I went to bed last night with rain as the Scattered Clouds we had collected and “weather” moved in giving the area a half an inch of rain. Workers in early today moving out the remaining equipment from the well site. And another rain shower about twelve-thirty that gave us another two tenths of an inch of rain.

Morning 64 Degrees, Wind N at 4 to 8 Mph, Humidity 94%, overcast.
Afternoon 77 Degrees, Wind NW at 8 to 14 Mph, Humidity 65%, overcast and some mist during the day.
We had vehicles in early today, almost an hour before sunrise, yes we are a twenty-four hour gate just noting the outside the normal routine. As I mentioned the other day we are near the end of this gate and today is the flurry or work at the end. I should also note the daylight is shorter and getting shorter everyday.

While the water was “off” I decided to change the filter cartridge and when starting that I closed the valve at the trailer. After the delivery and later in the morning I shut off Busters water pump. Later when I wanted to rinse off a tomato for lunch there was no water, then I remembered I did not turn on the valve at the trailer, I opened the valve and went back to lunch prep and having lunch. A while later a vehicle came to the gate and going out to open the gate I noticed water on the ground and went to close the valve first. After getting the vehicle in I noticed when changing the filter cartridge I did not get the case closed correctly and it took me two more tries to get it right. Now water is solved as I learn two things “again” leak check the filter and double check the connections when connecting hoses. The filter change was a job done in stages that I normally do together in one fluid operation.
We had two cows today, after my wife got up from her day sleep we were talking and I happened to notice out the window one cow grazing across the dirt road behind Buster then the second one appeared out of the brush and they lingered for a while before moving on to where the picture was taken from looking out Buster’s from door (right side) with them continuing on into the brush ahead of them.
