But, along with the rain came very high winds!
As you can see from the following pictures, once again we have a lot of cleanup to do. We can't win. Just get the park almost cleaned up, and another windstorm comes along to make us do it all over again!
Yesterday, just after the storm. Never seen the water so choppy.
Lots of small branches on the ground.
Oh well. We need the exercise, right...?
And a few bigger branches too.
There's actually one small tree that came down right between two of the RV's. Going to have to get the chain saw out for that one. And, two of the campers had left their awnings out and they paid the price.
Yesterday during the day, Alex and I started repairing our "fire engine"". It's just an old boat trailer with a water tank mounted on it and a gas powered water pump. But it didn't survive the winter very well, and I think someone must have ran into it (which makes no sense at all, but I can't think of anything else that would have caused this!) and when we got here this spring the tank was on the ground and the fittings were all broken. I had bought the parts the other day, but still need to buy new hoses.
And, we took apart the engine and cleaned it up. There had been a fuel leak when I looked at it last year so I think we got that fixed.
Meanwhile, Ruth had gone into town to a greenhouse and bought almost $200 worth of bedding plants as well as a few perennials so she's got her work cut out for her getting those planted.
A white pelican, all puffed out.
