Busters Gate - garden City Texas - Apr 25 - 26

Busters Gate - garden City Texas - Monday, April 25, 2016
Morning 61 Degrees, Wind SW 8 & gusting to 18 Mph, Humidity 90%, .
Afternoon 91 Degrees, Wind WSW 8 & gusting to 16 Mph, Humidity 11%, sunny.
Sunrise thru the windshield sun screen
Our gate location with Buster is only a couple of hundred feet off the paved road, but the oil company work site is two miles in from Buster. These days the road is dry and the wind is a blowing so there is plenty of dirt in the air and along with that most drivers are traveling the road at more than the posted fifteen miles per hour speed limit. We do remind some but it is a daily training job.

Finding out the windshield sun screen has stayed in place with the wind today. Using the tape on the edge has been the added key to keeping the windshield sun screen in place.

Busters Gate - garden City Texas - Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Morning 68 Degrees, Wind WSW 2 & gusting to 6 Mph, Humidity 79%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 89 Degrees, Wind W 16 & gusting to 26 Mph, Humidity 20%, mostly cloudy.

And the mostly cloudy has lead to a rain shower about twenty minutes long with the bigger part of the storm cell passing north of Buster. The oil company brought in a water tanker to wet down the road dust during the morning and it did help lower the dirt in the air. Now this shower completed the job of lowering the dirt in the air. Lucky for us the other tanker trucks were going nice and slow when passing Buster thus not raising too much dirt. Further in on the road the speed of the vehicles was up and the dirt clouds were very large. The sun screen has stayed in place today even with these wind gusts.

Electrical problems are causing our lights to go off. These big outside lights then need time to reset before they come back to life. Se are seeing flickering in our night light and our lamps are also flickering. The television also went off a couple of times this evening before the big lights went on. The engine is not surging (engine RPM has been steady, not changing down then up) like other times that we have had electric  problems.
