Buster's Gate Asherton, TX - Friday, March 13, 2015
Morning 54 Degrees, Wind NNE 7 Mph, Humidity 82%, partly cloudy.
Afternoon 75 Degrees, Wind W 4 Mph, Humidity 34%,  partly cloudy.

Today Bonnie and I watched the sunrise together then I went to town shopping and post office. The stores are small both Walmart and H E B Grocery and a limited selection compared to shopping in Pleasanton, makes us spoiled. I also stopped at the hardware store looking for a shoe scraper.
Shoe Brush Mounted to the Deck

Years ago the scrapers were mounted on the porch outside to clean mud off shoes. Not there now so I looked around Walmart no, but then the thought came of a hoe laid on the ground and the blade up, shoe scraper. I purchased a hoe and laid it on the ground under our walking deck to hold it in place. So far it is working great but there is very little mud right now. Maybe this will scare off any more mud coming here to this gate, we will see as the weather changes from winter into spring.

It has been quite here all week starting Sunday with the remainder of the move out of the frak equipment. A grader and roller have been brought in and working all week to cleanup the well pad after the frak equipment was moved out. OK there really was no work getting done Sunday and Monday even Tuesday, with the muddy conditions. Yesterday and today there were just over a dozen loads of caleche brought in by belly dump trucks filling the holes of the pad, for the next phase of the oil well completion.
