Preppers.......

7:22 am - Friday - May 24th - Ramona, CA - 48° F, 86% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear blue skies today with a forecast high of 72° F.....the view this morning.....↴

Well, what do you know?  Blue skies once again!

Thursday was my second day back at work after the HA and it was just as wet, and miserable as it was on Wednesday.....in fact I had my jacket on until after 2 pm.  It would rain, then begin to dry out, then rain again all day long.  I had planned to finish weeding around the Red Barn, but very wet ground and weeding on your hands and knees do not combine very well, so I decided to spend the morning doing a thorough cleaning of the pool which included 'sweeping' it first, then vacuuming it.  This was on the 'to do' list to be done in preparation for the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend, and that is this weekend.  As I suspected, it took me until about 12:15 pm to finish......just as the rains came again.....good timing Clarke.

After lunch it had dried out sufficiently that I was able to get back to the final weeding at the back of the Red Barn, which covered the area all around the horseshoe pits, and there were a lot more weeds than I thought I had observed Wednesday.  By 3:15 pm I had just about finished when I got a call from TLE at the office advising the 'bee guy' was here.  Last Saturday when my kids were playing horseshoes they said they had noticed a lot of bees around the red observation tower that overlooks the mini golf and dog run area......↴

There was a bee hive in the wall of the observation tower!

......we had advised Rich and Marnie, and they had called the 'bee guy' to "neutralize" the bees.  I ran down to the office to guide him to the site at which time he advised me I should vacate the area for about 30 minutes while he did his work as the bees would get quite agitated when he began his work.  I complied without debate.

While the bee guy was doing his thing I headed back to the office to set up the cots we have for two 'pavillon' tents (tents on wooden platforms with cots inside, and a BBQ outside).  We just got in the new tents, and those sites have been rented for this weekend, so we needed to check out the cots to be sure they were in serviceable condition.....they were.

Around 3:45 pm I headed back to the Red Barn to find the 'bee guy' had finished his job.  He said the hive was about 3-4 weeks old.  He had pulled off the plywood on the side of the tower to expose and remove the hive after removing the bees, and all was good to go once again.

I picked up the trash can with the weeds I had pulled.......

 The area behind the horseshoe pits 
is now a weed free zone
Another 25 lbs of weeds

....I headed down to the tool shed to put everything away, filled out my time card and bid TLE adieu until 5 pm.  The fun begins Friday when we have over 70 arrivals.  The park is looking good, and we are ready to rock 'n roll!
