In the shade! (continued)

6:12 am - Saturday - July 13th - Ramona, CA - 63° F, 81% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, blue, sunny, not skies today with a forecast high of 96° F.

To get a jump on the heat Friday I started work at 7 am.  I knew I had to vacuum and sweep the pool due to heavy usage the last two days, and I cannot tell you how nice it was to do the entire job in the shade of the trees on the eastern side of the pool!  I was done just about 9 am and headed down to the office to fill out my time card.  Rich suggested I check the water tank to see how empty it was.....it was down 8,000 gallons!  The tank only holds 10,000 gallons, so I turned on both pumps to run for 3.5 hours adding 7,000 gallons.  I didn't take lunch until 10:30 am, which left me with just 1 hour of work before the end of the first part of my split shift.

Since I need to get to work again this (Saturday) morning I will leave off here and finish when I get off work at 2 pm.......


8:12 pm - Saturday - July 13th - Ramona, CA - 77° F, 58% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the west by northwest.....

Just realized I forgot to finish my blog post for Friday....for the final two hours of my split shift I monitored the pool use, and basically made several rounds of the park including a trip up and around the fire road.  The skies were pretty free of haze, and the views were long....



.....I picked up TLE from the office at 7 pm, and we headed for home.  We watched a couple of recorded shows ('Alone', and 'Elementary') before heading out at 9:30 pm to close the park.  When we arrived at the pool I discovered the water level had dropped so low that the pumps were running dry so I had to shut them down, and turn on the water to add water to the pool.  It was about 5" low, and I knew it would take at least 4-5 hours to get the water high enough to feed the pumps, so I had to return about 1:30 am to check the water level, and then turn on and reprime the pumps.  It took about 30 minutes, but I got them to hold prime, and begin circulating water again.  I knew when I returned at 7 am to start my shift that the water would be just where it needed to be, so I headed home and went back to bed about 2 am.
