof, It was raining on the side wall next to my bed! For some reason Charla didn’t hear it. 😎 It took me a minute to wake up enough to realize what was happening. Then I remembered our hot water heater is on that side of HOWE. I was afraid that somehow it had ruptured and was spewing water. I stumbled out of bed, found some pants, and went outside. Water was running off the side of the trailer. I walked up to it and realized where it was coming from. There was a tree nearby, and irrigation line was ringed around it. I think it was supposed to have a soaker hose or small nozzle there, but it was missing, and a geyser was shooting from it hitting the side of the trailer! I implemented a very sophisticated fix for this situation. I put a tote over the top of the geyser and put a block of wood on top of the tote!

Right about my feet is where the geyser was. I had to relax the next day to recover!

I went back inside, and now Charla was awake. She was asking me what was wrong. But a dark trailer in the dark night is not conducive to communication with a deaf person. I used a text to speech app to tell her the story. She instantly fell back asleep. I however took quite a while for the adrenalin to settle down. Oh the fun of RV living.
