hi B - yeah, familiar with PEX. guess to do meter to house, then redo the house, shouldn't run more than... $10-12K...Glad the temps are warming a little and the storm is behind you . Hope all goes well with the plumbing work . May be time to think about pex rather than copper , much more forgiving !
great thot on a day like this! bota always great on a ski run...Good morning. 27* 4-8" of white stuff by the guessers. Happy Drink Wine day. Looks like a good day to stay in the shop and feed the stove. I filled a bin with dry locust and took it in the shop yesterday so it should keep it nice and toasty. Have a swell day men. FS.
and now you got a new battery!Good morning all 3F and out of the sub zero temps finally so great day ahead Nothing broke yesterday but had 1 truck battery go bad , just part of the territory and easy enough to replace Battery was 2 1/2 years old an advanced auto replaced free of charge , no questions no hassle great policy Stay warm and stay safe

In the garage burning hard rock maple and some mountain ash . 73 f on the inside Mark Martin Nascar Thermometer . I fired up the smoker with some Venision steaks with hickory for an hour seasoning . I have 4 white pine logs to buck up that my buddy dropped off yesterday on his way into town from up north . He had a his dual axle trailer loaded to the max from his wood lot behind his hunting camp . Apparently he had all he could handle on the way in , his 4wd duallie was pushing snow into the camp about 1/4 mile of the main highway . Although he has a ford tractor there with a blower that he keeps the road cleared with normally however with the pandemic has not been up north for 2 weeks . I told him to drop over at Miller Time !
Been reading about the Texas power issues. Perfect storm. Big plants shut down for maintenance - so they can go full bore in the summer. Your 10% wind capacity shut down because of weather and ice. Natural gas power plants not properly insulated for cold weather , same as issue they had in 2011. And they say Texas isn't hooked in to the national grid, so we can't help ya.hi ray - had power outage #6 close to 10 pm news last nite... weather. came back on. went for walk soon after. 1 mile. rest of my street 1/2 mile of houses... no power! makes for dark, cold street...

Days are lengthening. With the extra warmth turning top of snow into vapor, sun helped, I tried driving out, pecking with the post hole shovel in between, til 6 this evening. Not to long ago got dark about 4:35 IIRC. Darking now (6:05) a few minutes later. Did put front tires on street and was clearing a bit more for a good run onto road since line of sight is not a lot. Above freezing they project for tomorrow, so may be able to get to the auction house I was at last Saturday. It was postponed a week I found out after arrivingwarming up outside... now 32f! but, alas... that water meter can fill with dirt by itself... good at that! - but it won't dig the dirt off itself... no doubt about that! lol
neighbor said he had to get out and about... on the road, had seen an ad he liked. cabin fever. he likes antiques. out looking at some antiques and found a heck of a deal on an old Motorola ~ sent me this message... said he he had to have it...
