It's over......

8:19 am - Tuesday - I know, it looks like I'm up too early, but actually I did not get up too early......but you'll have to read on to find out why.  Of course, the daily weather report for South Lake Tahoe......sunny, no clouds, 61% humidity, no wind......37 F degrees.

By the time we got out of bed Monday Section E was already a ghost town......we had 253 departures scheduled with just 20 arrivals.  Order has been restored, and quiet is the operative word.  While TLE made a grocery run I spent time cleaning up our outdoor area....sweeping, wiping off the picnic table, recliners, camp chairs, etc.  

I was working on 5, or 6 hours sleep and really wanted to take a nap, but kept getting distracted by one thing, or another, and before I knew it my watch said 2 pm, and we had to be at work by 3.....rats!  I did manage to get a 30 minute nap, but it wasn't enough by a long shot.

With the park back down to about 150 sites occupied there was not much to do but pick up the litter left behind by our weekend revelers, and there is a lot of it.  Once the sun set, which is now around 7:21 pm, I spent time inside helping TLE clean black magic marker off our counters with acetone, removed old Scotch Tape from the counter edges.....it was that kind of night.  We clocked out at 10:40 pm and headed for home, and were asleep before midnight.  

In about a week we will go back to working days.....there will be no need to keep the office/store open until 10 pm, and no need to patrol the park until after midnight.  The population of TVC will continue to drop until only Section G is open.  We'll begin winterizing each section by turning off the power, and water, and then draining all the water lines so they don't freeze over the winter.  We'll cut our weekly hours back to about 30, or less.

The Fall in South Lake Tahoe, or anywhere in the Tahoe Basin is a wonderful time of year.....you are between the summer crowds, and the winter ski crowds.  The day time temps stay pleasantly in the low 70's to high 60's even though it gets into the 30's most nights.....we are really looking forward to more down time, and more time to explore.

Thanks for stopping by!
