My cabin in trouble?

2 posts in this topic

I opened my cabin two weeks ago and did not leave the heat on. With this cold weather, should I drive 2 hrs there to turn the heat on? Or its already too late?

It was 12 degrees here the other morning in Glenwood and 24 degrees out right now (4:45 p.m.). Suppose to get down to 13 degrees the next 2 nights according to the weather channel with highs in the upper 20's and maybe reaching 30. If you left your water on and not the heat, I'd be making a quick trip to the cabin. The cost of time and gas is pretty minimal compared to tearing out all the plumbing and frozen water pipes. I assume that's what you're referring to in your post. We did get 5-6 inches of snow Monday night and Tuesday a.m. so there's some insulation on the ground and I think the first foot or better of frost is out. Your interior plumbing is probably okay. It's been below freezing here the past 3 days and with it suppose to get down to the low teens the next couple nights I think I'd be making a trip to your cabin. Better safe than sorry.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
