"The Gate" Batesville, Texas Nov21 & 22

Thursday, November 21, 2013

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 71 degrees and cloudy misty rain and humid to 82 degrees and partly sunny. Took a long day to get to partly sunny with less humidity but we did get there. Now the "weather talkers" are forecasting cold weather starting in the mid morning earlier than the mid afternoon spoken earlier this week.

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 70 degrees and cloudy rain and temperature will drop this morning as the front comes thru. To 46 degrees and cloudy windy.

Looking out the gates
The rain came early, before eight this morning and the rain in the large economy size rain drops. They came in showers Bonnie got one before going off shift. I was greeted with another shower with a good stiff wind on my first trip out this morning soaked to the skin on the back side just letting one truck out.

Normally when opening the gates we swing them in and they land on large rocks strategically placed to hold the gates open. But with the north wind blowing that is not easily accomplished and if the incoming vehicle is up close to the gate the difficultly is greater than when they stop further back as some do so I can just let the gates swing open towards the vehicle with wind power. The left gate only has the small sign but the wind does get behind it and more force is needed than the pipe gate seems to need.
