    After I crashed last night everybody noticed we had low water pressure, and I noticed this morning, I was figuring it was because there are 10 people crammed in the bunkhouse

    It was because the 3/4 PEX line going in this shop broke, looks like it was chaffing on the R panel

    On the east side where I am setting in my cubby hole with the plasma cutter about 8 feet way is about 1-2 inches lower than the west side where the water line broke

    I guess that ain't so bad, it is 60 feet apart, luckily no water got in the plasma control box

    Damn I need to peddle that thing

    I have never heard of a pex failure, but I can understand this happening as you said. If I remember correctly, Rick lives around 5 miles out of town in the boonies. He is on city water, don't know about septic. That water comes from town is from a well 5000' deep.
    Correct me if I am wrong.

    When John moved back on the farm they wanted $4000 for another "meter" he didn't want to pay for it so I put in a filtration system and get water from the pond.We have a friend that tests water for the city of Paris, and gave her samples to test, it tests as good or better than Frognot Water

    Sometimes if can be a PITA like when it is super cold and I left a faucet running in the wood shop, and the ****ing pressure switch decided to **** up and didn't turn the pump back on, so the filter pump didn't run all night and it froze up. But that was mostly caused by listening to the weather bitch who said it was going to be in the high 20's and it got to 7

    Single digits are when everything ****s up, about the same as back in Iowa except it ****ed up when it was -20F

    How did the city or town know that John moved to your place?

    It won't be that way forever. Denison exploded over night. I'm ready to sell my place and move to another small town.

    Maybe I'll park a trailer in a field in Hendrix ok. Nobody would every want to live there

    It is already expanding out here, the price of land has gone through the ceiling, if we didn't like it so much we would sell, and if it gets much higher we will sell and move to some remote area, where it is warm all year

    Belize?

    Have you ever lived where it is cold? Winters start in Montana, and N Dakota

    One time when I was in the Air Force, while I was in S Dak we had to take a Buff to Minot N Dak to cover one of their planes being not operationally ready for the alert pad, we left on Dec 24, yup the Buff that stole Christmas, as we were taxing by the base ops there was a big sign "Why Not Minot" beside it was a thermometer that read -40F. That is the reason why not to Minot

    Man it gets ****ing cold there

    Yeah but it's pretty, there's plenty of hunting and not many people.
