“The Gate” Batesville, Texas Oct 14 -16

Monday, October 14, 2013

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 73 degrees and cloudy and humid to 86 degrees and partly sunny. Almost seven and one half inches of rain measured in the local area here in the previous twenty-four hours. Buster is ok on this spot, no high water on this location. The water coming down the road is directed off to the side before it can collect here where Buster is parked.

Streams of water coming down the road edges
Even with all the rain and the dirt roads trucks started arriving early to begin their workday. The dirt road to the gate is six point eight miles with some really muddy places that on Friday were just dust and today it is soupy mud. From the gate to the pads are up to 3.5 miles more.

One water removal tank truck got stuck inside at a pad location needing to be pulled out of the mud. Other than that no incidents on the ranch.

Before this rain I cut a relief or this puddle would be bigger

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 77 degrees and cloudy and humid to 91 degrees and partly cloudy.

Nothing exciting today just an average amount if in and out traffic. After dark water for Buster and diesel for the generator was delivered. "Weather" is moving in over night rain and colder forecast for tomorrow.

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 62 degrees and cloudy and raining enough to keep everything wet to 69 degrees and mostly sunny. The heavy rain that was forecast for southwest Texas has stayed north of us with flooding forecast in the area being lifted early.

Nothing exciting today, just the normal inns and outs. I powered up the computer that
was giving me problems the other day and things are working normal. Thank goodness for that. Working with Vista and some of the older programs is a drag. Even this computed is behind the times as windows eight is already a mature operating system and this is windows seven.
