Put your faucets on drip!

Postby DamianaRaven » Sun Dec 31, 2017 8:45 pm

The mods can move this thread if necessary, but I wanted to post it as a reminder to TURN ON YOUR FAUCETS this week to keep your pipes from freezing up and bursting. Even if you rent a place, it'll still be a COLOSSAL pain in the ass to deal with, one that might turn your landlord into an accusatory asshole. Plus, depending on who's paying the water bill and where the burst happened, you could be looking at HUNDREDS of dollars worth of leaked water. It's not worth it, so just turn it on. Go do it now, while you're thinking about it!

An alternative is to live in a place that doesn't become an icy hellscape during the winter.

Born and raised Californian. I could never live anywhere cold.

I'll take a few months of cold over random rapid wildfire. And what's a drought like?

I almost put on the A/C last night, but to save energy I decided to turn on a fan.

MEANWHILE, IN FLORIDA!

Actually, last week, it snowed up here in North Florida.

It snowed in Austin a few weeks ago for the first time in years, which made me happy, but cold weather never lasts long in Austin. It was up in the seventies a few days ago before dropping into the mid fifties, which still qualifies as beautiful spring weather by New England standards.

Which means that I'm sitting outside in my shorts enjoying the weather and Texans are bundled up in coats and scarves complaining of the cold.

And yet "summer's just around the corner" is never far from my mind. Anyone who is jealous now can take comfort in the fact that I'll be miserably hot starting late April.

Yep. The heat here can seem very much like a physical presence.

Man created logic and because of that was superior to it. Logic He gave unto me, but no more. The tool does not describe the designer. More than this I do not choose to say. More than this you have no need to know.

Based on my experience with Californians outside of their natural habitat, you could, actually. You'd just complain constantly (not just about the weather but the costs of food and heating as well) and make everyone around you wish that California would slide into the fucking ocean already.
