days 3 & 4

Good; things are going pretty great.
  Sun rise was pretty awesome.
    I feel like I am starting to get the hang of this stuff..Today however was new again; got to see the blender in action. When we showed up to location; there was a dusting of snow, and everything was covered up in tarps. Apparently when the sand and the snow, mix, they get messed up. All this was still in the dark, but soon enough the sun came

     So then we pumped for a while, got to see the blender, where the sand/water/gel is mixed, and it went pretty smoothly other then a bad fuel pump, so we got that replaced and finished pumping . The guy from Brigham Oil shows up and gets us all steaks/potatoes/ and pie for lunch. Soo good. 
In the afternoon it was very windy, and the wireline (cablers, which send the explosives down hole with wire) guys had called it because they have this 60-100ft crane which can only operate safely at wind speeds less then what it was blowing at today. So we replaced valves, broke some pumps down, rebuilt them, and layed low the rest of the day.
       It was kind of frustrating getting hindered by the wind, but its just like lighting on a canoe trip; better safe then sorry...Getting struck by lightning prob just as bad as tipping over explosives dangling at 30+ feet.
dinner; steaks/shrimp/mex salad
well gotta get that laundry done.
