Haven't had water since Sunday, think a pip down the road burst. On the bright side I got two cases of bottled and my lights are still on. I will say though I hate the fact my house has a raised foundation walking around without shoes for more then 5min can't feel my toes laugh also forgot to buy another sack of kibble for my out side dogs and I gotta ration it better. 30 grackles will swoop down and eat a scoop of dig food in 5min

So every ten years or so, when they get a cold snap, stuff won't work. Then, there's no snow equipment, salt, spreaders etc. not even a snow shovel. Not to mention they can't drive when it's raining much less in the ice..Different world there...


Catch22. Can't just have crews and equipment sitting around idle for 9 years waiting for a10th year event.

Was like a water dept. just up the road, were going to have to shut off water last night for some reason. Alabama Power loaned them a generator so they could keep the water on. Always amazed at what poor planning this bunch down here does.

Thank you for askin that is very considerate of you. I am fine, in fact the women usually say I am finer than frog hair split 3 ways! Well they don't actually say that but they think it I can see it in their eyes. Especially if they were really thirsty and drank more than usual LOL.

But I'm cold. Very cold. I cant feel my fingers or my toes and my stache and my beard are both icicles. I need to pee too but I dont think this will go very well. My bladder is about 45psi but I might have to go inside and squat when I pee like a woman opps I mean Canadian to pee on this cold day

Pipes froze 3 days ago at temps well above zero... Caught me completely off guard because they didn't freeze 10 years ago when it got down into the -20's. Our city water tastes horrible at the best of times so we usually keep a good supply of bottled water on hand... And we've been running out to the farm to fill jugs for flushing toilets and washing dishes.

So other than the frozen pipes, we're fine. We put central heat/air in the house last year... but knowing our vulnerability to major ice storms and power loss I was adamant about keeping the wood burner as a backup. Wood supply was a little lower than I cared for it to be but we will get by.

At this point I'm more aggravated/inconvenienced than anything.

I try to live by "two is one, one is none." And so far it has pretty much paid off.

Thank you, Sir. The information is very helpful

The old single or double mantel lanterns will emit a lot of heat just be careful filling them with fuel I always started with 2 lanterns one running the other as backup , then remember these need to have the fuel pressurized so if it starts to go dim pump it up carefully so the mantels don't become damaged.

Or melt snow just not the yellow stuff !
Hang in there and if all else fails take turns licking a flag or clothesline pole ha ha humor helps is weather like this trust me !

I cannot remember seeing sparrows and what looks like a big wren eating on other dead birds but I have now. Both male and female red birds and spanish doves, then mourning doves were freezing to death and the others birds are eating them.

A neighbor called yesterday and said he had found several black buck antelope froze to death.

I left water faucets running slow in the house and it still froze somewhere plus the septic system is frozen. I have a small heater going in the well house, so still have water there.

Water troughs have frozen solid so I am having to get water out of the well house and get to horses.

I have slipped and fell every day for the last three days. We have a solid sheet of ice under snow and have to be really careful getting around. My feet went out from under me yesterday afternoon and I landed flat of my back. I was lucky that my head didn't hit. Sure does hurt today.

Pretty tough when you are pushing 80. I can remember one time in the 1950's, once in the 1970's and once in the 1980's it was really bad cold similar to now but I was a lot younger then and it wasn't as hard as now.


Sit on your horse on top of a ridge, look out across the country and tell me there is no God.

EF3 with 3 confirmed fatalities and 10 more injured is what the news is reporting. Struck a little after midnight and did not appear to stay on the ground for a great distance but it laid waste to everything in it's path while it was on the ground.

Cedar you make me feel like a sissy, lol. Don't be bouncing around off the ground too much, not good for 'seasoned' citizens like yourself.

Leftlane, the cold your are experiencing is BBQ weather up here...if you weren't that far South I would bring you my 5000 Watts generator so that you could turn on the heat and warm up your fingers...you may just be able to you pee like us Canadian that is standing up while holding a cold beer...

All jokes a side, I hope you guys make it ok. Also very sorry to hear the number of fatalities resulting from this cold weather. We never know when mother nature will turn on us.
