Oh yeah, we got more than they predicted but you can't really measure it due to the wind, but i had at least a 3 foot high and 5 foot wide berm at the end of the drive way which means there had to be at least a foot or more in the road.

Got a call today from the wife while I was visiting Doctor Z to pick up my new ZPlus amp (that will be the subject of another post) to tell me that my upstairs bathroom pipes had frozen! Had to cut my visit short but lucky for me we were able to thaw out the pipes - unfortunately they are predicting another sub-zero day tomorrow.

Copper pipes wont actually fracture until it hits 20 degrees, then you are pushing it.

and if it's close to being over 4 years old, it doesn't have much life left.


The car is only a year old but I believe it has an underdrive starter on it. It always cranks slow-er but one morning it was just sort of glacial haha.
