|Monday we put in the high pressure blow off and heat exchanger drain line underground to grab the existing drain tile on the range.|
|We had one more power wire to put in for the north-side satellite controllers that was on the old power lines. Once the new line conditioner is installed by an electrician, we will be able to completely abandon our old pump station.|
The real reason I am leaving is entirely family related. As most of you know, I am from the Pacific Northwest. This past January, my wife's research operations were "downsized" by her company. This initiated a job search and ultimately landed her a tremendous executive opportunity that we could not pass up. It just so happened that opportunity will take us back to our home state of Washington. We will be living in the greater Pullman, Washington area known as the Palouse. My wife and I both graduated from college there and my wife graduated from high school there as well. If you have never heard of the palouse, I encourage you to Click here for google images of the Palouse. It is one of the most interesting and beautiful places in the lower-48 and we are so excited to be headed closer to both of our families.
I cannot thank you enough - especially my loyal blog readers - for the interest and engagement in what we do down here in the grounds department. Interacting with and educating the membership is perhaps my favorite part of the job and I know that for some of you it enhanced your experience in the club. Hopefully you learned a little more about what we do and why we do it.
I will keep you up to date for the next couple of weeks before I pass the torch to my successor. As much as I hope to shake hands or hug just about every one of you, I know that likely will not happen and for that I apologize. The future is bright at Highland Meadows and I will miss you all. (Well maybe not quite all - you know who you are).
Good Luck - I wish nothing but the best for this "grand old place".
