TVC - Day 37 - Powerless

About 6:15 am this morning the power went out in TVC....not sure if the entire park is without electricity at this point,  but section 'E' is for sure.  I'm typing this brief update from my phone,  so will have to do the official blog later today.

3:22 pm - By the time power was restored (read below) the window of time I use for composing each day's blog entry had shrunk to the point where there was not enough time to complete it, but just enough time to post the brief notice of our problem......eventually, after checking our internal breakers, then the breakers on the box and checking with others in our section I determined the outage was limited to just sites 426 (us) to 431.  There is a elctrical junction box about 75 yards from our coach, but a key is needed to unlock it.  By this time it was almost 7 am so I knocked on Harry's door and asked him if he had the key......he did.  From there it was a short walk to the junction box to open the door  and determine that, yes, the breaker for our sites had tripped.  We reset the breaker and the power returned immediately! But, by the time we had restored power it was after 7, and my blog writing window had shrunk giving me just enough time to post my brief notice. 

So,  what did happen Monday?   Nothing much different from Sunday.....I did my site
checks and TLE ran the front desk.  In between my morning rounds and afternoon rounds I spent a couple of hours doing more 'deep cleaning' on the outer loop in section 'F'.  It's amazing how many cigarette butts and bottle caps one finds when one had the time. 

The rest of the day passed by quickly, and TLE and I headed for the 'barn' about 2:30 and spent the afternoon watching several Women's World Cup Matches and then got for ready for hosting our remaining Newell Guru friends for a street tacos dinner.   

And then there were 6.....5 in the picture taken by Tom....:-)

We had a delightful meal, and then spent a couple of hours sitting by the fire chatting before the mosquitoes chased us indoors for the evening about 9. 

Thanks for stopping by!
