Do they still have that old bar named "Tips"? Back in the early '80's it was a popular spot.

Lou, it looks like the water temp was too low, air temp was too low, and wave height was too low. Solitude was high!

Kyle I think that place went with the last storm that blew thru,, It was quit Don,, we drove down the beach for about ten miles and didn't see another person.. Ron I thought it was a bait stand,, but it may have been a outhouse for fish,, I didn't walk around to the front I just used the back wall.:D. Lou

It was so cold here the outhouse cheek-wiggle was the rule of the day to keep from being stuck to the board.

My grandson just told me that our downstairs bathroom is frozen up (lavatory and commode). The tub still runs, but it has no pipes on the outside north wall like the lav and commode. I put some vents into the wall so warm air could go in, but I need to finish the job by cutting holes and installing grills up high so warm air can move up inside the wall with convection current. Luckily, the pipes are PEX, so there is little danger of freezing and bursting. I don't want a repeat performance of my flooded basement from a few years ago. The only thing I really worry about is the PEX fittings (unions and 90 degree Ls) that could be pushed apart by ice in the pipes. We really don't build well for cold weather here.

What's your plumbing situation now, Jim? Hopefully, it thawed with no damage.
