Morning 44 Degrees, Wind SE at 3 to 4 Mph, Humidity 60%, mostly sunny.

These past two days and today have been busy during the day with vehicles in and out in almost steady stream. Today seemed the most as I did not try and get any computer time (interruption) at all today.

Busters Gate Catarina, TX - Thursday, December 22, 2016
Morning 53 Degrees, Wind S at 5 to 8 Mph, Humidity 93%, overcast.
Afternoon 66 Degrees, Wind NE at 4 to 7 Mph, Humidity 44%, overcast.

Oil and filter change for our generator today, it is running twenty-four hours, seven days-a-week. The oil change is done about three to four weeks. This trip they even changed a fuel filter and the eternal fuel pump between the fuel tank and the engine. They were here a couple of days ago and noticed the pump there was not working at all. Being the fuel was pump was not working they changed that also but, left the power off and the engine is working fine.  

Easier gate day, lower traffic winding down to a holiday weekend.

Morning 53 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 2 Mph, Humidity 93%, overcast mist.
Afternoon 67 Degrees, Wind variable, calm to 2 Mph, Humidity 86%, mostly cloudy.

Water pump, we have been noticing the water pressure pulsing mostly when showering and the worst part of that is water temperature changing to cold and then to scalding hot. I had been thinking it was the low water level in the tank but I noticed the water level yesterday (not too low) and how the shower went last night.

Morning 64 Degrees, Wind NNE at 2 to 4 Mph, Humidity 93%, mostly cloudy.
Afternoon 85 Degrees, Wind SE at 3 to 7 Mph, Humidity 36%, partly sunny.

So today I said to myself we have a spare water pump on the trailer why not change out the pump that is there with the spare one resting there in the box. So I made it happen and had a good shower with steady water temperature.

 Slow day few deliveries and gaugers.

Afternoon 82 Degrees, Wind SSW at 10 to 25 Mph, Humidity 54%, sunny.

Well I was awake early, the sound of the generator pulsing or surging. I got up and went up front some time after four am. The surging started again as I was now dressed I went to the generator looking for leaks or something wrong, nothing was noticed out of order. I went back into Buster and it started again, this time I noticed our outside lights go off and remembered then turn on the external fuel pump, I did that and no more surging after that.

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone, hoping all had a nice CHRISTMAS day.

There were a few gaugers and one person shift change but no deliveries.
