A three hour work day......

 7:58 am - Wednesday - December 23rd - Seal Rock, OR - 37° F, 87% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, very cold, blue skies today with a forecast high of 49° F.  On this date in 2018 TLE and I visited the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.......↴

After days of rain Tuesday provided us with a respite, but everything was quite saturated.  This Tuesday was clean the filters day at the WDS plant.  We found out shortly after arriving at the WDS plant that we could not drive the golf cart back up the hill as it was too saturated with water, and all we did was spin our rear wheels.  It was bitter cold as it was mostly cloudy with a breeze, and within minutes our latex clad hands lost all feeling, but we got the job done.  We did manage to get the golf cart back up the hill with me driving and Terry and Blake pushing to get me rolling.  Needless to say, we did not drive back down that hill again on Tuesday.

Next up was more hedge trimming.  There is a large settling field for the septic system which has a large hedge surrounding it on all sides.  It is probably 80' x 60', and the hedge has not been trimmed since I have been here.  While we were in the midst of the trimming, and the raking a customer from site #23 approached us asking if we had some way to jump start their Class C RV, whose battery appeared to have died overnight.  The park has no such device, but I have one of those battery pack devices which I bought while we were still at RORVR, so I volunteered to retrieve it and meet the customer at their site.  Within just a few minutes their engine roared to life.  I've used this battery pack to jump start our diesel tractor here at SRRVC, so I was sure it was up to the task of jumping a Ford V-8.  As a sign of their extreme gratitude they gifted me a slab of smoked Wild Caught Coho Salmon.....cool!

After a 30 minute absence I returned to the settling field, and we continued trimming and raking until almost 1 pm.  I haven't worked 3 hours in succession for weeks, but it was nice after a week of no work whatsoever.  TLE also worked an hour more than she usually does on Tuesdays. 

You will recall I wrote about the impeding delivery of our new Dometic fridge via FedEx, and my concern with their ontime delivery record since March.  I am happy to report that I received an unsolicited call from them advising it would be delivered on Wednesday as promised.  As my Mom would say "the proof is in the pudding", so we shal see what we shall see.

We had no precipitation whatsoever Tuesday, and it appears we are in for the same Wednesday and Thursday according ot to the 'weather guessers', but will have rain again on Christmas.
