Tornadoes at the town where I live. Well, several tornado sirens, whether there were any tornados, I have no idea, but I was certainly getting people texting me about the sirens. They went off 3 separate times plus phones being blown up with weather alerts. No doubt about it, not the most pleasant place to live at certain times of the year, especially people that get very anxious about tornadoes, the sirens – they are a bit intimidating but they are designed for that and all the warnings that blow up your phone.
I’m not there. In fact, all the recent tornado warning events? I’ve been out of town. I did drive throw some seriously heavy rain earlier, but I drove on out of it. It wasn’t a big deal tho, hardly any traffic on the road anywhere I was driving, even through the towns. People apparently decided that on a Saturday and with the weather? Stay home. Fine by me!
I’m on the Barnsdall run for the 4th consecutive trip. I don’t actually hate the drive or whatever up here, I just hate the lack of money involved with this run because of lack of mileage.
Anyway, driving up here? I saw 4 of our trucks heading back down – and I mean late in the day. That wasn’t a good sign. They can only use so much ethylene in their production. I looked at the loading schedule – I take a photo of it every week now from the plant to see what is going where - one of those trucks would have had to been up here for 2 days. Huh?
Well I got up here and saw 2 of the 3 loading spots with trailers on them - meaning they are full and waiting to be unloaded. The question is: do we get paid for waiting outside the plant when they don't have an empty trailer available? I have no idea. Everything has changed with this merger and I haven't had to do any wait time up here since before that merger, no clue. My manager is off for the weekend and I'm not going to bother with this other individual running the show. I doubt she would know, but it's not that important to me to find out tonight anyway.
And, my bedroom is occupied again, lol. The grandma is sleeping in there - I did offer since I am on the road tonight.
No boats of interest yet in either FB marketplace or craigslist. Well, there are certainly a lot of very nice units advertised, but will out of the price range I am looking for..
