Shipping Container Drop
Low of 42 - High of 100 today. Had one of those perfect - all goes according to plan - Field Lab days! Got an early morning call that my shipping container was on the way. Prepped the area for my container delivery then went for a late breakfast at the Grub Shack. Came back home and entertained some longhorns for a bit. Spotted my container making its way down my dusty road at 12:30. The off-load went smooth as silk....loud/violent silk that is. Beatrice was there to oversee the operation.

Basked in the glory of the arrival of my newest shipping container for a bit then headed over to Chuck's to pick up some rigging to tweak the container position. Took about 3 hours to tug the 5000+ load into alignment and jack it up onto blocks to level it out. Finished up and decided I was due for a shower. The water temp was a bit on the high side so I drained off 5 gallons at HOT water into a bucket and added 5 gallons of cold water. The shower was just right at 108 degrees.
