Pairing up.....

8:40 am - Sunday - Cinco de Mayo - Ramona, CA - 51° F, 80% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the west by southwest.......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 71° F......the view today......↴


Saturday was a day filled with projects requiring two people to complete.....Rich and I.  We spent time measuring at various WiFi repeater stations around the park to order new cable so a few these repeaters can be moved to a different location, or to a higher position.  I don't know if I have mentioned it previously, but the WiFi here at RORVR* is amazingly fast.  Since there is no cable TV here the park has invested in a great WiFi system to allow their customers to 'stream', and it seems to be able to handle the load so far.

We spent time at the old water tank site cleaning up the rest of the debris from the collapse 3 months ago in preparation for the installation of the new, permanent tank in the near future.....

 Rich using a 'sawsall' to cut up a 30' piece of 4" diameter cast iron pipe from the old water tank

....there was a 30' piece of twisted 4" diameter cast iron pipe to cut up, as well as a few hundred feet of old PVC conduit and wiring.....

.....we finished those tasks just before lunch time.  It's the first time I've had a chance to work directly with Rich, and we found we had quite a lot in common....

 The temporary water tank

....each morning we drive up to the temporary water tank site to check the water level, and found we were down 6,000 gallons.......he showed me how to use a smart phone program called 'eWeLink' to turn on the two remote pumps......


.....in the screenshot above both pumps are 'offline'.....all I have to do to activate one, or both of the pumps is to press each 'button'.   A timer can be set prior to activating each pump to turn it/them off in a specified amount of time.  In this case Rich set the timers for 3 hours as the pumps can deliver about 2,000 gallons an hour to the tank.  Sure enough, three hours later the tank was full once again.

Where the original water tank was located prior to its collapse, and where the new tank will most likely be installed

After lunch we hauled the water tank debris we had collected up to the storage yard and unloaded it into the large roll away dumpster kept there for just such things.  From 2:30 to 4 pm I was on my own so I spent that time doing weed abatement around sites 57, 58 and 59....one of the items on Rich's 'to do' list in the office.  

I picked up TLE from the office at 4 pm, and that was the end of our current work week, and current pay period (pay periods are from Sunday to Saturday, and we are paid every other Friday via direct deposit).  Normally we would work Sunday also, then be off Monday and Tuesday, however I have my eye surgery on Friday, and an appointment on Thursday to get my eyes measured for that surgery so they can insert the correct lens.  We will only work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and I will be off work from Thursday through Tuesday most likely.  TLE will most likely go back to work on Sunday after we return on Saturday the 11th.  I will be on a modified work schedule for a couple of weeks while my eye heals from the surgery......no lifting, bending over, etc.

It was such a lovely late afternoon when we arrived home that we sat outside reading until after 6 pm when the chill in the early evening air chased us back inside for the evening.  My endurance is increasing with each day of work, and my recovery time is decreasing day by day.....all good stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!
