Salutations from Larryville, Alaska, Wheelizens!

We’re not gonna break freezing until late tomorrow afternoon…for a couple of hours. Whee!

SoCal’s gonna get some rain next week; looks like 1.00″–1.25″ over ~3 days in the SFV / Simi Valley. Hopefully, that won’t trigger any major mudslides in various burn areas. (But will be good for business.)

The worse thing that could happen is that Sessions does what Holder did and just do a wink and a nod. Let things come to a head.

With this sub-freezing weather, we’ve been leaving a water drip running to keep the pipes from freezing. Actually looked into this; per scientific research, it’s probably not necessary until temps hit ~22ºF due to water pressure and other factors. But a few extra bucks in water is easier and cheaper than having to replace a section of pipe… Plus, we’re expecting lows colder than 22º the next three nights But every time I go into -- or walk near -- the bathroom where the drip’s running, I hear Dad’s voice in my head: “What are you trying to do…hydrate the… Read more »

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Rain in the forecast? It’s about time! We sure need it!
Sorry about your drip problem, Fatwa. Hopefully it will go away soon.
