Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - May 8 - 10

Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 61 degrees mostly cloudy this morning to partly sunny 86 degrees. Dew on things outside this morning with the clouds and this afternoon we have has some wind gusts blowing things around.

Slow here this week as the wells have been shutdown for maintenance and installations at the natural gas plant that is behind Buster. The seismic crew’s were is and out placing the sensors all over the other ranch today. This keeps my gate alarm ringing, and I am jumping up for "new" arrivals.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 73 degrees mostly cloudy muggy (94% humidity) this morning to partly sunny 87 degrees. There are "wind socks" all around as the wind, knowing direction is important because of poison gas you know where to go to be upwind of the gas.

Well the wind socks are almost straight out again today.

We get water and diesel fuel delivered weekly by another contractor starting the first Thursday we were here at Fox Creek gate. We received our normal delivery today late in the afternoon while I was in Pleasanton for a shopping run.

There is another oil company that operates one well on this ranch and they seem to be bringing in a work over rig as some of the other equipment started arriving at noon today. Latter I heard the rig broke down on the way here so probably tomorrow it will arrive here at fox Creek Gate.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 73 degrees cloudy this morning to rain in the eight o’clock hour, enough to make some mud. There was a partly sunny afternoon and a cloudy windy evening to 86 degrees. There was "weather" north of us last night, thunderstorms with hail and rotation noted for the possibility of tornados.

Buster is going to get wet
There were some new faces arriving here today but not a high level of traffic.

The "weather" came here tonight as I was showering Buster was also getting a shower from the clouds in these pictures.
