Afternoon 59 Degrees, Wind  at  to  Mph, Humidity %, overcast with some late afternoon sun breaking thru.

I stained the wood today as there was no misty wet morning. Later in the day the gate traffic picked up, no big new project just a higher volume of vehicles coming to and leaving the gate. I went to Carrizo Springs submitting prescriptions some new and some refills that were filled in Pleasanton last. Did not wait for them as it would have been an hour and a half wait. Did our other shopping at H E B also.

Foiled again and a misty wet morning, we had made plans to go to Laredo again today to return some things we got last Saturday and get some other things. Latter in the morning the mist stopped but it is still overcast. Today there were trailers of casing (pipe) eight of them withe the last one out by eleven-thirty. They unload them with a forklift so it is done pretty fast. That will be going in the ground soon and be cemented in place.

 Just a normal day then my wife was up early for me to drive into Carrizo Springs to get prescriptions I put in on Thursday. On the way home I stopped at McDonalds bringing home to Buster our dinner. After a while a tank truck came I thought to deliver diesel fuel to equipment at other sites after another short while a trailer tanker came I just thought fuel delivery to the drill rig. But the driver asked “did the wrecker come yet?”
After that, there was some excitement as three sheriff’s cars and an ambulance came rolling thru the gate. There was another tank trailer that came in earlier and he slid off the road leading to the drilling pad. The wrecker showed in another half hour. The sheriff’s and ambulance were our pretty quick as there were no injuries, just pride I guess.

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Tuesday, December 20, 2016
Morning 44 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 1 Mph, Humidity 52%, overcast.
Afternoon 56 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 4 Mph, Humidity 34%, partly sunny.

Well during the night another fuel tanker came and another wrecker and the tipped over tanker trailer truck came out this morning it had laid over on its right side. This happened on the roadway leading into the drill pad. I guess that ranch area is holding more rain water and not drying as fast as other areas.

Fuel delivered for our generator trailer.
