you're telling me.  I have one of those expensive adjustable beds.  I think the power cord is shorting out and when I unplugged it, one of the prongs was very hot. 

So, I contact Mattress Firm and they tell me that it is covered under warranty and gave me the contact info for the warranty folks. they denied my claim without even speaking to me. 

So, now I'm back trying to see if the store will sell me a replacement cord. 

I know it's the cord because I charged my laptop using that same outlet and having it plugged in for over an hour, the computer cord didn't get warm at all. 

So I think for several days, I'll be sleeping at a steep incline because I don't trust that cord ... it got very hot after plugging it in for less than one minute. 

as Rosanne Rosanna-Dana used to say, "That goes to show you, it's always something."

Just get a replacement plug for the end of the cord.  Theyre a couple bucks but require the use of a screwdriver and wire cutter.

with me, it's either full bore or all stop.  same thing when I cook, my brother is always telling me to turn down the heat. when I turn on the faucet, it's full blast (then I get mad when water splashes all over).  when I was married, my wife would always get mad because I would close all jars and lids too tight. Guys like me and Andre the Giant are cursed with an abundance of natural strength.  it's hard to control Richie ... it's a blessing and a curse. 


I understand your pain. It’s not easy being a mans man -

Richie is the real man's man.   Personally I'd rather be a woman's man.

Mornin' All

You folks in TX OK?

 

By the forecast, looks like winter is over for us.  A week of 60` high is enough winter for me.  Temp jumps 10` today and 10` more tomorrow. That should thaw TX.... enough to see water lines that burst with the cold... Feel sorry for y'all.

 

We are at a near crisis level of coffee beans.  A trip to the store or roaster will be in order before tomorrow AM.

Time for me to start softening some ground for a garden. Anyone have any dynamite?

Thawing out and I actually got to take a shower today.  Things are looking up here in SE TX.  The northern part of the state is still hurting from what I've read.

It's still 22F in the DFW area now (Friday 9 am).  We should see temps above freezing - mid30's - for a few hours today.  Starting tomorrow the warm up begins, with Mon-Wed in the 60's.  When the thaw starts, the work will begin. Hoping for no burst pipes in the house.

I'm glad things are starting to look up, being in a cold climate and worrying about heat is no fun, and it's dangerous. 

 

Be a good time to start an insulation company in Texas.

is your main water supply  from  the street frozen ---if yes and you can shut the main valve of water that feeds the house -------shut it   ---

 

- if there is no such valve ,  and you can have access to the main water pipe  -----install a shut off valve    -----shutting the water will avoid bursting the pipes  ,when it's back to normal -  open the valve , gradually -

You won't know if you have a leak until it thaws. Leave the valve on if you're there, water under pressure has more resistance to freezing, but you don't want to be away when it thaws.

Thanks, fingers and toes crossed here!

 

I suspect the pipes in the house will be OK.  The outdoor spigots on the sides of the house were covered but I need to keep an eye on those when they thaw.  Pool equipment and plumbing is shot.  The ice sheet on the pool is 2" in the thinnest spots. I cannot even hack through the thick areas with an axe.  Probably could have skated LOL.

I left the water on at the meter near the road, and allowed the indoor faucets to drip throughout the great freeze.  I do have the t-handle handy just in case I need to shut of the valve!
