7:38 am - Tuesday - 33º F, 77% humidity, wind - CALM.....partly cloudy skies today with a forecast high of 55º F.

Our first morning in TVC, Monday, began with snow showers which continued on and off all day long.  The snow never really stuck to the ground, but it did to the VW and our picnic table.......

......around 10 am TLE and I walked over to the office/store to talk with Miguel, our manager, and Victor, our assistant manager for a couple of hours about their plans and philosophy for the summer.  We are very excited about the direction the park is moving under their tutelage.  TLE will not begin working until May 1st as that is when their summer budget begins, however, they got permission for me to work 10 hours per week until May 1st going back to the beginning of the month.  While I was not physically here at TVC on April 1st I have been working all winter on recruiting workampers, and they are acknowledging that by paying me for 10 hours per week the entire month of April.  Of course, now that I am here I will be doing physical work, and there is a lot to do.

We walked back to the coach to get the VW so we could run a few local errands which will always involve a stop at perhaps the nicest Goodwill we have seen.....they refer to this Goodwill as a 'Boutique Goodwill'....all the best items from several surrounding areas are sorted and brought up to this Goodwill.  I found a wonderful parka with a hood, and a new (used) pair of Levis to use for my cold weather work pants this year.....the ones I used last year finally disintegrated just before we left TVC last October (TLE also found a few things she could not live without).  Next we stopped by Higher Ground Autoworx to talk with John (our mechanic) about getting the VW in next week for its annual service, then we stopped by Raley's to do a small shopping before arriving back at the coach around 1 pm.....it continued to rain and snow the rest of the afternoon.

The rest of the afternoon we just relaxed, read, and enjoyed the occasional snow showers....it's going to take me a few days to acclimate back to cooler winter like temperatures after 6 weeks of warm to hot temps going back to Las Vegas, and to being at 6,300' elevation.
