6:22 am - Sunday - 36º F, 75% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the south....sunny, cloudless skies......another beautiful South Lake Tahoe day in store for us......forecast high is 71º F.......yeah, back into the 70's!
Day two (Saturday) of the Memorial Day weekend began with a few bumps in the road....it was the first 'Pancake Breakfast' of the summer season, we had a whole new team running it, and new equipment, which had not yet been tested (it arrived via UPS late afternoon on Friday). Of course when you give 'Murphy's Law' so much to work with he will mess with you, right? Nonetheless, Michael, Mary, A.J. and Amanda recovered and successfully completed service (it runs from 8:30 am to 10:30 am on Saturday's and Sunday's). The great thing is the customer's had no idea they were having 'issues'.
The next bump in the road became apparent when I clocked in for the day at 7:20 am.....our dumpsters were already overflowing and it is only Saturday morning.....apparently someone (not moi) forgot to call the local refuse company to do a pickup on Friday, which is our custom on holiday weekends. So that meant they had not been emptied since Monday.....not a good formula for success. At any rate I retrieved the loader from the maintenance yard and had Neal (Ranger) join me at the dumpsters near the Section G bathrooms to begin transferring some of the trash from them to other dumpsters that were not quite as full. Adam from Maintenance soon joined us with the TVC Ford PU to help. Within 45 minutes we had temporarily mitigated the situation, but I have no doubt by Sunday morning we will be back were we started with fewer options available.
Whilst we toiled in the confines of TVC my son, Tim, and his fiance, Laila, spent the day touring South Lake Tahoe........
.......it was a grand way to end another day in TVC. The four of us retired to the Newell to talk for a while and by 10 pm we had gone entered 'dreamland' once again.
Thanks for stopping by!
