I'm a planner. I like to know where I am going and what I am going to be doing when I get there. I'm trying to learn to be flexible but it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks :-). This gate guarding life is not suited for a planner since so many things seem to be done or decided at the last minute. I'm doing my best to learn to "go with the flow".
I have been "working the beat" trying to get information on what the immediate future holds here at the gate from just about anyone who is patient enough to answer my questions. The rumors are running like wild fire and know one seems to have any firm information on what will happen. Rudee is my alter ego, she can "go with flow" and I think I am driving her nuts :-). I guess opposites do attract :-)
One thing for sure, there is still work to be had as a gate guard so there is no need for me to sweat it out trying to figure everything out before it happens. As Rudee reminds me, "patience big boy".
Sunday night and Monday morning are shift changes which keeps our gate busy. I had several of the workers coming in overnight. I'm not sure why they show up at 1am for their 6am start time, seems like they are making it a little harder on themselves than it has to be.
The temperatures are supposed to be near or below freezing tonight so I disconnected the power to the water pump and drained the hose that connects our 5th wheel to the large tank outside. We will run off our on board tank for the night. They are saying the rest of the week will be warmer with sunny skies. Now that's the kind of winter we like! I'll keep you posted.
