Highs in the 20's on tues and wed. WTF?

Make sure the hose bibs are cut off.
Be careful with space heaters.

Actually, it's spelled bibb.

Not exactly the kind of word one would learn at Strayer.

But when your plumber calls it that, it's going to take about a half a weeks pay to replace it.

Vexxxed...go have a Coke and a smile and ah...shut the fuck up, how 'bout? Stop crackin' people's tits and bustin' people's balls on semantics to try and make yourself feel better.

I was born and raised here in NOVA and I've never heard the term hose bibb uttered here before and I've contracted 2 new home builds. We call them FAUCETS here.

Faucets are found in a bathroom or a kitchen.

Hose bibbs are found where you'd connect a hose. See how simple that is?

Contracted 2 new home builds? That's impressive. Did it take long for your wife to pick out the counter tops and flooring?

How can it be semantics if you've never heard or used the term before?

signed, Not a plumber either

LOL! Contracted 2 houses? Doll houses with pretty faucets?

Would love to see those homes.

Is saying "you live in a condo" considered a put-down in Northern Virginia? Is that some kind of white, cracker-ass cracker, yuppie, government job-having upper middle class cracker insult around here?

And...hose bib sounds like something the English would say, like calling an umbrella a "bumbershoot".

Some white-ass cracker-ass crackers in NOVA.

You can take you 3/4 emt and cram it in your 1900 box. While your at it take some 12-2 bx cable and ram you know where, its just like a set of ben wa balls.

Touchy. Just remember who wire nuts the peckerhead for the pumps so you can move water thru the pipes. Sometimes gravity sucks.
12/2 mc isn't rated for what I work with.
Just fuckin with you. Plumbers do have a shitty job.

Make sure you check you're petcock first to remove unneccesary pressure and reduce the change of pipes bursting.

Heading to work this morning, I pass by a house in the neighborhood whose yard is covered in frost. Upon closer inspection, it looked like each blade of grass was covered in ice. I'm guessing their sprinkler wasn't properly serviced (or wasn't serviced at all and the water was left on). The gutter in front of their house had a good layer of ice on it.

It was still like that when I drove by on my way home this evening.

Whoops!

I will never forget being in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in December. Literally walking out the door and watching my snot freeze instantly..as well as my facial hair.

It's not that bad out there. I took a 30 min walk last night and will again tonight. Whenever someone says its cold, I think back to the 3 weeks I spent in North dakota back in Januray of 98. The high never got above 10 and since its flat as fuck out there the wind just whips across everything.
