The drive over from San Diego was a wet one. It rained all the next day, and most of the next. I know its because Dave washed Beluga and the Jeep the day before we left, but he doesn't believe me...... We're not enjoying all the wetness, but the desert needs water and everyone here is rejoicing, so we'll join in and be happy for what we get.
The low hanging clouds obscured the beautiful mountains all around us.
Many of the main roads flooded, this much water isn't usual here and the ground can't handle it.
Beluga is parked at a Desert Hot Springs RV park for the holiday while we make merry with our family here in Palm Springs. We had to enlist the superior skills of Mr. David's A-1 Professional Moving and Packing Specialists to get all our stuff into the Jeep for the 20 minute ride from there over to the house. I was sure we'd need to make two trips, but Mr. David assured me he would get it all sorted Even Lewis fit, although he had to ride next to the Christmas tree.
Speaking of Lewis, he isn't sure what to do with all the space we have here. And, a fenced in backyard with a pool.....no more "getting busy" on a leash. He can go anywhere he wants to, not just where we tell him to. He can go out of sight and watch us, check out the bushes and trees and bubbling spa without one of us being right next to him. FUN!
And, lots of beds to sleep on, not just one!

And, lots of low windows to look out, everywhere. And, a new ball!

My kind of Christmas view!
