Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Morning 43 Degrees, Wind calm & variable, Humidity 92%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 6 Degrees, Wind  & variable gusting to  Mph, Humidity %, .

Back to work today at the same gate we were at last week. There is routine here with shift change, vehicles in and later the previous shift leaving. We record company, drivers name, total number of people in vehicle, time in and vehicle plate number. When this vehicle leaves we record the time out. This is two times a day starting when the first one of the shift shows up and ends when the last of the previous shift leaves. The time is about four forty-five to six forty-five vairing from day to day. During the day service deliveries or maintenance vehicles show to provide their service, delivering fuel for light towers or equipment diesel engines. There are sale people that are coming to get a “ticket signed”. These are companies supplying services to the oil company at the site. They need the “company man” to sign their work ticket signed. The company man is the person in charge of the work being performed and must sign for the service provider to be paid. Even our gate guard company needs to get tickets signed for our services.

Morning 50 Degrees, Wind calm, Humidity 97%, mostly cloudy, patchy fog.
Afternoon 59 Degrees, Wind ENE 2 & gusting to 7 Mph, Humidity 72%, mostly cloudy.
This is the work site looking up from the gate in the foggy morning.
The work pace has picked up as the company man does not want any sales people that are not providing service or no visitors that are trying to sell their service to the company man. It is interesting to note that when a drill rig or a workover rig or a crane is put up in the air, sales people from all types of service start showing up to give their pitch selling their companies service to the work site.

Morning 62 Degrees, Wind SSE 1 & gusting to 2  Mph, Humidity 95%, overcast.
Afternoon 6 Degrees, Wind NNW 3 & variable gusting to 16 Mph, Humidity %, mostly sunny.

Looking like the work here will complete tomorrow with the gate job closing at this well site. The crane has been up in the air most of the month and now that I am turning away sales representatives the “word” seems to be out and fewer are arriving at the gate. Even today with the job nearing completion even representatives with tickets to be signed are being told to come back tomorrow.

 This is the work site latter in the day with the workmen up on the man list the equipment is disconnected from the well making an equipment change.
The work finished up overnight while my wife was on shift. When I came in to start my shift she had packed up our things ready to move out immediately. That did not happen there was a slightly smaller day shift arriving and the “rig down” started mid to late morning lasting the rest of the day shift. Rig down involving flat bed trucks coming in to pickup equipment and other vehicles parked on site leaving with most of that taking place by three-thirty. I closed the gate closed gate about four-thirty in the afternoon. This gave my wife the night off and we had another gate opening at seven o’clock tomorrow at another location. Shucks I thought we were going to have a day or two off the gates.

Well site just before I left the gate. some equipment remains to be removed

During a recent password audit by a security company, it was found that an employee was using the password:

When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said, “Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters and include at least one capital.”

What is her hair color?
