How deep are the water lines buried to handle that ? 

8 feet deep is the minimum typically for this area. Has to be insulated if it crosses a sanitary or storm sewer line.

Somewhat off topic, but the one thing that has not been on the local news are ...."house fires" ... usually every winter during a cold snap there is a house fire. Be it they stoked the woodstove to hot, plugged in a bunch if electric heaters, etc. But so far this cold snap it sounds like everyone has remained safe.

It was 10 above here at 8AM when I went out to start moving snow with the Hydro 186. I guess that's warm compared to some of you guys. Supposed to be -5 tomorrow morning.

We're nothing like the Canadians but we reached-10F this morning. Broke alot of daily records at many locations round here.

Our 6 inches of snow isn't leaving and there are very few snow plows. More road graders. No salt spreaders. Most everything is shut down for snow and energy conservation.

And I'm lambing outside! We've only lost two so far.

Were supposed to get another half foot tonight.

Thx-Ace

Got down to -17 Monday night here at the Des Moines airport. Had UPS and FedEx cancel flights. Tonight FedEx cancelled there flight because it was snowing in Memphis. American cancelled a few flights cause Dallas was having bad weather. Tonight we had to preload a few overnight  planes for American so they could run there APU's to keep planes warm. And our fuelers are out in it till they get done

We had -10 last night and it is supposed a little worse tonight but the wind won't stop. Around -25 wind chill all day. So you have it worse temperature wise.

They didn't have money for thermometers had to wet socks and see how long it took to freeze. Or it got so cold boulders broke or the cows froze in thier tracks. ?

1 of my drivers has been out the last few days because his parents house burned on Sunday night. It still happens....just not near as often and not big enough to be "newsworthy" these days...

At least the cold snap should put an end to the ice fishermen falling through the ice....

That's a BIG plus.

Howe’s that global warming working out for y’all ?  Like to meet the a-hole that coined that phrase and let him know ?

That's why the new term is climate change.
