Re: 100 year freeze VS Bugging out

I want to check out those iron fireplace inserts. We haven't used our fireplace in many, many years. Would need to have it inspected and cleaned to make sure it's still safe. An insert with a fan is the way to go to ensure you get heat out into the house instead of just up the chimney! Growing up i...

Re: Winter weather 2021

I was right on about pipes freezing: my mother in Arkansas left hers trickling, but not enough. She's waiting on a plumber to see how bad the damage is. It's an 1896 house on pier & beam. We installed plumbing in 1973 when we moved there.

Winter weather 2021

How y'all making it during Operation Brass Monkey, and where? My sister in Arkansas had her propane topped off, and tested her furnace for the first time in 7 years. Her overnight low Monday is forecast as below zero. She's quite indignant about that. She said, "This is supposed to be YOUR weat...

Re: NRA picks Colliers for help with possible headquarters relocation to DFW

Or... maybe not. It looks like pretty much all of this "reorganization" is unauthorized, and a judge who was recently elected to the board is taking a closer look.

Re: Three dead in a fight over snow...

No innocent parties in that exchange. That's not nearly enough snow to fight over, but in snow country, you own your own snow. You don't put it on anyone else's property without permission, ever. When fellow Southerners have asked about life in NH, I tell them the biggest adjustment is snow storage....

Re: The Power of Presidential Executive Orders

As we saw with bump stocks, they don't seem to even have to offer compensation at all. Here's One Weird Trick: ...

Re: Holocaust Remembrance Day

Hitler came into power partly due to the great Depression, and his ability to blame it on big business and the rich. That depression was caused by the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, which required reparations from Germany to all other countries. While the US wasn't a signatory to the treaty, Am...
