When we got new phones several months ago,
Verizon switched us to the new limited data plan.
Of course, we get unlimited minutes and texts now,
but the data is limited to whatever limit you want to pay for.
When we were sitting at Coyote RV Resort workamping,
we used their free WiFi, so we could keep our limit down to a mere 5 GB.
Now that we're working at the hatchery, which has no WiFi at all..
we have had to raise our data to first 10, then finally 14 GB per month.
Friday we were in danger of going over that 14 GB,
so we gave our phones & computers a break yesterday.
A lot of the data we're using up is due to the fact that I am still
logging in to my old computer at work and doing work.
Hopefully that will end soon.
We are back on our work schedule of Friday-Monday.
In the last few days we've done some mowing & weeding..
cleaning of the office and feed room,
and getting a lot of cobwebs off of the outside of the building.
There are days when we get visitors to the hatchery..
We give them some fish pellets to feed the rainbow trout.
They are not allowed to feed the Chinook..
only the hatchery workers feed them..
the fish are on a controlled diet.
Every week the raceways need to be cleaned.
They lower the water in the pond (raceway)..
and then slowly squeegee the sediment to one end.
The fish love having cleaner water :-)
While the water is low..the crows think they have a fish buffet.
My job was to stand near the one end and shoo them away :-)
Where the creek water feeds into the one end of the raceway,
I noticed these baby (3 inches long) salmon are trying to swim upstream :-)
I guess they learn early!
Since it was a beautiful day,
George decided it was time to wash Harvey again.
He hasn't had a good bath for over a month!
I helped by hosing off the suds..
Today, George is still mowing,
and I'm about to go out and clean another building.
It is sunny and warm again..
and we're keeping our fingers crossed that it stays that way!
