Tried once again to put up a new post, with predictable results.
Has the 'ville joined the Choir Invisible?
I took one of those 3 day cruises to Ensenada, and the Trailer Park Troubadours was the featured artist. It was a lot of fun, really. Cruise ships may be breeding grounds for every disease known to man, but there were no screaming babbies, so that was nice.
I had an apartment for about 6 years with Jalousie windows. Plastic helped, a little.
I was on the ground floor. The upstairs unit had an open ceiling, no insulation. The heat would melt the bottom layer of the snow, then refreeze into a solid glacier of ice. The icicles were massive, and more than once they curled in and broke a louver or two. I started reloading some 12 gauge shells with #8 shot and rock salt. I'd go out in the middle of the night and blast them. It took a while for the salt to work its magic, but it really helped keep damage to a minimum. FREEDOOOM!
Before I invested in double and triple pane windows, I'd cover them with plastic every winter. Visqueen FTW!
We've had over 8" of rain so far, which is like 4X average. 'course it all flows into the Owens River and heads down to AlterNewt. Use it wisely.
Glad he was able to save it. Restaurant margins can be pretty thin as it is.
Glad I got to see the sun yesterday. My solar panels can't make much energy with the cloud cover. I've had to cancel three appointments in Reno/Carson City due to shit road conditions, too.
Some bullshit, but damn the rain is welcome.
