It was 12 degrees here in Ruckersville this morning and -1 degrees at the farm. I sure hope everything is OK there.

Thanks for sharing that. I'm glad I'm not actually in it. I could send you my Fergie, but it would not do much in those drifts. They were using a pretty heavy-duty snow removal tool. I'm fortunate that I don't have your heating bill!

You guys don't want to hear my griping, do you?  It is cloudy here today and only 71. I thought it would be a good day to stain the gate. The stain is too dark. I'll bet I worked all afternoon just to gain a "letter of concern" from the HOA manager babe.

Wonder how Willy is getting along in Tennessee? Those guys are taking it on the chin. Are you getting ice, 75 or only snow? I realize you guys are not real well equipped for either, but that ice is particularly nasty, since it takes down power lines. If you lose power, all best are off. Sam, do you have as much snow as in Boston?

It is supposed to be a mix with I-20 being the dividing line. It is supposed to start with rain tonight. And the sun came out this afternoon ant there were a large flock of cranes over the supermarket near here. I love to hear them call as they fly over.

I am with Mezlaw, I am SICK of winter, Seriously. I have lived here on this place since 1988 and I think this is the worst storm I have ever seen since I have been here and only one other storm when I was a kid was this bad. We were off last Monday for the holiday and got hit with the ice that weekend. The power was off more than it was on a big part of those days. It was so bad our office was closed for two days. Then it opened Thursday on abreveated hours of 9:00 to 3:00. We had so much ice here I just took a vacation day to be safe. I work for a school system and if the kids are out I have no work. But we usually still are open at the offices of the schools.The first day I was able to get out was about Wednesday afternoon or Thursday. The mother in law said she needed milk. I went out to get her some since we have a dollar store about a 1/2 mile from the house. I noticed some migrant workers in there looking at medicine and coughing but I didn't think much about it then.

We had some limbs to fall in the driveway that I had to go around to get out so on Friday I dragged them out of the driveway. Saturday I didn't feel the best and I didn't even feel like working on anything so I thought I was sick. I realized I was later on as I had a 101+ temp. We have one of these new clinics that get you in and out quick so my wife took me on Sunday, I had the flu. They said they caught it on time and gave me the tamiflu . It worked fast. If you have a hint of the flu go ASAP to the DR and get some. It really works. My fever broke yesterday and I feel a lot better. I feel like I am over it for the most part and plan to go to work tomorrow. they said I would be not contageus once my fever broke and it was gone yesterday. I usually get a flu shot each year but didn't this year. The two chances I had to get it at work once I had sinus then the next I went to get it and they left early. Then my mom got sick and I had to check on her place each day after work and go to her house in my free time so I never had time to go by the pharmacy and get one. I am at the point I would love to sell out and move somewhere like Tuscon where I lived as a kid. If I can get the better half to go I would do it tomorrow. Spring can't come fast enough for me.

Well I saw that Mt. Sidney Virginia was at -5 degrees this AM so I decided to check out the farm house. Well I'm here and see that I pipe in the basement must have burst, the water is up to the top step! I hit the outside emergency power cutoff for the pump. I then noticed I forgot to get my phone! Well I got the plumbers office number off the furnace and call him from the house phone and left a message. I guess I'll have to go back and get my cell which has his cell number. He's a friend so he'll answer, but I'm not sure he will be checking his office as he must be real busy right now. Dana can't help me with the number either because she went to Richmond for the day.

I HATE WINTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That has lightened my load plenty, but I wouldn't wish such a plight on anyone!

I'm sorry to hear about busted pipes. I hope that all turns out well in the end.

Well you may wonder how I got the number off the furnace if the water is up to the top step!   I have 2 basements at the farm house and the furnace is in the dry basement so the house is nice and warm. The smaller basement with most of the plumbing is where the problem is.  I drove all the way back to the other house and got my cell phone. It was the right thing to do because my friend John the plumber answered right away.  Well I'm back and John is on his way.  I hope this all goes well.

Well the water has been pumped out and I was able to check it out. The bottom of the water filter was on the floor and the water just poured out. There does not appear to be any pipe problems but the water came up past the bottom element of the water heater. It is severely burned and the whole water heater will be replaced.

That appears to be a mess. There ought to be a way to prevent frozen pipes that wouldn't rely on power that can fail.
