Thursday before the holiday and we’re ready for ‘them.’ My head is back to normal after the dentist’s drill. After getting pumped full of anesthetic it took a while for all that junk to clear out of my system. This morning Phil the maintenance guy came around to fix our phone and Internet lines — so we’re back up to full functionality. I had hoped to get some more leaf blowing done before the weekend but everything’s still too damp after our recent rains so that will wait till after the holiday.
I originally wrote this to publish before Memorial Day, but then something came up so this ended up posting after the holiday. Not an apology, just an explanation.
We’ve been talking about the weather lately. It seems after numerous situations where bad weather has been the topic of the day that our little corner of the world is slightly less likely to see the worst of the neighboring weather. We’ve been noticing this over several years — that the severe storm warnings tend to focus North and West of us, or South and East of us. Oh, there’s no telling Momma Nature what she should be doing, but by sheer number of “Alerts” and “Warnings” we are already ahead of the game again this year. There are those places known as Tornado Alley, and others that get their regular crippling winter Ice Storms — we are usually pretty lucky here by being spared the worst of the steering winds. That doesn’t mean we won’t get storms this year — now that I’ve commented on them. But we are thankful for the previous good fortune we’ve had.
We have at least 2 ‘groups’ in the park this weekend. One has 11 sites. Another has 4. And I think there’s another group who do BBQ contests — not sure if they’ll be cooking this weekend or just kickin’ back. (But one can always hope.😀😀 )
Our seasonal rangers / interns have gotten enough of their training that we’re starting to see them roaming around solo — they are incredibly happy about that — it’s always fun to share those kind of new life experiences with young adults — it reminds us of what it was like when we were new to the work world and having our own workplace firsts. Makes me feel good.
I guess Peg & I are in a holding pattern until Katy gets here. Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll be here to chat in the morning.
