Huguenot Memorial Park

The helicopters and jets stopped flying over sometime between 10 and 11 PM, and the rain started.  It was just a light rain, but it had a strong and gusty wind behind it.  When it hadn't stopped by 9 AM, I called the camp office and had them sign me up for another night - no point traveling in this weather when I could stay put for just $5.75.  I had plenty of food, and my gear was dry inside the tent.

It didn't stay that way.  By noon the tent was taking on water above and below, the top had blown off my green bin allowing the contents to marinate, and my new keyboard had started malfunctioning just like the old one.  I shouldn't have gotten it out in wet conditions, but after I finished my only book I thought I'd get some work done.  The amount of work I got done pays for half the price of the keyboard, so I didn't even break even with that purchase.

The storm was officially called a nor'easter on the weather-band radio.  That forecast predicts the rain will stop tonight, but a park employee said he heard it'll continue all day tomorrow.  Either way, I'm getting a hotel tomorrow night!
