Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Jan 12 - 14

Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Tuesday, January 12, 2016
Morning 39 Degrees, Wind SE calm & variable, Humidity 94%, partly sunny.
Afternoon 60 Degrees, Wind N 4 & gusting to 9 Mph, Humidity 52%, partly sunny.  

   I had stored under Buster for a long time (never know when you want this) a electric clock radio, I got it out and set the alarm for zero dark thirty. When I got up I reset it for the afternoon get up for my wife. When she came to the gate in the afternoon she brought the clock radio with her for the radio listening during her overnight shift. Now we are using the alarms on our telephones for waking up. We normally do not have the telephones on the bedroom at night some other people we hear actually check their telephone during the night.

Morning 41 Degrees. Afternoon 64 Degrees, Wind variable gusting to 5 Mph, Humidity 72%, partly sunny to mostly cloudy.  
I used the radio today listening to talk radio helping to fill the time between vehicles coming or going from the gate. It does help pass the time waiting for vehicles. It seems like every day they are disconnecting the equipment and changing something inside and reconnecting, no picture never thought to take one.

Morning 50 Degrees, Wind E & variable gusting to 1 Mph, Humidity 85%, overcast.
Afternoon 64 Degrees, Wind SE 2 & gusting to 4 Mph, Humidity 56%, sunny. 

Today is our last work day and then a four days off, yea. The days are getting routine with the regular shift change and daily visitors. Officially the work day starts at six in the morning, are required to have transportation available at the gate in case of emergencies, are fire retardant clothing pants and shirt with safety (steel toe) shoes. We have attended oil company safety training, H2S gas safety training and a gas mask fit check (part of H2S training). That is why we have rented a car and if we are assigned different gates we need additional transportation.
