Santa Ana.......

6:24 am - Friday - September 13th - Ramona, CA - 56° F, 81% humidity, wind - CALM......clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 97° F.  We're into the roller coaster days days of September when the highs vary over the coarse of a week from the low 80's to the high 90's.....9 days until Fall arrives.

Thursday had me doing everything under the sun at RORVR*.  I began, as I always do, at the pool, moving up to the horseshoe pits, down to the mini golf course, then down to the maintenance building to shave a 1/4" off the top of the bathroom door so it would close making it a real bathroom again with privacy, and everything.  The maintenance building used to be a model home way back when RORVR* was first opened.  Then the park consisted of mostly park models, and this building was an example of what people could buy, and have placed on their lot.  Over the months I have been cleaning up the kitchen area, and bathroom area so they are once again functional.  There is no stove, or fridge, but everything else is there, including a shower, and A/C.

Next up was to unroll two 50' sections of fire hose at the campground fire hydrant near restroom #1 so we could turn off the water system and drain it into the creek.  Why?  Well, we were repairing a section of 1.5" PVC water pipe.  That took about two hours, so once that was done I had to roll up the two 50' sections of fire hose, put them away, and then turn the water system on once again.

After lunch I retrieved the riding lawnmower to mow both fire roads leading up to the water tank after which I worked with Dave for about 45 minutes watering down the compacted dirt in site #73, then was called to repair the overhead device that closes the door to the men's bathroom as the arm had come loose.  Then to cap off my day I retrieved the pressure cleaner to remove some oil, or grease from the sidewalk leading to restroom #1.

Thursday also marked the beginning of our first Santa Ana wind condition of the season.  This was not one of those violent 50 mph wind kind of days, but the conditions were unmistakable.....desert winds out of the northeast, very, very dry conditions, crystal, clear blue skies, and elevated temperatures.

I worked all the way to my quitting time of 3 pm, but there was a time when I thought the heat would cause me to quit early.  The recorded high was 92° F, but it felt much hotter than that.  The high Friday will be 97° F, or higher, but I only work until 12 pm on Fridays, so it's all good.

After a quick shower I returned to the office retrieve TLE from work and return her home. So, here we are at the end of another week at RORVR* approaching the middle of another September of full time life on the road.  We are enjoying our new view, and the afternoon shade.....life continues to be good.

Thanks for stopping by!
