Water world.......

6:57 am - Thursday - November 14th - Ramona, CA - 49° F, 84% humidity, wind - CALM......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 78° F.

After I got back from my Wednesday morning MTB ride I noticed a stream of water flowing down the road from right in front of restroom #2.  It appeared, at first, that water was just bubbling up out of the dirt.  It turned out that somehow the sprinklers around the restroom had spontaneously turned themselves on.....they have been 'OFF' since Spring.  We were able to get them turned off once again, but we had no idea how long this had been going on, but when I went up to check the water tank an hour later it became obvious it had been a long time as the tank was down 8,000 (out of 10,000) gallons.....that is now, officially, the lowest I have ever seen it...... 

.....the rest of the day was pretty routine after that early morning excitement.

After doing the pool tests I swept up the leaves which had accumulated, and then retrieved one of our shop vacuums and vacuumed out the pool pump room.  I've swept it a couple of times since I've been here, but this is the first time I've vacuumed it....I should have done this a long time ago.  Much easier to vacuum around all the pump equipment than to sweep.
It's taken a couple of days to get the Jacuzzi clean after we changed the filter gravel and sand, but it was finally ready Wednesday afternoon for use again. From there I moved over to the playground the blow a pile of leaves off the artificial turf.

Once the pool and Jacuzzi work was done I headed down to the storage area between the tool shed, and the maintenance building to begin to clean it.  I've been slowly hauling a bunch of masonry  (pavers, garden borders, etc.) which has been stored there for years up to the storage area where the bulk of this stuff is kept.  Once I have that all moved I can begin to move other stuff around and rake up all the leaf accumulation before reorganizing everything kept (lawnmowers, trash cans, gas cans, spare tires for the golf carts, PVC pipe, wheel barrows, hoses, etc.)  there so it is all[p more accessible.  This will probably take a few more days.

To wrap up my Wednesday I tended to the horseshoe pit, and the mini golf areas and then put away my tools.  I was another great Fall day.....clear, blue skies, and 82° doesn't get much better than that.
