Like most places it's been very hot here in SoCal. Arrived at the cg around 3pm and started setting up camp. At 3:30pm the power went out in both campgrounds (I'm in the new area). I was happy that I had recently got a power surge protector despite the cost. While I did have a plug in fan running the A/C was off.
One of my campsite neighbor said his buddy lost the A/C unit the day before. It seems that there been several brownouts and blackout here. In the older cg the sewer system was out of service too along with the power blackout. The park closed the restrooms and the water splash area was affected because of the pumps and no power.
Had a good view of the fireworks which seemed to had ended without the big display. About 90 minutes later the fireworks started up again after they got the fire out. During part 2 of the fireworks a fire broke out on the other side of the hill. Once I could see the fire engines lights I felt better about going to bed.
Ok, here is where I'm going to comment upon the noise at bedtime. 11:15 pm and a brunch of young kids were still out riding bikes, screaming and playing loud. Around 11:30pm I heard another campsite say very loudly "Guess we have to listen to this all night". Don't think the parents heard because they were as loud as the kids and were around their trailer about 8 sites down.
Around 9am this morning we got the power back on. My A/C unit really works well. No problem with it cooling off the tt. I am looking at this experience as a pre-start to dry camping
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
