Merry Christmas, 2020.......

 8:45 am - Saturday - December 26th - Seal Rock, OR - 46° F, 87% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the west southwest......cloudy, with a chance of rain and a forecast high of 50° F.  On this date in 2018 we were 'winging' our way back to Nashville after spending Christmas with our kids, grandkids, and great grandkids........↴

As expected we were treated to a 'Wet Christmas'.  The rain was torrential at times early in the day, but eventually tailed off towards late afternoon.  We enjoyed an hour long 'Zoom' call with our kids and grandkids, watched more Christmas movies, and then ended the day binge watching more of 'Arrow'......I think 9, or 10 episodes, and are now into Season 7.

When you don't do much, there is not much about which to write, and TLE and I did not do much on Christmas day except be grateful for our lives together, our nomadic life, our ability to change our view without going through escrow, bask in the love of our children and grand children, and look forward to the New Year.  It has to be better than 2020, doesn't it?

I don't think I've mentioned that when we first arrived here at SRRVC we had wonderful water pressure.  Suddenly, about 3 weeks ago, Greg turned the park water off for about 30 minutes while he repaired a leaking water spigot, and when he turned it back on our water pressure had dropped from a consistent 50+ PSI to between 25 and 30 PSI.  Some days it would be higher, and some days so low our tankless water heater would not come on unless we turned on our house water pump to augment the water pressure.   I tried taking the aerators off the faucets to check for debris which might blocking the flow, but found nothing that would cause our problem.  Finally on Thursday when I was installing the new heated hose I decided to run it over to the water spigot in the site next to us which seemed to have a good flow of water, still no change.  Our Newell has a built in water pressure regulator to protect our plumbing against excessively high water pressure, and it works well.  I had to replace this regulator back in 2014 when the original one began to leak.  These pressure regulators allow you to adjust the water pressure allowed into the coach, and it occurred to me that maybe the adjustment valve was stuck, or getting clogged, so I got a pair of plyers and began to rotate the adjustment knob back and forth....suddenly the water pressure increased from just barely over 20 PSI to close to 45 PSI restoring order to our 'water world'.  While it is not as high as when we first arrived, it is more than adequate to run our tankless water heater, and take nice hot showers without the aid of the house water pump anymore.

With that I will say goodbye until tomorrow.  Merry Christmas to all, and here is wishing you all a much happier New Year!
