Change Of Plans and Extreme Heat.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

I hated to do it but after the Truck breaking down yesterday I needed to use the Car for work today. This will cause a problem until it is fixed because Kathy really wanted to make more progress at our Storage Unit.

On Saturdays it’s nice that the shift doesn’t start until 8:00 which helps me to catch up on my sleep. Surprisingly Paul had the door open Twenty Minutes before the start of the shift unlike last weekend.

He made a “Change of Plans” where he figured we can get a few more days out of the Drive Motor and had me concentrating on the Pump Project even bringing Ivan in specifically to work with me. Unfortunately when we opened the Box that was supposed to contain all the Fittings there was a One Plastic Elbow along with the Two Dozen Metal Fittings that would be welded that were missing. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus Shut Downs they are no longer open on Saturdays so that shortage will be dealt with on Monday.

This morning involved measuring the locations of where not only the Piping will be on the outside of the Washer but where the Manifolds will be located on the inside. Ivan and I are the Two Senior Employees so we think alike and work well together. We were making good progress when Paul like last weekend wanted to change things.

Anyone that has ever worked on Household or RV Plumbing knows how that can be a problem well imagine working with Three and Four Inch Diameter Piping. Moving that a Half Inch can be a challenge especially when there is something on the other side of a metal panel you are about to cut through.

With a lot more measuring we worked out the changes and whenever Paul walked by we explained what was happening and that seemed to put a smile on his face. By the end of the shift he was all smiles looking at the Two Manifolds with all the Holes cut in it. Once the Fittings arrive on Monday the welding will begin.

I was dragging by the time I left at 3:30 and really didn’t think much about it until I sat to relax in the Apartment. The Weather Network showed today as having a Humidex of 111 F (44 C) that actually lasted for Four Hours this afternoon. Even though I wasn’t in the direct sunlight for long periods of time it seemed that there was less Oxygen in the air making it so you didn’t over exert yourself.

Supper was Spaghetti with Sauce and chopped Mozzarella Cheese sprinkled on top.

Our 6 o’clock Local News was broadcasted from London there was no report of Coronavirus Cases in the Windsor/Essex Region. They reported on our Canadian Federal Campaigns that are taking place ahead of the Election next month. They also reported on World Events and that the Temperatures will slowly return to more seasonal starting next week.

After we both enjoyed early showers it was time for me to wash my Coveralls in the Pail in the Bathtub. Looks like I’ll do a Third Washing of them before taking them to the Laundry Room.

Looking forward to Sleeping-In and running Errands.
