Hope you are still doing okay Joe. Hope all our Texan formites are good as well. Be safe
Thanks. Yeah, we haven't had a power interruption since it came on… well, I've lost track. Early yesterday? Oh, no, it was Wednesday night. Boy, I'm tired of dealing with disasters that make you not know what day it is.
Last night I "had" to shut off the water supply. I couldn't do it at the meter out in the yard because the in-ground meter box was full of water, so I did it at the valve at the house. We have never gone so far as to shut off water in the house because of a freeze. I guess the reasons were two. One, the City still doesn't have the water pressure up to where it usually is, and two, they didn't want people dripping their faucets because of that. I find it frustrating and dumb that every time there's a threat of a freeze, we have to "protect" our pipes. I don't remember doing anything special when I lived on Long Island. We took in the garden hoses when summer was over, but that was all I remember. Did we shut off the water to those spigots somewhere inside the basement? I guess it's possible.
Last night was supposed to be the last really cold night, tonight might not get so cold. I hope I don't have to turn the water off and on again.
