Good Morning, Sunshine!

This morning I saw the sun rise while at the winery, and this evening I saw it set while at the winery. The only difference between a long day of manual labor vs. a long day in the office is the level of fatigue that comes with a physically demanding job. I could probably solve a brainteaser as quickly as I normally do (my brain's not tired at all), but I'm delaying my shower because I don't want to lift my arms high enough to wash my hair.

12 hour day (those are hundredths of an hour after the decimal point)

Tomorrow we're starting at 6:30 am again, but we'll be crushing 9 tons of fruit vs. the 16 tons that we finished today. And we won't be using the must pump anymore, mainly because we're done crushing into large tanks, but also because I blew it up.


  1. Ummm, I think that last sentence warrants further explanation...

  2. Well, the must pump control panel got wet. When I tried to move the pump to clean it, something popped inside the electronics panel and blew the on/off switch clear off the machine. It was a pretty violent short circuit. Crazy!
