Just off Interstate 5
This morning I went out and sat on the patio in the backyard and I started smelling smoke. I checked to see if it was a new fire but no, it\’s from the Salt Fire which is about 26 miles north of us. This one was started by a vehicle. When I say 26 miles – it may sound close but the fire personnel does their best to contain the side closer to a town and fortunately, the wind is not blowing our way. I\’m not worried at all.
The smoke was getting thicker as the morning went on – so it\’s inside the house today, as well as back to wearing the n95 masks for any extended time outside. I\’ll stay home, thank you.
My friend Margie who I help out – she has a swamp cooler instead of an AC. It really doesn\’t work when it gets too hot. She really needs to get a window unit.
When we picked up the tent trailer and they told us there was dry rot and mildew on the sub-flooring and the roof. Not bad but that will be included in our renovations and has to be done before we get the canvas tent back, sometime in December. We plan to open it up and let the hot sun bake it for a couple of days before we start. I still wish we had bought a trailer instead but it will be nice once we get it all done and ready for 2022.
The husband told me that he has accepted more hours – he\’s working 30 hours a week. I told him, finally that when he told me he wanted a part-time job, I was thinking 15 to 20 hours a week. He assures me, once we pay off the car he will either quit or drastically cut down the hours.
California gas tax went up again, yesterday – but I don\’t have to concern myself with it – we still haven\’t filled up our gas tank yet in the new car. We still have a full tank and boy can I tell the difference in my monthly expenses.
