POSSIBLE RAIN IN FORECAST – DOGS CONTINUE

HURRICANE HARVEY stayed north east of South Padre Island. SPI had evacuated but opened the bridge and beaches the next morning. We did not get any rain in Mission. With the upcoming Labor Day Weekend, again, we are in the expectation of possible rain – 80%.

Our temperature continues to be 100 but over the weekend dropping to 92 – 94. The gentle breeze has been 15 to 20 mph. Evenings are nice with beautiful Texas Sunsets. The palm trees were trimmed but already sprouting 3 to 4 more palms.

DOGS in the park. The two dogs continue to run the park and damage skirting and AC duct work. What looks to be just a piece of skirting missing there is extreme destruction to the duct work under the park model. There were 7 units found to have damage Tuesday. Three of them major and leaseholder has been contacted. One unit repaired and the other to be repaired today. I called the police again and they came out and I have another case number for these units.

This morning at 1:45 a.m. I heard a noise outside my bedroom window (metal hitting metal), looked out and there were the 2 dogs, 1 black and the other red (like my hair). This is to the east of my unit and right under the security light. I took out after them, no I could not get a clear…….. but yelled chased them away. Damage on both sides of the unit and I will have to check come daylight as to underneath the unit and call the leaseholder. I will check the security cameras just to see if they ran out the front entrance. I toured the park several times after that sighting checking to see if Blackie and Red had returned. Yes, I gave them names. These dogs do not bark. Best description I can give, possible Labs.

GAS is up to $2.17 (from $1.95+} but there is no shortage. There was a social media posting that because of Houston oil rigs being shut down there is a shortage of gasoline. Mayor Darling assured us there is no shortage and please do not line up and wait to fill your tank. Yes, there were lines of cars at gas stations waiting to fill up the tank or top it off. Gas price may go up 15 – 25 cents.

Preparing for your return to the RGV, your Winter Texan Home. YES there is a Registration Form for you to fill out. Please do it upon arrival or soon after, as this informs the office you are here in the park. So please stop by the office to say HI and register. OFFICE HOURS 9 – 12.

Hurricane Harvey, Dogs in Park, No Rain

HURRICANE HARVEY IS IN THE NEWS. Several residents have phoned inquiring as to how we full timers are doing with the weather down here. This morning the weather man said 80% chance of precipitation here in Mission, 1 to 3 inches of rain. We were excited! It has been hot and dry for months. There was rain one day several weeks ago but not enough to help the lawns and trees. By noon there were clouds but no rain. About 2p.m the precipitation had dipped to 20% possible. When the clouds broke and the sun came peeping thru, three of us went swimming in the pool. No Rain. By 4 p.m. the sky was clear, nice and blue. No Rain. Precipitation for tomorrow possible 10%.

Hurricane Harvey is along the Texas coastline. Sad to say that South Padre Island had to evacuate and the bridge closed early this morning. Those living along the coastline of Corpus were also advised to evacuate. It is difficult to say what we will actually get here in the valley once Harvey hits land on the coastline. Some weather maps show areas close by, Harlingen, as being the place where the storm grows weaker as it comes west. Non the less Hidalgo County residents made preparations as if we could have the Tropical Storm part of Harvey. Best to be Prepared.

Other news: The dogs were back in the park one morning last week. Remember the 3 dogs that did damage to several AC units by tearing up the skirting duct work. Well one morning last week I heard a yelp, 4:45 a.m. Could not see or hear anything else. Then came the news in the office. Doris spotted duct work and skirting torn away at #78. Then later #72. After talking with leaseholders, AC man Melone came and repaired both units. Later, Noreen (138) came into office and said she heard noise 4:45 a.m. at her place and went outside to check. She came upon the black dog trying to move the stones around her new AC. The black dog took off and the other had already ran away. So 2 dogs now. The yelp was one of them had bit into wiring on #72. I did file a police report again. Have tell you, when you file a police report questions were: Who are you? Color of eyes? Height? and then I said you are not going to get my weight so don’t ask. I had hoped to give description of the dogs but she didn’t ask. These are big dogs, well fed, no collars, possibly Labs. Owner is letting them out early morning to run.

Preparation is being made for your return and, YES, there is a Registration Form for you to fill out. So please stop by the office to say HI and register. OFFICE HOURS 9 – 12.

#129 Park Model has been added to Rental List.
#80 Sale price reduced to $40,000
#9 Sale price reduced to $39,900

All for now. We continue to pray for rain. Be safe in your travels and See You Soon.

HOT IN THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY

Temperature today 106 with heat index reaching 113. Yesterday was 105 plus. About 3p.m. the pool water becomes warmer so pool time is early. A drop in temperatures are expected this weekend, 95 degrees. Residents here know there are limits as to what we can do in the heat of the day. A chance of rain is always in the forecast and this may be the week a brief shower for us in Mission (looks like Sunday 60%). There always seems to be a umbrella over Mission.

POST OFFICE NOTE: MAIL: Please address your mail to the office: W & I RESORT OFFICE (line 1) 206 S. Stewart Rd #234 (line 2) Mission, TX 78572 (line 3). If there are more than 3 lines the PO machine CANNOT READ THE ADDRESS CORRECTLY. When you give your address out please list YOUR NAME ON LINE 1. ADDRESS WITH LOT # OR TRAILER # ON LINE 2, CITY, STATE & ZIP ON LINE 3. ONLY THE 3 LINES!. Do not use W & I Resort for your personal address.

I have been to the PO several times and complained that mail is being returned showing them a label that says “VACANT” at our address. No one postal person has our route and the ones I have addressed do not seem to understand the problem. City of Mission, our utility bill for the park has not been delivered the last two months. I had a CUT OFF notice for non payment last month. Made a quick call and found they had not received our check. So I rushed another and hand delivered to City of Mission. I called this month and bills were mailed 5/31 and by June 7 no bill for W & I. I did see the postman here and he had two bills with mail for other parks. I called City of Mission and had them fax a bill to us and I delivered the check to them Friday.

Lot #122 has been sold.

If you are not receiving e=mails from Thelma, please let me know and I will send her your e-mail address.

Enjoy your summer and be safe.

SUMMER TIME IN THE VALLEY

Here it is Memorial Day Weekend. Today, Sunday has been a day of racing. Indy 500 was first on the agenda. And now, Charlotte 600 with NASCAR is on. If you are traveling, camping or just hanging out at your summer home, BE SAFE! Tomorrow I plan to attend the 8:30 remembrance services at the War Memorial behind the McAllen Convention Center. The ceremony will also be honoring those Firemen who lost their lives on 9/11. If you have never been to that particular War Memorial Park, it is truly humbling to see the walls of honor of those who served and died for their country, so that you and I can live in the land of the free – AMERICA. Let us never forget our Veterans.

Memorial Day – We are remembering and praying for all of the service people who have given their lives so that we may have the freedoms that we so often take for granted.

WEATHER: I have heard from several of you up north about rain, cold, dreary weather and you are still in jackets and jeans. Well, Ah yes, it is HOT HERE. Our days are 98 degrees plus with heat indexes of 110 or more. Pretty mild considering Rio Grande City had a day with heat index of 123. But we here in the park live with the heat and plan accordingly. The SOLAR is working on the swimming pool. If the heat continues we may have to turn the Solar off. Can you imagine, turning off the Sun??

MAIL: Please address your mail to the office: W & I RESORT OFFICE (line 1) 206 S. Stewart Rd #234 (line 2) Mission, TX 78572 (line 3). If there are more than 3 lines the PO machine CANNOT READ THE ADDRESS CORRECTLY. When you give your address out please list YOUR NAME ON LINE 1. ADDRESS WITH LOT # OR TRAILER # ON LINE 2, CITY, STATE & ZIP ON LINE 3. ONLY THE 3 LINES!. Do not use W & I Resort for your personal address.

I have been to the PO several times and complained that mail is being returned showing them a label that says “VACANT” at our address. No one postal person has our route and the ones I have addressed do not seem to understand the problem.

PROPERTY TAX HIKE – again. I will be representing W & I Resort at the Hidalgo County Appraisal’s Office in Edinburg, protesting the hike in property taxes for the park. The meeting is June 8. Several of the residents will also attend in support of the park. I am working with Gary and Maridelle as to highlights being taxed over value of the park. We are not the only ones as The Monitor has several valley residents writing Letters To The Editor complaining of taxes being raised and they will be protesting, suggesting other residents do the same on June 8.

Lot #233 was sold to a couple from Oleander Acres.
Lot #154 has been reduced to $25,000.

All for now from your winter time home. Won’t be long and you will be preparing for your return to the Rio Grande Valley.

My Office hours are 9-12.

All is well in the park.
