My cabin in trouble?

Recommended Posts

FZ

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 got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
