Fourth Saturday.....

 8:33 am - 5th Saturday - April 23rd - Seal Rock, OR - 48° F, 82% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......heavy marine layer this morning, again, with a forecast high of 52° F, and a 46% chance of rain....personally, I don't think it's going to rain.  On this date in 2013 TLE and I were visiting Harper's Ferry, West Virginia........↴


Fourth Saturday...Thursday, if you will......saw me working all by myself.  I fired up the Massey-Ferguson loader just before 10 am, and  finished up site #2 adding gravel to the side nearest the electrical pedestal to make it level side to side, then finishing the driveway apron.  I did the same for site #39 (finishing the driveway apron), raked out a bucket of gravel where the dumpsters sit, and then worked at leveling site #4 side to side using the larger rock as a base.  I had not quite finished with site #4 when I glanced at my watch to see it was approaching 1:30 pm....where does the time go?  When I am working with the loader day after day I usually will park it overnight in the site upon which I am working, but since it was my Friday I took it back to the barn until Sunday when I return to work.

TLE had another split shift Thursday, so she headed back to work at 2 pm for another two hours.  There weren't many calls in the afternoon, so she was home a little after 3:30 pm.

The sun came out for a very short time late afternoon, but by 5:30 pm it had retreated behind the ever present marine layer.  We knew there would be no sunset this day, but decided to have a fire, nonetheless.  TLE made popcorn, a small plate of cold cuts, and opened a bottle of Malbec for the occasion.  We had the Siriusly Sinatra channel playing in the background as we talked, and read until after 7 pm, when we decided to call it an evening......



....another day without rain is always a good day on the Oregon Coast.  We continue, of course, to be asymptomatic here on the rural Oregon Coast.....life seems almost normal here.
