Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Saturday, December 10, 2016
Morning 43 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 4 Mph, Humidity 61%, overcast.
Afternoon 46 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 2 Mph, Humidity 82%, overcast & misty rain.

Laredo, we were on our way just after seven thirty, taking about an hour for the fifty six mile trip. First stop was Lowe’s as they had a Black & Decker saw and a Worx Pegasus work table both on sale. First cruse down the isles I found the Pegasus table but not the saw. I checked high and low then a clerk came by and helped me. No they do not have that sale item, not had that sale item in the store since last June, but they did have another item I might want. That forty dollars more but there was more in the package, because they did not have the one I asked for he offered me twenty dollars off the price ($109.00) out the door plus sales tax, now that was a better deal than I was looking for. I was wanting the circular saw to work these projects but the extras are a a plus.
Seams like we always end up stopping for groceries before coming home. But there was a lunch out first at Texas Roadhouse.

Morning 46 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 1 Mph, Humidity 94%, overcast mist.
Afternoon 55 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 1 Mph, Humidity 94%, overcast.

At least the mist stopped latter in the day but the overcast continues. I worked outside most of the day made another platform to use near the gate when are holding it open for outgoing vehicles. That area is sticky mud when wet the more mud we can keep off our shoes the better. I also worked on cutting to size the surface for the computer desk and I purchased another piece of wood for our hassock we use near the passenger chair as a side table.

Thought For The Day – You can tell a lot about a woman from her hands. For instance, if they are wrapped tightly around your throat, she’s probably upset about something.

Morning 50 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 1 Mph, Humidity 95%, overcast.
Afternoon 58 Degrees, Wind WSW at 3 to 7 Mph, Humidity 90%, overcast.

Well into the afternoon before things dried out, misty overcast is continuing. But we are not freezing cold like a large portion of the country with snow falls six inches and above. Other than that there were the normal Monday gate visits with gaugers and pipeline companies in to check their equipment. One thing different is there are oil and natural gas pipelines removing the product. Other ranches the product Oil, was taken off site by truck mostly. One last spring they added a pipeline to another tank battery across the road from the ranch we were gate guarding.

Afternoon 61 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 1 Mph, Humidity 91%, overcast.

In spite of the wet conditions got some work done outside. I cut and made edging for our hassock table top. Now sanding and finish to be done in better weather. I completed sizing and edging the computer table. This also needs sanding and finish.
Overcast continues, broke late in the afternoon with some sunshine in the western sky leading to a big full moon after sunset.
