Fucking Burrrrrrrrrr Winter 2017-2018

Recommended Posts

It's a good morning to observe a funny FL thing.

FAWN01-05-18.jpg

20's in the panhandle? That's January. Residents will grumble but deal.

40 in Miami? THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!!!!

Miami residents will put on more layers than people in Maine usually need to go outside today.

(And that includes those of us who grew up in Miami but have left.)

Get over it.  It's 9F outside, blowing 21+, windchill -10F, I'm going snowshoeing and will have a blast.  Yesterday I got hot hiking and took off my gloves for the last 10 minutes.  If you exert you stay warm.

Is that legal in your state? Most of the hunters I knew in Pennsylvania preferred to shoot them.  I suppose it's humane if you do it right and their neck snaps right away.

Because the water is used to keep the trees/fruit from freezing.

Clearly, the cold was more powerful than the water in this case. I'm used to losing a sprinkler head or a ball valve or 2 every year. I just found another shot valve in a completely different system. (3 wells, 4 different "branches") Off to the store I go to get 12 ball valves, a box of threaded ends, and assorted couplings..... I have a pile of pipe that was left here by the previous owner.

I watched a crow land on a 5' tall stand pipe sprinkler head last year. It (the pvc stand pipe, not the crow) snapped off right above the ball valve.

i fucking hate pvc,    just found a 4" ball valve that shattered on the rainwater collection system, fortunately it was on an overflow so no loss of water, but I won't be able to collect any...  the important thing is to protect the pump, it's sitting in a shed where  i run a 60w incandescent 24/7 till it warms up.

When I win powerball, I will replace all PVC plumbing, and irrigation with either ABS, or bronze/copper. I will also hire an immigrant caretaker @ $15.00 PMH plus room and board. I will also move back to the Caribbean for two quarters of the year.

I got up and went outside at about 3AM to check the faucets on out piling raised fish shack. Wind just flows right under it and the house itself is pretty drafty. I had the central heat turned off and just one of those fake fireplace electric heaters on in the bedroom and slept great. Outside it was sleeting pretty good and accumulating at a pretty good rate. Might have been some light snow mixed in but I wasn't going to stick around to see. Here is what greeted me at 10 AM. I might have to go find and old flip flop to use as my window ice scraper!

If you have rubbing alcohol and a squirt bottle, just put a 50/50 mix of rubbing alcohol and water into the bottle and spray away. It'll melt that in no time.

Shit Rasper, y'all were lucky. Just a little to the west, in NW Pennsylvania we had to walk uphill both ways to school, no buses, and barefoot!  If we were real lucky our mother let us wear pants instead of shorts, but that didn't happen too often.

These damn kids nowadays have no idea how good they have it.

I pressure tested the citrus irrigation yesterday.... After losing 12 valves to the freezes.... Lost two more. Brought one in to the store to make sure I had the correct one, and the manager says: "Oh! Did you lose that in the freeze?" Yes says I. "They had a recall on those valves back in October. I can replace that for you for free!" Great. Says I. Can you replace the other 12 valves that blew up, and the 17 trees I lost as a result?

"We can replace the valves, but not the trees.....".....

 So unless I sue the valve co. for the loss of the trees, I get $260.00 worth of valves replaced, which I still have to spend my time doing the labor, and supplying the adhesive, and etc.......

 I hate PVC..... Have I ever mentioned that before?

I probably have about a mile of PVC strung around the property and the only problems I've had have been related to neighbor boys on ATV's hitting them. Yes, plural.

We were 65 at noon yesterday, basking in a Pineapple Express. In the time it took me to drive out to the muddy mess I call a farm, get some stuff done and get back on the road to home, it dropped to 43. So the warm hit was short but it was still fun to roll down the windows and crank the music for a bit.

Minutes ago it Fucking Rained right on top of me House

To the point of making mud splatters on the Skylights, well actually clean spots w mud rings about 1/4" in diameter

like freckles eventually the hope is that the clean spots will grow together 

BUT Not because it rains that much, Just that the drops will hit the dirt spots instead of the clean spots again

If not I'm happy to need to go up with a hose and wash em off

I will NOT go wash them or my Vehicles off as "That" will make it actually rain and that's the last thing I want to have happen !!!

Do me a favor one of these days, wouldja Billy..... Go down to just over the Durham line on 17, and get a grinder at Lino's Market. If they have a fresh Cannoli, get one of those to.... There's about 12 different types of sausage you can have put on an Italian Combo if you go there on an off hour. They also have artichokes almost year 'round. The old man loves 'em, so he keeps them in stock.

 

 I miss the old real sandwich/grocery stores..... They don't exist here.

I will try to remember that, but I rarely find myself anywere near that 'hood.  A couple of times I went down 17, then connected to other state roads while travelling from work in Middletown, to the Subaru dealer in Branford, but have since found it's quicker and much less hassle now, to go up 9 to 91 south, to 95 north.  We love artichokes, but have not seen any looking decent enough to pay their outrageous prices, in over a year now.  Castorville, CA is the universal center of artichoke farming. Years ago, Missus BB was running a meeting there and brought home the bestest artichokes we had ever tasted, bar none!!! It still boggles the mind how many people you meet that have never had one in their entire life!!
