    Fire station or We can't burn the house down!

    That it is. Also keeps the weather from getting through the intersection point (where the roof meets the wall).

    Morning all, Hot weekend. It was 98* on Saturday with heat index of 112*. Like stepping into a sauna when going outside. Yesterday was a little cooler, only 93* with heat index of 101*. Picked the really first of the tomatoes. Currently sitting a 8 pounds so far with more coming. I'd...

    Very nice. How wide in inches is your road? I'm trying to get a handle on what I need to allow for.

    Morning all, Another morning with rain and thunderstorms coming through. Just under the severe category and were under a watch until 10:00 am this morning. When I got home I had to re-stake the tomatoes as the storms the night before had them laying almost flat.Heavy cages collapsed, go figure...

    You and I are of the same opinion. I don't really pay attention to what's going on with any of the major league sports (Baseball, hockey, football, basketball, etc.). I find I really don't miss them.

    Tight curves and tight clearance

    If you look through all the dates, you can see the tower was repainted sometime after 2008 and actually had its door open in one street view. Way cool videos!!!!

    Module Construction

    Breeze from the woods would be cooler as they have their own micro-climate. In my case, my subdivision is like most built in the past 20 years with no TREES....any breeze is usually 15-20 MPH and accelerated by the way the buildings in the neighborhood are laid out. Since I have 10 acres of an...

    OK Caught up here and with the holiday work stuff. I did manage to get a brisket smoked on Friday for Saturday. Last brisket I did took 16 hours as I did it at 200*f so it took a while to get it to 200* I set it for 250* this time and it took about 6 hours. The advantage to an electric is that...
