    Dang! Would love to get 70° weather here. Don't think we'll see that for 4 more months!

    Just checked my phone again and it now says 61 since the sun has gone down. What part of the country are you in?
    Here we can have 20 degrees or we can have 70 or higher in the winter! Some winters are really cold here and other winters are really mild! It was 83 on Christmas Day believe it or not, then my cousin called on video chat from Arizona and said it was I think 45 there and got this funny look on his face when I told him it was 83 here! Lol!

    Same here, never been a fan of winter weather either! The older I get the more I hate it! We got down to -2 last February with about 4-5 inches of snow, I didn't go to work for an entire week! As a matter of fact we couldn't work anyway because it turned out they had pipes that froze and burst!

    That same time you were at -2°........we were at -20°.......colder than a well-digger's a$$. -20° makes the Taco ride really rough. LOL Then again, might a$$ was froze too! LOL

    Damn! Yeah my a$$ was froze too, was without electricity for 3 days! Still not sure if we can trust the company that runs the power grid in the event of another winter storm like that or worse! They claim they've improved it but who knows???!!!

    I have this new piping that's being used now, it's made out of this material that I can't remember what it's called some of you may know what I'm talking about. We had a pipe leaking under the house a few years ago and instead of busting up the floor and fixing the leak the plumber suggested replacing it with this new piping they're putting in all the new homes now that they run up through the attic that doesn't freeze and burst, it expands a little but that's all! I wish I could remember what that's called if somebody knows please post. I still drip the faucets when it gets below freezing to keep the pipes in the walls from freezing! It drives the water bill through the roof but it's lot cheaper than fixing a burst pipe! The new pipes they ran through the attic held up quite well in the -2 temperature, a lot of other people didn't fare nearly as well, burst pipes all over the state pretty much or at least this part of the state anyway!

    Those wind turbines might work in some places.....but, when they get ice they go down.....they have 'em here too but shut them down when a storm is coming and the grid is switched over.
