Are you sure they pop or just shrink up enough to come off the rim???

At those temps there would be some other stuff shrinking up till almost non existent

Morn'n y'all...some good and bad news..good news is, escrow opens today. Renting for the last 3yrs just plain blows. Bad news,..daughter, while being with her dumb mom these last 2wks, gave me the call that she's staying with her..:-(. What can you do, right?. She's 14 and knows everything...
For a good laugh, while im using ladders and hanging over roofs pulling lights down, these yahoo's are using this on a SINGLE STORY..lol

Seeing arm erected, the idiot had snorkeled the bucket in between the roofs by the front door..unfreaknbelievable

Both glad and sorry to hear your mixed news, Timmy.

The Altec truck is just funny! How do you spell "o-v-e-r-k-i-l-l"?

As a guy who doesn't like ladders I think you guys are being too hard on the guy.

I understand what you're saying Mark. If I had access to an Altec bucket truck for that job, it's the approach this old, overweight ladder-sissy would take, too. That doesn't mean that it's still not overkill, though. I'm just speaking more from jealousy than criticism!

At my house, I won't even try to use my 32-foot extension ladder any more. On one end of my house, that 32-footer wouldn't even reach the eaves, and my roof pitch is high enough to where I won't even get on it any more. Any eave/roof work at my place is done by licensed and insured "paid help", and they can figure out how to get it done.

Hahahahahaha.....this made me laugh because I know the feeling all too well.

Timmy, sorry to hear the news my friend. That can't be easy. We'll have to get a beer when I get home. A couple more weeks! You're moving to Murrieta?

Yeah baby! And you should hear my knees scream when my fat old body goes up an extension ladder.

Over kill for some, way of life for others. When I was young I wouldn't even think twice about ladders. Up I went. Center Struts also. Not today, this old body just can't do it anymore. Balance just isn't there. On your Daughter, God bless you. We've had some of that in our close family. They seem to come back later in life. Live on and just don't forget about her.Send her cards and such. She mitt not get them, but if she does she'll remember. God bless,
Chet

Guys, i understand the significant where a bucket would be the best course of action. Pete's roof explanation is case in point. Heck, ive turned homes down because of that reason, and my guys are freak'n mountain goats. But, look closely at that pic. You can see the polyurethane lighted icicle figures hanging within arms reach of touching of bottom tip of the lighted illumination..(my best Y2 description i can mustar up..:-) )..i feel a 4ft ladder or even a stepladder would've been suffice..lol. It was worth stopping and smh..haha
Murrita BySly..ya buddy. Inspection yesterday and loans moving forward. Even got lender to cover closing with only a 1/8 percent raise to be a 4.85%..awesome!
Chet, DIG the card and letter thing. Lot more meaningful than a text..etc. Phone calls from time to time too but like the card thing. In my message to her was in closing, ..doirs' always open pumpkin, if you want to come home...give her, her 1st TRUE fulltime summer of 120* + and, she'll be back..lol

lol, what?

I managed to get the WeBoost cellular booster antenna and the WiFi Ranger WiFi booster antenna mounted on the top of the camper and cables routed safely into the interior. Need to order more PV wire though as we decided to go with a parallel system instead of a series system.

60 degrees and sunny allowed for a good amount of work to get done.

Nice Sous. That's a great temp to do a wide variety of things. Meanwhile, scraping frost and ice off stuff, and only 6 hrs of daylight kills my winter projects progress.

I need to install a WeBoost at home. It's been sitting here, but when I muster up the energy, it snows. Mines going on the house. Maybe tomorrow...

Happy Saturday y'all! 60 here, unbelievable that we just had negative temps a week ago.

We have a device here at home called a Microcell (AT&T device). Other carriers have similar options. No mast, antenna, cable to run ETC. Works off of the phone line but you need wireless internet.

I told my wife that if the WeBoost works as well as people say it does, I will buy the Wilson antennas and bring the booster/controller into the house when we are at home. I can mount the antenna in the attic just below the roof/shingles and will get much better signal that way. We sit in a gully with trees all around the house. It truly is a "southern holler" where the house sits. Not good for cell signal, but a crap ton of fun other times.

We have one of those from Verizon, it is dog ****... It works, but not very well unless you are within 15 ft of it or so. Without it though, we would have no cell signal at all.
