The picture above was taken last Wednesday from the first gate I was at. The crane up in the air is where I am at today. The light to the left is where I am located.
I was on the gate site at five-thirty to relive the night watch and settled in for twelve hours of work. Only a sixteen mile commute from the RV park and it is an easy trip on FM paved roads most of the way. My wife relived me at five. Nothing exciting happened today as it is Saturday or weekend routine. Just the workers changing shift and service trucks delivering or picking up. A previous gate guard has brought a television to the guard shack so I was able to watch the early NFL wildcard playoff game, yea for me. Basically one channel on the television a local over the air (antenna, twenty something rabbit ears) UHF digital that actually has four feeds. The fourth has a weather show all day, with the other three ABC, NBC and CBS. The “rabbit ears worked pretty good but did need some adjusting at times during the day.
This picture was taken outside the gate shack.
