Power was out for almost 2hr last night. Lit a fire and checked water meter. Water powered sump pump used 30 gallons and let me just go to bed.

what took power out in your area?

regards the willow tree, do you have a branch or two I can have? I read that stab a twig or branch into ground will grow roots and make for another tree. They love water and will suck ground dry, which I need, by my mailbox.

Plenty of live cuts available any time. And yes they will root with no effort. Some drops will start growing roots in a puddle.

No clue on what had power out. Looked like it was just me.

burned a bunch of propane with the floor heat turned up yesterday and have a general idea of the layout in the slab. It's not super easy to see them, there's only a 5-10F at most difference.

There were no warm spots near the axle rack at all, so looks like I lucked out. I'm surprised at how far apart they seem to be. I wonder if some of the lines could be plugged? Was hard to see the return manifold temps with the hot of the feed manifold tight behind it right there.

camera is slow to update and low res but seems to do its job. For the price, would be nice if it were nicer but that seems to be what is. I saved a bunch of shots, will upload sometime.

Tubing could be spaced as much as 12-18" apart depending on diameter. Each loop layout also could be more of a spiral than ladder(?).

Loops with that spacing and then blanks 4-6' or even 10'.

only better test might be to close one loop at a time so full boiler output goes to each one in turn?

This. Also, get your driveway chalk out and mark 'em.

Loaded the rack Saturday. Worked out pretty well with one exception: I can’t reach the top shelf with the forklift. Oops



1.45” rain yesterday brought the pond up 8”. Overtopped banks again. I need to make my outflow wider apparently.
