Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Apr 8 - 9 - MUD

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Morning 71 Degrees, Wind SE 4 Mph, Humidity 88%, Overcast morning.
Afternoon 87 Degrees, Wind SE 8 Mph, Humidity 51%, partly sunny going back to overcast. There is Mud rain in our weather forecast.

I had a mid day doctor appointment to take a beating about my blood work. Bonnie was able to get some sleep the night before and I was up early so she was able to get four hours in bed before I went off to the doctor. My A1C is high and the doctor added Januvia to my regular prescription list, I had dropped Victoza and gotten samples of Farxiga also. It was a long trip, two hundred thirty-five miles for doctor and pharmacy but I did stop for a few groceries and Brisket for diner along the way home.

closed gates over the weekend
Flow back of the oil wells started yesterday and is “scheduled” for two weeks with crews living on site working four wells. Water trucks are the other big traffic flow hauling out tanks of contaminated water with chemicals and oil. The oil brought up will be piped across the street to the tank battery there that was built there big enough to handle a number of oil wells.

We had not seen the "locals" for a while

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Thursday, April 9, 2015
Morning 66 Degrees, Wind E 7 Mph, Humidity 83%, Overcast morning going partly cloudy.
Afternoon 91 Degrees, Wind ENE 7 Mph, Humidity 43%, partly sunny. The Mud rain has not arrived yet and the weather talkers are now selling the weekend forty percent chance. 

I was up early today for Bonnie to get to bed for a good days sleep. Working the gate today before sunrise I noticed for the first time a flair burning at the well pad (picture above) taken from out gate. I was able get the new Outlook e-mail program working today, finally. Now I have to rebuild my contacts list, then find out how to save that to a thumb drive. 

So the new thing is the washing machine will not drain after rinsing a load of wash. Water trucks and others are coming and going all day, I need Bonnie rested and watching the gate for me to work on the washing machine. At least get the water out and remove the clothes.
