Frak Sand in a box 
About ten o'clock there were droplets of water showing on the decking we have out trying to keep our shoes's out of the mud. The misty rain continued the rest of the day. It was a busy sand truck day in and out. The first seven trucks coming back out were carrying two empty boxes. Latter in the day some trucks were going out without any empty box.

Hydraulic fracturing (Fraking) the rock under ground to release the oil there. Water, sand, and chemicals all under high pressure done in stages over a number of days twenty-four hours. There were about eleven companies on the project. All this effort is times four as there are that many wells on the pad. The water is piped in on the other side. chemicals come in on pallets and tank trailers. The misty rain has degraded the road to muddy slop and walking without taking care will result in a slip and fall. The road gets gooey slippery mud and sticks to everything it comes in contact with.Truck tire tracks are visible in the picture.
