Return to Stockton - Day 1

Today I was back in Stockton for another drilling job at a different site. We're putting a monitoring well in a sidewalk.

This morning the rig got setup, and began cutting a square in the sidewalk. They got two sides of the square cut, and the rig stopped. They messed with it, and it kept dying.

So they sent out another rig. When it finally arrived they got the work done very quickly, but what should have been a 4 hour job took 8, and what could have been a day to get ahead with drilling, was lost to simply clearing the hole.

Luckily the rain stopped early again, so we were dry when we watching them work.

Hopefully tomorrow will also be a good day for weather.
