Well the new coffee maker needs paper filters, OK but I did not buy any filters. The machine comes with about six so we are good for the mornings coffee. What you are reading is another trip to town for filters and a few things we did not get yesterday.
We were lucky only one store and done.

Today we had frak tanks start coming in to the well site as there will be a frak of the new well. These tanks can hold a large quantity of liquid 500 barrels (42 gallons per barrel) and the front manifold (pipe) allows them to be manifolded together making a single large tank. This job will have nineteen trailers manifolded together to store the water used during the frak. All this water will be trucked in where on other frak job we worked there was a temporary pipeline laid and the water was pumped into the well site using the pipeline.

Thought for the Day:
Life is not a fairy tale. If you lose you shoe at midnight, you’re not a princess, you’re drunk.
