Awake to a soft white ground. I might be getting used to this snow stuff. Does make the temps warmer. But not warm enough to go out of the house with this cold in my head. In fact my head is so full of snot I feel absolutely stupid and like there’s no room for anything really important. Wonder if eyes can pop out of my head.
Water pipe burst in site 23/24 causing a fountain. Not the first pipe break this winter. This old park really needs an upgrade. I called the manager. Am hoping the shut off doesn’t affect the rest of the park. This is an area mostly used by tenters as there are no sewer hookups along the fence backed up to the cemetery. Water off and three rigs checking it out, including the manager. Someone from the city even stopped by. Don’t think it was fixed but I still have water.
Started labeling the September vacation photos. Way too many taken through a bug splattered windshield. Saw a lot in five days through five national park sites but mostly through dirty glass. Is there ever enough time on vacations? At least now I know to return to each of them and spend more time. The first day was a long drive with limited stopping to get to Hovenweep National Monument for the lunar eclipse. Had to settle with taking photos from camp as the ruins were closed after dark.
I started off blogging daily in October 2008 on blogspot, later changed to WordPress, then over time the posts dropped to roughly three a week. When I return to work I am reminded how much time 40 hours a week takes out of life. With more going on, and to write about, I am perpetually behind from real time. Kind of miss that, like writing in a daily journal/diary. Going to try and do that here.
Received a call from the “Geek Squad” guy and the South African laptop I dropped off Sunday is ready. Found and cleaned out 4 viruses. But Microsoft won’t allow an update from Windows 8 to 10. They’ve tried everything that’s legal. I just can’t, won’t and don’t want to learn 8. Looks like this Sunday will be an open window weather-wise for a trip to Best Buy in St. George. Gives me time to think about what to do with the laptop. Haven’t liked this ASUS since I purchased it. Wonder what they’d give on a trade-in?
No rain or snow the rest of the day but mostly gray skies with just a touch of sunshine.
Still labeling photos and dreaming of vacations past and future.
