Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Mar 4 - 6

Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Friday, March 4, 2016
Morning 52 Degrees, Wind NE 2 & gusting to 3 Mph, Humidity 65%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 75 Degrees, Wind ESE 4 & gusting to 7 Mph, Humidity 32%, mostly sunny.
This is a coil tubing site we are working today (the work the oil company is doing here) so there is so much LESS traffic as in there are no sand trucks. My wife had worked here a while back when the oil company was starting a Frack (fracturing the rock formation under ground using pressure, water, chemicals and sand). This coil tubing job is a smaller work force, so the high traffic times are shift change morning and night.
Work area where the crane is up in the picture, temporary water mail left laying next to the road

There is a work area in the fog
Slow drive to the gate today with the fog cutting visibility quite a bit. When the daylight came I could not see the work area in the distance from the gate area. The shift change is really broken into two parts with the coming is and a while latter the going out. They usually starts with the ones wanting ot quick then a rush of vehicle after vehicle then the stragglers vehicles

Typical water truck
Five water trucks started after midnight last night while my wife was on the gate and continued into afternoon today hauling out water. These trucks kept us busy during our shifts today. In the below picture the temporary water mains to the well area are still laying on the side of the road.
