When it rains, it pours!

Pat ate the "radioactive" grape, lol!

Literally and figuratively! Once we entered Kentucky it rained off and on all day. My creative and crafting spells hit when they hit, and that's usually in the middle of the night. While I was sewing Weds. night, or rather 1 a.m. this morning (Thurs.), wind and heavy rain went through. Our roof vents have covers and rarely have rain blow in but they did at 1 a.m.

Now the 'figuratively' part. New RV tires, car battery, and now water coming in again,  only when we are driving. 10 minutes after the rain started Weds. the water sensor in the basement went off--ugh! Not the first time lately and Pat's working on it. He put a new seal on one double door and has more weatherstripping ordered. Not sure that's the issue though. He thinks maybe when they put the new basement floor in a year ago they didn't seal the seam well enough. Driving in the rain isn't something we do often and usually we go out of our way to stay clear of it. It certainly didn't flood the main bay but we still had to take everything out (fortunately most stuff is in tubs) Weds. and dry it out. He resealed the seam inside and will do the underside of the seam once the weather clears. Fingers crossed!

Also, only when driving, there's water coming in under our main slide. Assuming  that has to do with our Vroom slides installed in June changing how the slide sits compared to the rubber weatherstripping. He's working on that too. Always something!  


Wednesday's 🚗 Drive

Tuesday's 🚗 Drive

Ark Encounter is located in Williamstown, KY, not far from Cincinnati. We didn't stop and I didn't actually see it from the road, at least not that I know of. Pretty sure I saw the circle patio with the flowers though, so who knows? Only "The Shadow Knows!" If you are as old as me you may know where that saying comes from. 

This is a full-sized Noah's Ark. There are three decks filled with exhibits allowing you to experience what Noah's life may have been like. They have additional "experiences" such as speakers, concerts, etc., some of which cost extra.

It sounded like it would be interesting, but at $60 for just the Ark, not including the museum (the $100 ticket) or other extras, an hour stop wasn't cost effective. Actually for us it's pretty pricey anyways.
