IMS - Day # 8 - Traffic Control - 3rd Day

Monday felt more like a Wednesday to me......for some reason my internal day clock is all messed up.  The morning air temperature was a little higher....in the low 40's as we left to walk to the employee check in area, but it warmed up to close to 80 by mid afternoon.

After clocking in at the employee check in area around 6:30 am we were able to find an employee shuttle almost immediately, and were quickly transported south to Gate # 2.  We both started out wearing our IMS issued jackets, but within a few hours I was down to my short sleeves and enjoying the pleasant air.

Here I am in position waiting for some cars to direct!  The incoming traffic ebbs and flows....most of the time we have two entry lanes going full blast, but this was taken during one of the "ebbs".

Dan, one of our supervisors was kind enough to snap this picture of TLE and I directing something.....:D

TLE awaiting traffic to direct!

I took this picture of TLE from across 16th street....this is where all the action is.  Today a late model Newell came in.....wasn't able to get my camera into action quickly enough to get a picture.

We worked until 6 again, and were able to catch another employee shuttle back to Gate 10 where we clocked out for the day.  We then walked over to employee check in to get two clean shirts and turn in our soiled ones.

We were home by 6:30 stripping off our work duds, and settling into relax for a few hours before we went to bed, and get ready to do it all over again.  13 days to go....but we are not really counting down like we did at Amazon.  We are really enjoying ourselves a lot, and the days seem to fly by.  

Tuesday the forecast is for 83 degrees.....that is a big temperature swing, and I'll probably be wishing at some point I could change into shorts and flip flops, but it is what it is.

Thanks for stopping by!
