For me it was the city water inlet. I had winterized the entire vehicle and at the last minute thought that I should "push the little valve" on the city water inlet to make sure that is was winterized too. Same result. Right in the face.

I'm kinda with Turbs...you should have just done a southern winterizing. The furnace (down to about 45 or so), and maybe a space heater pointed at pipes. I have a space heater pointed at my water filter in the front storage of my 5er, and one at the pipes in the rear kitchen. The holding tanks are of course heated as well.

Not sure what it got to there in LA, but it was supposed to get to the mid 20's here north of Houston. Brrrrr!

In the "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished" department; while snow blowing my neighbor's driveway (he left for work without clearing it), I ran over a extension cord from his Christmas lights he had run across his driveway.

Now my blower had a new set of shear pins so they stayed in place just long enough to pull the auger out of the end bearings...

Hope that is all that broke...


Most likely he will want me to buy him a new cord too...

temps

I would love 30 right now. In North Chili, NY (near Rochester) it is zero at 6pm and plummeting as I type.

WOW I know this cold snap has been rough eh. My hands got real cold at the office. We even had to turn the heater on.

I sometimes wish I could move back east.... Then winter comes.


Hope everyone is safe and warm wherever they are.
