Cutting through the blue tape.......

 7:49 am - Tuesday - February 9th - Seal Rock, OR - 34° F, 93% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north.....sunny today with a forecast high of 46° F.  On this date in 2013 we were courtesy parked in Ft. Meyers, FL at the home TLE's cousin, Gail, and her husband, Jimmy......↴


Monday was another day without rain, and another day I was able to work.  I returned to a job I performed a few months ago.....mowing sites at the front of the park.  In all I worked 2.25 hours, mowed 9 sites, as well as a large area of lawn between sites #40 and #39.  I was home a little after 12:15 pm, and went to work almost immediately installing my 2021 license plate tag for, and then I began the long task of taking the blue tape off the tail light bezels.  Cleaning the residue from the blue tape off the headlights was easier, because the lights themselves are recessed, so the tape only touched the bezel.  The tail lights are flush mounted within the bezels, and, therefore, the tape also touched the lights themselves.....what a mess!  I finally figured out that rubbing mineral spirits over said residue softened it up, and I was finally able to finish cleaning them........

Before.....

.....after....ready to go!

.....by the time I finished them it was almost 4 pm, it was getting quite cold again, and time to head inside.  Of course, just like heat, cold is a relative term here in Coastal Oregon.  A few months ago I would have said 60° F was cold, but it hasn't hit 60 in a long time, and it's been a while since we saw a 50° F days, so the new norm for 'It's cold!' is 40° F.

TLE worked the 1 pm to 4 pm shift Monday, and just as I was getting warm again she arrived home.  Just two more days to get ready for liftoff!
