Saturday…. no sleep for the wicked..
After finishing nightshift at the cloud factory i climbed into bed and sort of fell asleep, only to be woken at 10am with a knock on the door 😣
It was matty and his mate bingo… they’d come to do the concrete plinth to sight the generator and aquion battery …
So from this ramshackle area with the makeshift battery shelter, the lads kicked on and cleared the base and preparation begun.
All with a 1RB… that’s Ruston Bucharist steam navvies … with a number one being a hand shovel 😁😁😁
All the time this was going on, I’d had the generator on, Just because it was a dull day with no wind. The cement mixer was usimg 5kw… that would have drained the battery right down…. the generator would have started right enough, but I’d thought it prudent to start and properly charge the system while the mixer was being used…
This filled the battery to brim full .. happy days 😀😀
These lad’s where cheap to maintain…. i mean… tea’s and coffee…a bowl of chips and a little winter warmer 😀
Hope they don’t want money or something 😁😁😁
Anyway… time for nightshift again 😣😣😣😣
