The work that matters can wait (all-below-grade plumbing) but the two or three not-actually-scheduled-for-today peripheral jobs are more temperature sensitive, and they might not make it until the weekend, (they're the "give me a discount for cash" jobs I don't love)

Happy Holidays
And my GF makes the best homemade egg nog. I can't drink the stuff from a carton, too thick.

I don't look for that stuff, but I know how some folks are wired. On occasion, I play the "Phantom Winterizer" and clear a system of mine where the house got sold, unbeknown to me, and the new owners never noticed the service sticker on the controller, and left the water on.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Recent rains around here are welcome, but if it keeps up, sprinkler work won't get going until April.

That would be a good thing! That way I'll have plenty of water to fill my pool and wash my German luxury cars. I wouldn't want to disappoint Kiril!

nah.... those go to the carwash. I prefer to wash the expensive ones by hand. All of my "American" cars belong to the company anyhow....
