Well here we are on Christmas morning and poor ole Santa is going to get very wet and Muddy getting in here to deliver our presents.
Day before yesterday it started raining here and it has been mostly none stop every since. On Friday the pad construction crew decided to deliver
Chechie to cover the new pads that they are getting ready for the drilling rig. Bad move as we had 1.5 inches of rain the day before and the county road from the highway (1 mile to the gate) was still very muddy and it took its toll on the trucks 3 had there bumpers bent 2 overheated from mud in the radiators and 1 got a 4″ crack
in the oil pan. We were to get 300+ loads however they decided to stop the effort after 50 loads and said they will try again next Tuesday. Don’t know if that will happen as it is still raining and to get to the gate to open it for traffic is a real job. The Mud will try to take your shoes away.
Reeally feel for the guys on the rig they are trying to do a wash down and get ready for a move to the next pad. And the vehicles are having a hard time of getting in and out to get the work done.
Our new diggs are getting quite a break-in also. what a mess trying to leave the Mud outside. We have to pull off our shoes upon entering and put them on upon exiting. the trip to the gate is around in front of the rig as we have a turn to the right just in-side of the gate.
