Who Turned The Heat Off???

Posted by on January 28, 2014

Brrr….started my shift off at 33 degrees (feels like 22), high winds and light sprinkles!  Luckily shift change was almost over and there wasn’t much traffic to have to make me go in and out the door much.

Traffic stayed light for much of the day.  Just a few supervisors here to check on their crew and some equipment pick ups and drop offs.  I was thankful for low traffic as the temperature never got much higher than 35 and then sprinkled a couple of times over the course of the day.  I did a lot of hanging out the door to get license plate numbers and waving people on.  Brrrr

Filling the water & the diesel all at the same time.

Filling the water & the diesel all at the same time.

Michael had called our service guy yesterday to let him know that we were down to 40 gallons of diesel.  That’s when they ask that you give them a call as it gives them a couple of days to get here to fill.  The generator uses roughly 10 gallons of diesel per day.  We started with about 200 gallons on the 13th so we’ve gone 2 weeks on a tank…not bad.

Jesse wasn’t able to make it here yesterday but got here at about 12:30 pm today.  He filled both our diesel and water tanks so we should be good to go for another 2 weeks or so.

The oil company safety guy we’ve been dealing with since we got to our gate left for his 2 weeks off this morning.  His replacement stopped by around 3:00 pm.  Seems a bit more by the book than the other guy but we can work with him.  He wants daily personnel counts of everyone that comes in the gate.  Not a big deal.  We’ll just have to pay attention to how many people are in each vehicle as they come in, notate it and then email him each morning with the prior days numbers.
