But the weather was perfect. Sunny and slightly warmer than forecast...highs of around 25C (77F) so we couldn't have asked for better in that department.
And we topped it all off with a fireworks show last night!
We have a special events committee here on the board of directors and they looked after the fireworks from start to finish so we only had to clean up the beach area this morning after the crowds left and even that wasn't much work.
A lot of boats on the lake came from nearby cabins to watch the fireworks.
Considering we are just a small park, these guys went all out. The fireworks lasted a good 15 minutes non stop. I tried our new Nikon P520 on it's "fireworks" setting and got some not bad shots...
Definitely impressed with the camera. The ones with the black night sky were taken on the "fireworks" setting, and the ones with the bluer sky were just me messing around on some other settings. Little bit different effects.
So, still having water problems. I've got the whole story now, and of course this is our first year here so we didn't know much of the history but they've had their share of water problems here at the park. They used to take the water directly from the lake but they were spending a fortune in filtration and figured digging a well might be better in the long term. So this well that we're on is brand new and nobody knew that it wouldn't be able to keep up. I guess they should have had some kind of backup plan, but like anything else hindsight is 20/20!
So this morning we had zero water. None.
We do have two old fashioned style outhouses, so it's not a disaster. People will survive!
But we also went and filled up a couple of rubbermade garbage cans with lake water and put them by the two flush toilets. We'll see if people are smart enough to figure out that's what it's there for!
In the meantime, there are no showers so I'm sure some people are distressed about that but there's nothing we can do until the water truck arrives to fill one of our 1,200 gallon tanks. That should last us for a few hours!!
