Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Apr 13 MUD

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Monday, April 13, 2015
Morning 63 Degrees, Wind S 5 Mph, Humidity 85%, cloudy morning.
Afternoon 87 Degrees high for today, Wind SSE 7  Mph, Humidity 40%, mostly sunny.
Well we got the sixty percent chance of rain .36 inches of of it, and the MUD.
Buster's Lake
The rain came right after sundown last night with lightening and thunder with enough rain to pause our satellite signal for a while. During the heavy rain a couple of water trucks came in, they had been here earlier so we were able to just wave them in without going outside. NASCAR was Saturday night from Fort Worth, TX so it was a quite Sunday afternoon for golf (Master’s) on the television Sunday. Gate traffic is slow all day and diesel fuel for the generator was delivered early today, walking around in the mud before the ground started drying out.

This dry's slow as it only gets noon sun
Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Morning 63 Degrees, Wind NW 8 & gusting to  Mph, Humidity 94%, cloudy morning.
Afternoon 78 Degrees high for today, Wind NNE 10 & gusting to 18 Mph, Humidity 50%, mostly sunny. Just before two this morning we had another storm with .63 inches of Mud rain with lightening and thunder.
Sticky MUD on the left
An average day of in and out gate trucks water and pickup type and one oil truck making a few trips picking up oil from the temporary ground tanks. So the ground drying will start all over with the rain we had last night. The muddy areas are very slippery around the car and down the left side of Buster up to the generator trailer. I broke down the extra pallet we had laying by the road to make walking planks to the side and back of the car (Tan Jan). The pictures show the lake across from Buster, the wood planks behind Tan Jan and the shinny mud on the left is very slippery. The planks on the left side of Tan Jan, that shinny mud sticks to your shoes and is very slippery.
