Default O&S. how cold did it get last night?

I have heat strips, insulation and everything else on our stuff. But it still froze, it just now started flowing again.
Thank the Lord it didn't break any pipes. I think I need to go Arctic , global warming yeah right.
Just a warm winter that turned into Arctic overnight.

You know what O&S, I've seen it colder here than I did in Iceland lol.

Tatum weather was showing 10 degrees for last night. No freeze ups here. I have everything well insulated plus I drip a faucet or two when it's forecast for 20 or less. The coldest I've even seen here was 10 below in the early sixties. Don't want to see that again.

I remember seven below a few years back. But all it did was freeze my water tank. This is unusual, I might need to cheak
my heat strips and change them. Even during that bizzard I didn't have any problems. Something is wrong.
Dexter reported 10 also.

Weather bug gives me a window of about four days at 60/ 34. I need to do it then.

Iím good to about -17 at which point I just have to drain a pipe feeding the drinking water. Thatís about where the dishwasher drain freezes too. Itíll get a dose of RV antifreeze when that is expected.

I have a theory on space heaters and house fires and frozen pipes.


I need a kinder gentler machine gun

I thought it was chilly here for February. It got down to 38 last night. What happened to global warming? I guess I'll have to stoke the fire and see what I can do about raising the CO2 level.

I looked at the predictions for the rest of this month and the highest temperature I saw was barely into the fifties. Global warming my butt! Normally, February here is like a prevue of spring.

Heck it's 11:05 here and it's still only -5. Suppose to be -15 tonight! I was thinking about having a weiner roast for lunch......it's convenient to just open the door to the wood stove and cook a hot dog.
