The Original Ranch, Lakewood, NM - tires

Thursday, August 23, 2012

The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 71 degrees and mostly cloudy to 91 degrees and mostly cloudy with a rain shower at dinner time.

Right front tire
First thing in the morning I went to lowes in Carlsbad to purchase plumbing parts to repair the three water leaks outside the old laundry. On the return trip there was a slapping noise I heard coming from the right front tire, stopping to check there was some of the steel belt coming out of the tire. I continued home at a slower pace with no problem. Mike went ahead with the repair and I took Silver Sally to get new front tires.

Left front tire
These tires were on the car since July 2010, 29,566 miles driven plus the towed miles of almost twenty thousand miles.

Here at the ranch we have water meters on the wells and we track the water pumped and the number of rigs occupied to get a gallons per rig daily average. The average for Tuesday was seventy-four. Our experience has shown us that an average above sixty means there is a water leak somewhere in our distribution system. We had been tracking above sixty for quite a while but were unable to locate any big water leaks. Wednesday with the water shutoff to the leak area the gallons per rig daily average dropped to forty-eight and today’s average was down to thirty-five gallons per rig. There is not water going into the old Laundry building now.
At four o'clock Bonnie and I went to happy hour at the ranch house.
