Buster's Gate Asherton, TX - Mar 4 - 5

Buster's Gate Asherton, TX - Wednesday, March 4, 2015
Morning 34 Degrees, Wind NE 4, Humidity 95%, cloudy.
Afternoon 68 Degrees, Wind Mph, Humidity 95%, cloudy.

Coming in if the driver stays to the right side of the road before coming to the turn and stay's on the outside edge of the turn there is plenty of room to miss Buster and us standing there, but when they drive the center of the road the trailer wheels come inside the track of the tractor wheels then will run over the sign that is telling them to stop and sign in to the site. Today the driver runs over the stop sign and proceeds thru the open gate. Very close then backs up to turn the front more to the left bending the gate into a V. it was replaces later in the day with a temporary gate. So this one driver drives over the sign with left side trailer wheels and bends the gate into a V with the right side tractor wheels.

Buster's Gate Asherton, TX - Thursday, March 5, 2015
Morning 37 Degrees, Wind N 22 & gusting to 33 mph, Humidity 75%, cloudy.
Afternoon 43 Degrees, Wind Mph, Humidity 45%, mostly sunny.    
Still cold today and windy but the wind is bringing drying of the muddy road, that is the reason I could put up with the wind and there was enough clearing to have a sunset after a number of days of no sun at all. A high number of sand trucks coming and going even over night to get the four wells fraked. Water comes in via a temporary pipeline from another direction. These are the biggest items of a frak by volume the components needed for the frak. Chemicals come in tank trailer or pallet containers. 

I had talked to two oil company men during the day, nothing. Bonnie talked to one at night and got it done, he was back with a man from the frak company and these cones and caution tape but the cone closest to the sign and the sign were run over the next day. The sign is now in two pieces, good thing it was not a new sign, it has been around a few years. 

The sign was run over by a truck coming  in, this truck is going out 

Bonnie got this setup last night
