    It would completely shut down my town.

    Everyone's plumbing would be shot.

    A normal year for us Justin gets us to 40 above C and 40 below C. Terrible country!

    Not unusual to see 50 below F, and I have seen 80 below wind chill.

    That'll shrivel the grapes!
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Its funny Butch. We have to bury 6 feet deep and 7 feet under a road.

    Where as Northern Idaho might only have to bury 5 feet.

    A lot of houses here (including mine) are raised above ground with exposed pipes - a real PITA.

    I noticed that from the picture you posted.

    Most of the homes and outbuildings up here are on concrete foundations, otherwise the critters get underneath. Especially skunks!

    I'm sure I've had plenty of critters living under my house!

    My bud had a house in Talahassee area. He, being from the north, put in a pump house to protect his pipes and pump. When you drive around all the locals have exposed pipes. Every few years they are doing major repairs.

    We put our pipes in 3 feet to 40 inches here in western NY. -18F is as cold as I remember here. That is about-28C.

    We got blown out of the woods today.
    A storm front with sleet rolled up, so around noon it got too dangerous to fall any more.
    I was working a bit away from the other two, where a hill redirected the wind, so I could have gone on, but by the time Richard came to tell me they were quitting, I was so wet and cold, that I was more than happy to go home.
    Then as I got home my best friend called from the hospital to tell me he had been diagnosed with cancer.
    A crappy day altogether.

    Sorry to hear it, Stig.



    Just some flurries here. Been enough to freeze shallow pipes around here.

    Employee doing shop work. Getting it really set up more functionally. Sorting stuff out. Changing light bulbs, greasing this and that.
