72 degrees this morning, 88 % humidity
Rain most of day yesterday especially late afternoon, evening.
Unfortunately we got caught in the rain yesterday and had to wait for a ride in the rain. A stranger gave Aliene a plastic poncho to put on, showing that there are good and caring people everywhere! Fortunately while it was a steady rain, it wasn’t a really hard rain.
The alarm system went off here (in the hotel) at 3:15 a.m. this morning. We never did hear the reason, and relaxed after we saw people coming back inside. With all of the things that can happen I am surprised they didn’t have some way of communicating what was going on.
We are on the 9th floor, so we weren’t looking forward to walking down 9 flights of stairs, although the elevators kept running.
One time we walked down 23 flights of stairs due to a hotel false alarm. Not any fun even then, but we were also about 16 years younger, if I remember correctly! We could have done it this time, but we weren’t going to unless it was a real emergency!
One time, I was on the 25th floor of the hotel. I put some toast in the toaster and it started smoking and set off the fire alarm. I didn’t even think of walking down 25 flights of stairs, I just slunk to my room in embarrassment! (it wasn’t my fault, but still embarrassing!) (The alarm was short, since the kitchen staff knew why the alarm had gone off.)
I didn’t eat any toast in a hotel for a long time after that!
Saw a fiddle player yesterday. She was really good, but the lead singer didn’t let her go and perform a solo part or anything like she deserved.
Finished the 5th season of “Bosch” last night. Their won’t be any more for a long time, even if there is another season. (I hadn’t heard and the ending was very inconclusive.)
I normally don’t “binge” watch anything, in fact normally the only time I watched Bosch or “Blacklist” etc. is 30 minutes or so 3 x a week and whenever we go to Starbucks for an hour or so. I watched it since I am on vacation and I thought it would be fun to just watch it.
It feels a little like overeating, I really enjoyed it, but it was over too fast. I was surprised there was only 10 episodes in this season (normally there are 14-16 episodes to a season.)
Supposed to be more rain today, and maybe tomorrow. To say we are so tired of rain is an understatement. I know once it stops, there probably won’t be any rain for a long time!
That’s it for now, Saturday, June 8, 2019.
