Little dirt road river

Rig people change from crew to crew learning new face’s, different licence plates on different vehicles. These will be on site for two weeks for the drilling company. The rain has hampered our ability to do anything outside. The water has given me some trouble keeping the outside lights on as there is a ground fault receptacle keeps popping. We have a couple of cables ganged together and I think that was the problem area. After covering them with plastic bags it has been OK since. But just getting to the receptacle the mud on the shoes. Mud rain .65 inch what a day.

Walmart boots, we finally remembered our “boots” (picture) these work well keeping our shoes from being full of the mud while walking around Buster or betting to the generator trailer.

Afternoon 75 Degrees, Wind SE at 3 to 4 Mph, Humidity 50%, partly sunny.

 Finally some sunshine, for a nice Sunday with slow vehicle traffic. Some people left for a week and some new arrivals again for a week. I have come to the realization the working together of employees from the “big names” in the oil industry. These people from the “big three” Haliburton, Baker Hughes and Schlumberger. This drilling company has people from all three here doing their specialized tasks.

Vehicle traffic very busy today after a nice slow weekend all different companies coming in to check on their equipment and starting new jobs this week.

it has finally dried up enough to walk around outside Buster without mud sticking to my shoes. I have been feeling stranded not wanting to go around the sides of Buster without the “Walmart boots”, now I can. You do realize the “boots” are a limited supply, you have to purchase things to get the bags, ha ha.
