Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Oct 31 - Nov 2 vote

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Monday, October 31, 2016
Morning 66 Degrees, Wind E at 3 to 4 Mph, Humidity 90%, mostly cloudy fog.
Afternoon 89 Degrees, Wind SSE at 8 to 11 Mph, Humidity 31%, Scattered Clouds.
 Scattered Clouds are nice that means there is plenty of sun but clouds are providing places of shade, it nice when there is shade. It seams the rig parts are here we are still getting a lot of “visits” coming thru the gate to visit the well site. Drilling should start in a day or two. Correction, what I thought was drill pipe is actually casing, because we got ten loads of that today.

It has slowed down some but we are still over fifty vehicles a day coming and going. Five more loads of drill pipe today along with two tank trailer more loads of “Mud”.    

Our absentee ballet has arrived in Cotulla went there and picked it up. We each filled out our ballet and put them in the return envelope. We get to s;eep on it and see if we change our minds.

Morning 75 degrees, Wind ESE at 5 to 8 Mph, Humidity 87%, mostly cloudy.
Afternoon 90 Degrees, Wind SE at 13 to 17 Mph, Humidity 48%, overcast.

Things are starting to slow down here at the gate today or tomorrow the drilling will start. We got two trailers of special drilling compound for high pressure. Now we should see fewer vehicles for a while. There are vehicles that go out for “food” a lunch group and an after work group. From the gate one point six miles there is a convenience store at the fuel stop typical hot food and cold drinks. Some drivers fail to talk and need to be signed in again because they did not tell me they will be coming back.

Well of to the post office this morning mailing our absentee ballets back, there was no one outside interviewing how I voted no television cameras, I felt cheated but satisfied we voted. Because of the late date I spent the extra money for priority delivery service supposed to be at the election office Saturday. In our situation with mail my wife called for ballets, got the printed request form filled that out, sent that back and received our ballets. Mileage,
first we were lucky that someone was able to deliver the request to us here at the gate. Twenty-two miles round trip to mail it back. A phone call to check if the ballet was there yet, yes now seventy miles to retrieve the ballet. After the ballet is complete twenty-two miles to mail it into the election office.

“Fallback Saturday night”, set clocks back one hour before going to bed or you will be an hour early Sunday.
