After action report on Operation Deep Freeze

 We were doing fine last week on bottled propane- because some dumbass forgot to check the big tank outside- until they started rolling blackouts.
We had enough through rotations of the bottles and refilling them that the tank top heaters kept the rooms the were in warm.

The water pump froze up when they shut off  power.
After the first thaw, I fixed the broken fitting going into the pressure tank.

And we had water for us and the horses.
Sometime after, we noticed A LOT of air purging the lines.... more than just normal air working it's way out.
Since everything is soaking through where the water comes into the house at the lower 1/2 bath- I'm betting (hoping) that it's leaking where the hose bib froze solid.

I'll be able to go in through the outside wall and save fixing the drywall right behind the commode.

You can see the water soaking through the 3/4 70 year old plywood.

Joe XIden and the stock market

Right now my stocks over at Robbing Hood are worth a little over 3 times what I paid for them.
I could just have them transferred to my broker at the bank and just ride the slide and hop for the best.


I could sell all but Tesla and Workhorse and pay the Xiden taxes next year.

I'm really leaning towards selling before 0bama 2.0 bottoms the stock market out.

-But the stock market doesn't really reflect the economy- *insert eye roll smiley here*

 Because I was driving to Wetherford to pick up a sacrificial ATV to be used as a band saw prime mover.

Too bad it's the last of them....

Sorry Gregory, it's as big as I could make it.
