Thread: 12.2 F in DFW

    Default 12.2 F in DFW

    BRRR, I got up at 7 AM this morning and it was 12.2 F on my thermometer! BRRRR, that's the coldest it's been in DFW since I've been here just over 10 years.

    -30 Thursday morning and -32 yesterday morning but much better today. Makes the alternator squeal just a bit when you fire it up for the first time when it's that damn cold.

    Yeah, but this cold here causes problems. I think my foundation shifted the other night becuase of the soft soil and the cold temps. I heard some hollow thud sounds and I have more cracks today than I did last week.

    We do, but they still have settling issues with changes in the weather, the soil here is terrible for buildings.
    My neighbor just had Cable Lock done to his house to prevent setting issues, it cost $14,000 not including crack repairs.
    Summer ya gotta water them like the lawn, winter you really cant do mutch but grin and bear it.
