Sprinkler Blowouts For Monday, November 25, 2019

I ran into 3 systems in a row on Sunday that had problems, so it threw off my schedule and I didn’t finish the route I was working on.  So when we are back in the 83646 on Wednesday they will be put first on the route for the day for one of the machines.  I still haven’t gotten my voice back totally.  Right now I sound like Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade.  (Mmm Hmm)

The temperature is going to drop to 19 degrees two different nights this week, and as I have said before anything underground will be fine because it will take most of the night to get to that temperature and then will start going up again when the sun makes its appearance.  Just make sure to LEAVE THE LIDS ON YOUR VALVE BOXES. The ground temperature is still quite warm, but it won’t help you valves if you take the lids off.  They will likely freeze with the lids off.  You can open the solenoids on each valve and/or the manual bleeds if you want.  If you have a backflow preventer or irrigation filter that is above ground, make sure to drain them as explained on our website.

Today and tomorrow we are Back In The USSR, I mean 83709……..  If all goes well we will have 3 machines running in the area for the next two days.  I don’t know from one day to the next if Jacob will feel up to going out, but he made it the last 4 days in a row.  Kudos to Jacob for pushing himself.

Our list is shrinking rapidly.  At the rate we are going we will be finished with the entire valley by mid-day on December 4; not December 6 as I predicted.  Of course, that can change, depending on whether we run into system issues like I did yesterday, or if Jacob doesn’t make it out every day.  That means NINE more working days.  Thank goodness we get Thanksgiving off.  I am more than ready for a break, but I will probably have to spend a lot of the time on Thanksgiving putting routes together for the day after.  Once we start our valley sweeps, we can’t get as many done in a day as per normal because they are scattered around and further apart from each other than during the peak of the season.

Jacob and I will have to cut out early afternoon on Tuesday for a family thing we need to do at 5 p.m., but I think we should be able to work until 3 p.m., so we will only lose two hours each.
