Gas Drilling in the Marcellus Shale

Well I went home to my moms in Northeastern Pennsylvania for the weekend and discovered two things.  First the 91 year old lady with two dead bodies in her house that has been in the news lately happens to live at the house that my grandma and grandpa Butts lived in.

Secondly, across the road from my moms is a new gas well that is being drilled.  They are working 24 hours a day 7 days a week drilling away.  There are also several gas drilling related companies that are springing up in the area.  This is what a typical well being drilled looks like.
