Re: Texas Big Freeze Aftermath

Exactly one week later my next door neighbors finally have a plumber and have disconnected our garden hose from their water intake. Meanwhile the 85 year olds across the street continue to have workmen remove the debris from their home (water pipe bursts). Today it looks like laminate flooring, the ...

Re: Texas Big Freeze Aftermath

Plumbers make very good money. Our plumber works his ass off. His hired help, OTOH is lazy. One of his sons (hired help) told me he wasn't moving forward to get his Master Plumber license because one had to have a HS Degree or GED and the GED classes were too inconvenient for him. *Sigh* Meanwhile, ...

And the $200 billion will be paid by increased homeowner's insurance premiums and federal tax money. The power generators will continue to exist regulation-free and will take their profits.

Re: Texas Big Freeze Aftermath

Meanwhile, our next door neighbors only have water in their pipes due to a long garden hose attached to our outdoor spigot. Scores of homes around us have 12 ft. high piles of debris on their lawns from their flooded homes. Most of them are elderly. IOW, this event is not over for millions of Texans.

Re: New York State Investigations of Trump and Related

Based on video of a previous deposition, the Disgraced Former Occupant becomes a squeaky mouse when confronted with people with raw power over him , and he cant avoid the questions anymore. I disagree. When faced with a competent lawyer, he folds like a cheap suit. I anticipate he will point at his...

Re: Winterization

Heat tracing and lagging. :snip: Yes for sure. I think fuel type also played a role. Wasn't natural gas either not available or outrageously expensive when the freeze hit? I would say location made a difference. Plants not in the coldest areas had a better chance of staying on line. Finally luck. I...

Re: Tiger Woods - "Probably" a career-ender this time

My resident golf addict points out that Tiger is a right handed golfer and the right leg does all of the work (my simplification of the explanation). While the major bone breaks are awful I think the shattered ankle means the end of his career. He will be lucky if he can resume a normal life as an a...

Re: Winterization

I rely on you guys for the mechanical explanation here. My question (as someone who almost froze to death in their own home) is: what did the plants that did not fail, that continued to operate do?

Re: Tiger Woods - "Probably" a career-ender this time

Tiger was a prodigy and they tend not to be raised to be "whole" people like normal kids. Lord knows how he was taught to drive (a car) but I am with neon, he should've had a driver (of the car). I wish him well. I hope he recovers and has some other interests in life.

Texas is (surprise!) the Wild Wild West when it comes to procuring a vaccine.
