My Sunday job was to watch Ed work. I sat in the shade while hung-ho Ed was trying to repair his high-cap circuit. My real goal was to find shade and keep somewhat cool. It’s not even summer and we have had triple digit temps lately… Hasn’t anyone noticed the sun feels more intense lately?
If it wasn’t for the foot of mud in the manhole, I’d take Ed’s place. I think I left my mudboots at The Firewood Temple. It could be worse, I could be on straight time and it could be even hotter than it is now. Pinole California does get a breeze off the San Francisco Bay but today it’s barely rustling the leaves of trees.
Ed is so excited about working in the manholes. The one good thing about manholes is it stays exactly at 55 degrees. Other than being dark and dank, it’s comfortable… This too will pass
