|One Year Ago,
Saturday - Back in Lancaster. Pretty tired.
- OTR. The noise from the restaurant across the way in Channel Islands
Harbor was deafening in the evening. Concert level sound. I'm pretty
sure you need a permit for that kind of stuff. I should have called the
police, instead I just put earplugs in and went to sleep.

- Working, OTR.

Wednesday - Working, OTR.
Here's a cellphone pic of the "Supermoon" from the other day. There was
a high tide that day, highest I've seen at CI, but I'm told that it's
just a coincidence, that the "supermoon" doesn't produce any bigger
tides than normal.

- Working. On the road still.
- Still working. It's HOT in some places, despite the marine layer in Oxnard!
Sunday 6 May 2012
- On the road, down in Ventura.
We are starting off the project by locating access points for the
channels accurately enough to orient the old "as-built" drawings from
the country, so that the draftsman can clean them up for the new
project. Mostly this involves just walking around, locating inlets and
outlets, and manholes, and getting an accurate GPS location for them.
Which can be rather frightening if the manhole is in the middle of a
street - Ventura County drivers are at least as insane as Los Angeles
I'm using a 10 minute integration, which usually results in a
coordinate with a CEP rather smaller than an actual manhole. Of course
we can't always find the
manholes - the drawings are old, channels have been modified, streets
changed, and so on. Maybe 85% of the stuff is easy, the rest takes
The boat seems OK. I always mean to do maintenance in my "spare" time
down here, but it's always so limited that not much gets done. But I do
need to get her hauled out, the zincs replaced, and the bottom painted.
All of which takes $$ that are in short supply :-(
