Saturday - Feeling a bit better. For
some reason I can deal with a bagel and coffee relatively easily. It's
anything else that sets things off. Huh. I was going to yard sale with
friends, but discretion is the better part of valor.
- Still feeling terrible. Well, I felt good in the morning, and went to
lunch with friends. I had half a bowl of rice before I started feeling
bad again. The rest of the day, evening and most of the night was
fire near our job site is called the "Springs Fire", and has burned
from the Camarillo grade all the way to the ocean, 28,000 acres and
only 10% contained. Yikes.
But a front and onshore flow, even
light rain, is predicted for Sunday, so our Contractor can start up
again and probably work all week.
Thursday 2 May 2013
- Annnnd there's a huge fire just a few miles from our construction
site. The weather is 90F, 5% humidity, 10mph gusting to 20. As Weather
Underground put it: "Feels like 122F".
terrible. I came down with some sort of summer flu. Yesterday it was
aches, fevers and chills. Today more stomach upset. Gahhh.
Wednesday 1 May
- I didn't head down - the very experienced inspector (an
engineer himself) said that they were nearly ready to go though. Lot's
of brush clearing and site preparation to do.
the afternoon we received word that the fire danger was high, "Red Flag
Warning" and we notified the contractor to shut down until the end of
the week. He wasn't a happy camper, but the word of a fire marshal is
god when it comes to these things.
- Going through the revisions for the submittals again. It's getting
near summer and the job site is in the middle of a park - grasslands
and oaks - so we are being as conscientious as possible about the fire
plan and precautions. I'll probably head down tomorrow or Thursday, as
they've started mobilizing equipment onto the site and can start
shearing as soon as we give them a go-ahead.
- Working a bit on submittals again. The contractor is pretty much done
at one site but hasn't submitted all the paperwork for the next. It
isn't hard but apparently he thinks that if he drags his feet we'll
just let him start. And that won't happen.
- Not much to say. Working on this and that.
There is a good chance I'll be down in Thousand Oaks next week, for a few hours.
