    Had my first repair job of the year the other day.

    Of course its 1.25" poly which is very rare here.

    Pipe had a 3" split (freeze damage-not visible in pic) to the left of the slip fix.

    Rarely see 1.25" poly. Kissing Camels area has it on a few homes. I have my first on Thursday and looking at a revamp as well.

    I envy you. The frost line here is still two to six feet depending on what side of the valley your in. There's also over a foot of snow on the ground at the valley floor and over 15'-20'+ in the mountains. I have major cabin fever.

    Neither of us has really talked to him much about it. I'll ask him next time about the utility bods.

    I haven't heard either about Tony's Biz. I figured he'd ask Dana, but maybe he's staying in it on a part time basis?

    Yep, you guys have been nailed this year which is a good thing for the front range water supply!

    The biggest snowfall at my house in the Springs was 2 or 3". We may be due for a spring blizzard.

    Oh yeah, it's coming. Always does. I always mark on my calendar when we get spring snow storms. April 24th last year. Knocked out the power to my house for a day. Big, wet snow downed a tree limb which took out a power line next to my lot. Woke me up middle of the night. Also snow on May 23rd last year.
  9. Neither one of them has officially gotten my business....;)

    I will be selling all my stuff.....and giving them my mailing list and they can fight over it....I doubt Dana wants my rental houses..but you might want them eh Tom?

    I love what I'm doing...enjoying every minute of it....who would have thought. Out of 20 salesman I am in the top 3 each month since November...and making more money than I ever have in the winter....it is more steady and will get steadier as time goes on...as long as I keep selling cars in an honest way...

    Does this make it official? Am I a indoorsworkingwuss?

    I started back to the gym couple of weeks ago and the bar hurt my hands....maybe that makes it official.

    Dana....I am going through my crap today (wednesday)....do I really need to do that or will you just buy it unseen? I also have tool boxes for a smaller truck if you ever bought one...by the way, I have a 2wd nissan extra cab down at the dealership if interested....

    I still read these boards but don't post....I don't want to be the hasbeen that tries to tell everyone how to do it....;)

    Thanks for the great years here on Lawnsite.....cold wet hands to all...
