Got home about two weeks ago, catching up with chores. Been on the road for the last year and half, in the northern panhandle of WV in Moundsville WV 6 months, and the panhandle of Texas in Borger TX 11.5 months, near Mr Phillips first Refinery (P66) near Amarillo.
Both were Cryogenic Gas separating plants, all the gas vapors formally flared off at well sights, now piped to plants for separation for sellable product. Each Carbon chain condenses at a different temperature allowing for easy separation.
Main problem was the 50-60 hour work week, normally I work 84-94.5 hour or longer weeks, when on the road. Can't make $$$ at 50 hours when out of time, and don't have my shop to work in, killing free time.
Insane Weather here at home, last month there was record of 6 days the low was 86 degrees around 6am, high humidity, w/heat index 101 - 104 and temp gets warmer as sun rises. Record heat last week of 96, yesterday high 83, with 19 inches rain 75 miles south west of me and 30 inches overnight last night north east of me, high of 74 today, tomorrow it will be 92, and humid due to the several of feet sanding water in some areas.
Houston/Galveston, nice place to visit in January, but would rather not live here, looking forward to retiring and moving back North.
Ready to build new Cement block walled shop, with EFIS exterior to provide thermal mass storage on interior of shop, plan to be +/- 3500 sqft, fire safe for welding and forge/anvil use, Hurricane resistant as well.
