Well, the gas drilling dampend my holiday
Went up to Hills Creek for labor day. I used to do this trip every year but due to health issues I haven't been north in I guess 3 years. Wow, the first thing I noticed was the traffic! The better half and I went to Wellsboro so she could check out the shops. We waited to cross the street and counted 17 sand tankers in a row going right threw town. And some of the senery is just decimated either by the wells or the large swaths cut for the pipe line. But what really got to me was the light. Over at Hills Creek there is a glow in the sky and it never gets totally dark. The other thing is the noise. I'm guessing that it is a turbine that runs the drilling rig? But that darn thing sounds like a jet plane, constantly. The first night I could hardly sleep.
I really feel for those that are dealing with this daily. What a mess. I realize it's a double edged sward. I just pray that the effects are only temporary. And what is unseen? Thats what bothers me.
On a good note I met up with a fellow huntingpa member and compleated a long gun transaction, nice fellow.
