Multiply that by 2 + 1, that’s not even counting the water tankers and all the other vehicles that came through the gate. Needles to say yesterday was my busiest day. Overnight, 2 more came in. The last one left at 4;05 am. Two of the drivers said that they would be back several times. True to their word, each did 3 loads. (those were the ones early this am). Knowing this I just slept in the recliner getting sleep and hour at a time, but after the last one left, I slept like the dead and woke up at 6:15 am. The sleep didn’t come easy in the evening as I could hear every sound as the rig was rocking and the slide covers making noise, with gusts of wind. As soon as I would doze off, the bell would ring for me to get up and open the gate. I only have to push a button to open it, so if they are leaving I don’t even have to get outside, just see who they are and enter their time in the log. As I’ve said before, job easy, resting Not. It is what it is!
Yesterday I had asked Frank to bring me some ice and he is usually here before 6:00. I thought that he may have let himself in, but he was late too. So now I have some ice, definitely needed at 102 + temps. Today will be another hot one.
Just waited to finish the day to see if there was anything interesting to note. It wasn’t quite as busy today, only 17 vehicles, of which 10 were tankers. I did get a call from Jaime to see how things were going and to let me know that he will be gone for a while. Just a few minutes ago, Kevin left after filling my diesel tank.
I guess that I would consider this an average day for this gate.
Hope that you all had a good Wednesday.
Thanks for visiting
