I began my golf cart ride down to the office wearing my hoodie sweatshirt, but had it off by the time I arrived there....it was going to be a warm day! The view from the water tank down the valley was the clearest this week. By the time I had opened the park facilities, and done my pool tests Marnie had the meter reading list ready for me.......
....once a month, on the 28th of each month, we read the meters of our monthly residents. Why the 28th? Well, February has just 28 days (most of the time) so that was the date chosen years ago as the monthly meter reading day. I managed to read about half the meters by my lunchtime at 11:30 am (Friday is my split shift day), and then finished them after lunch.
SDGE (San Diego Gas and Electric) changes the rate/kilowat each month. Last month it was 25¢, this month (June) it is 26¢. We used 520 kilowats since May 28th which comes to $132.20, but as employees we get a $50 credit leaving a balance due of $82.20.....not bad. We used the A/C quite a bit when we had that heatwave back in early June, and we have used the electric heaters most mornings the past two weeks.
One of my readers asked when the broken anti siphon valve was going to be repaired. The answer was Friday. The replacement anti siphon valve was delivered Friday morning by FedEx. Rich and Mike (the one who backed over it) got busy installing it, and within 90 minutes it was done.
