Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 58 degrees cloudy this morning burning off to partly cloudy 69 degrees.
As it was forecasted yesterday with the load of pipe for one pad, the work over rig is coming in this morning, meaning the gate traffic will be much higher today.
The rig arrived mid morning and the support trucks moving in tanks and other equipment they use there at the well site started before the rig arrived. The pictures show the rig in place and the pump jack not completed, with equipment in place for working. In the right back round is the well "tank battery" and poison gas burner.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 71 degrees cloudy mist fog this morning, just enough to make everything wet burning off to partly sunny 80 degrees. Late in the day there was this red-orange glow in the western sky just above the scrub tree line I could not quite make out what I was seeing then it dawned on me it is the setting sun.
Now a work day means early traffic and then the regular in’s and out’s and the pumping rods were delivered today that the work over rig crew installs. One of these cows wondered over to the road the leads into the ranch to nibble on the weeds there. He posed nice for me to take a few pictures then promptly turned and walked away to the other cow that was off to the right of this picture.
