    Crews were able to refill the MUD district's water tank, so we were able to turn the water back on. I did finally get to have a hot shower. Power is currently on. Fingers crossed that it stays on tonight. That is supposed to be the last of the really hard freezes.

    Texans

    Most homes in Houston are built with the option of gas or electric. Ours and most of our neighbors have gas fired furnaces. Of course the controls and blowers are electric, so that doesn't help when the power is out...

    Texans

    Glad you're doing all right. Out here on the west side, we lost power at 1:00 AM on Monday. Fired up my 5.5k genset which I'm sure pissed of the neighbors... Anyway, it will run a couple of space heaters, couple of lamps the fridge, laptop and TV. We're watching DVDs as there is no cable and Internet is spotty. If we unplug the fridge, we can run the microwave and the toaster. We can cook on the grill and have bottled water left over from Harvey and a rapidly diminishing supply of firewood. We are much better off than most. No pipes burst yet, but there is so little water pressure we had to shut off the main and drain the house. The power is back on at the moment, but the rumor going around that it will only last about 4 hours. We have enough supplies for another 4-5 days, enough gas to run the generator another 30 or so hours and enough firewood for tonight and tomorrow night. I sure hope Friday is warmer and the power stays on and the water comes back. I would really like to take a hot shower...

    COVID 45: Picture's Worth 1000 Rolls of TP

    Wasn't it Trump that declared a National Emergency? That's why I stay away from PA and most of SA these days. I'm just finding it hard to relate.

    I guess you thought it was clever, or funny, or cute. You were wrong. But that's actually OK. It's a free country - for now.

    More Teachers Behaving Badly

    What a revolting sentiment...
  8. Perhaps in your world. I work for a State Agency, and a signed MOU is a binding legal document, in other words, a contract. In our case, it is usually between the State and a third party that undertakes to act on behalf of the State in some capacity, be it operating a facility, raising funds or what have you. I could also be an agreement between States for whatever reason. Many people treat these as non binding to their peril. I suggest you consult an attorney who is well versed in govt. regulations before spouting such nonsense, or at least don't attempt to agree to an MOU with a governmental agency until you do. He steps off his soapbox, and agrees not to post on PA for another 6 months at least. What a cesspool this place has become.

    Ah sounds like good times. Definitely not the boat I was thinking of.

    Tracking the Lindenberg 28's

    There was one in Texas in the late 90s. I ran into it on Lake Waco, but it was from Dallas or Canyon Lake. Don't remember which.

    Yes it's as ugly as sin. Perhaps even worse, but it would make an awesome committee boat...

    Details please. At the age of 52, I'm having a little trouble figuring out which war HR would have served in. First Gulf War? Have to be - too young for Nam. More likely Grenada or Panama... Unless he was a career NCO or officer, he'd likely be too old for GW1.
