Not much going on this week. It rained and was cold all of Sunday. I wasnâ€™t used to working such long hours so I stayed in my hotel room and relaxed all day. I watched a little tv and read. I got some bad news about a death in the family, so I started making arrangements to come home for the funeral. I would have to miss a couple days of work, since it about a 7 hour drive.
We got our porta potties cleaned on Tuesday and I used them shortly after. I was surprised by how good they smelled, lemony fresh. When I walked back into the office trailer I announced, â€śthe porta john smells delicious!â€ť Then I noticed everyone in the trailer was on the phone. Whoops - hope no one heard that!
On the way home one night I noticed a huge plume of smoke billowing up behind some farms. It got larger as I got closer. It looked almost out of control. When I got to the corner, I noticed a fire truck parked. It was a few miles away from the fire so I decided it was a controlled burn and the truck was for back up.
