Colder Than A Well Diggers Ass

12 fucking degrees this morning and Winter is still two weeks away.

The water lines going to the Weasel Den have been frozen solid four four days now. Gotta love having some bottled water stashed away.Even the sixty gallon storage tank is frozen.
Miserable shit.
I see someone did finally cut down that dead tree behind my place last weekend. I could kiss whoever that was.
I have been worried about that thing coming down on top of me since I moved over there.
It happened to my neighbor, there was another one right next to it and it broke off in a windstorm and went through his trailer like a knife through butter and he was in it!

He got lucky and didn't get hurt but I saw first hand what the results were and it wasn't pretty.
I just happened to move into the exact same spot.
One less thing to worry about.
I am just hoping none of my water lines are burst, just waiting to spray water everywhere once they thaw out.
That could be very, ugly.


  1. -12 is what I showed but actually went to -20+. hoping my shit box don't freeze and I do not envy you at all! good luck friend.

  2. I don't know how you do it Bud.

    Leave your water taps open a tiny bit. Burst pipes happen when the thawed water is released and has nowhere to go. I'm waiting for mine to thaw out too.

    Man I could not take those temps.
    Good luck.

  5. Spent 45 minutes chipping the ice from the car this morning only find out it wasn't mine. Too many fucking green cars in my goddamn parking lot.

    My monitor weatherbug said the high for Thursday will be 37 and the low was 25 - current temp was 13.

    as accurate as a TV weatherman.

  6. thanks for the link.... and stay warm for fuck's sake.

  7. Must be Gorebal Warming.... Colder than a witch's tit in a brass brazier down here today...

  8. Plumbing burst in my place 2 years ago. My own darn fault. Did a lousy job draining the plumbing. Mom was dying and my mind just wasn't on the job.

    Took the opportunity to make it more resistant to freezing.

    It's been in the warm and pleasant 20's up here in Northern NH.
