well ....... I wussed out
but , with good reason - I don't want to die !
actually, in case you don't know, there's an arctic blast heading south from the north pole, aiming directly at my house - temps so cold, my boys will be donning mittens for the next few days - thought it was time to blow out sprinkler lines since pvc pipe and frozen water are extremely incompatible !
so I had a very good and reasonably safe alternative to meeting my maker today- but then again, there's always the dreaded, TOMORROW
now where's that can of Raid ?
