This is the new place, good to the end of the year.
I had something like that on a set of Goodyear tires, went something like "It's a good year, when a Goodyear tire saves you". I had 3 with good treads, blow out on me, one after the other over a couple of months. So, I figured I'd replace that 3rd one and the other one opposite it before the 4th deserted me. (The 3rd one looked like someone had destroyed it with a light saber)So good that something good is good to the end of the good year.
My truck has Goodyear tires, I think they're Wrangler type. Goodyear trailer tires have a pretty bad reputation for coming apart without warning. They've developed a new type, in hope of being more reliable.I had something like that on a set of Goodyear tires, went something like "It's a good year, when a Goodyear tire saves you".

I did the digging out and set up yesterday in between postings.WILLIE - That dammed tree doesn't need any help!! If you look at that photo from yesterday, my neighbor to the right there has one too. I see that his overhangs his fence the same as mine - which is outta sight more to the right of the photo.
Beautiful morning here ... time to dig out the Christmas Decor boxes and set up the Christmas Tree ... (is that a religious statement?)
The bagging makes sense, as plastic lasts longer than iron. Interesting.Jim: Just a quick comment on pipe failures before brunch is served.
One other major failure of underground ductile iron piping is the corrosion of the fastener bolts and nuts, Electrolysis caused the nuts and bolts to disintegrate and eventually fall apart. One method is to "Bag", in plastic, the pipe connections prior to the pipe being buried. Pipe and fasteners in cray soils have the greatest problems.
The water mains we deal with were installed in the 1950's. We replacement them with PVC in 1980's.
The ductile iron pipes were buried seven feet below grade to avoid problems with frost. 10 inch mains and 6 inch laterals. This system served the complex's domestic water and fire system.
Bad enough we have to watch those TV commercials, but most of them are the ones they ran the lastGood morning to all. Started off at +2 and have warmed (?) up to 18. If it get near 30 I may go out and plow the driveway. If not, it the snow will still be there tomorrow.
December is her along with all of the TV adds trying to entice Christmas shoppers to buy what ever they are hawking without mentioning the work Christmas, with one exception, Hobby Lobby.
I sound like a grinch.
