Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - May 14 -15 moving on

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Thursday, May 14, 2015
Morning 72 Degrees, Wind ESE 4 & gusting to 9 Mph, Humidity 94%, Overcast.
Afternoon 88 Degrees high for today, Wind SE 7 & gusting to 12 Mph, Humidity 58%, Partly sunny.
Making Buster ready to move day. Bonnie and I are leaving this gate site for another gate site tomorrow. I will probably move Buster out of this spot tonight just in case there is rain overnight or in the morning. Today some trucks came in for a wire line job that will start tomorrow. I do not want to be still honker down in this spot when they come in tomorrow.

After six tonight we moved Buster “off the spot” parking him basically to the right about twelve feet. I had to backup and make a run thru the mud and gate. It was slipping and sliding in the mud but I made it out without and problems. Then backing up and parking on the edge of the road. Nothing is coming in tomorrow. I did not get any picture of the mud after driving out of that.

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Friday, May 15, 2015
Morning 66 Degrees, Wind NE 8 & gusting to 16 Mph, Humidity 100%, cloudy, rain.
Afternoon 82 Degrees high for today, Wind E 8 Mph, Humidity 74%, Partly sunny.
Weather dot com recorded more than two inches of rain for the morning.

I was up early with plenty of things to put away, clean and stow wood blocks I use under the jack pads. Clean the dried mud from the last two deck boards and pack them in the car. Most everything was put away before the rain came just after six this morning. Then we watched rain for three hours. There were trucks coming in at five thirty, then a tanker truck and there was enough room to pass around Buster, I planned that well, thank you. There were enough vehicles entering to finish the log page we started yesterday. Finally I moved Buster to the ranch road across from our parking spot. I ran Busters generator for electric, air conditioner and refrigerator.

The weather had a big impact on our day, the company man came about six thirty to access our rain-mud conditions for the RV coming in to replace us and had to leave for an emergency as an RV at another gate was rolled over by the wind gusts, the couple lost their rig and had to be taken to the hospital. Later another company man came for the swoop over. Mean while our new gate was postponed until Monday, we need an RV park for three nights. The replacement RV did not take our same spot instead parking where the pallets were located. The truck got stuck and the trailer was in a good location. They unhooked the truck and the company man pulled the truck out with his truck and we left for the campground, two miles away great. Bonnie treated me to dinner in Carrizo Springs tonight for being a good boy, cleaning some (most) of the mud off the car outside. Inside is next.
