19 posts in this topic

Drove by the access on our way home about 45 minutes ago. Never saw so many emer vehicles in one place. Helicopter flying around, Airboats, you name it. Didn't stop, too congested as it was. KSTP Ch 5 had a truck there. Watch the news at 10 I guess. Hope all is weel.

They got a call that a truck went threw. The helicopter and rescue team are gone now so it must of been a hoax, or they gave up. I find it hard to believe a truck went threw. Even with the springs and the 2 days of warm weather, there was plenty of ice.

I wonder if channel 5 will be nocking on doors interveiwing someone who is a neighbor of a guy who knows someone on the lake. They are good at that. I bet it will be Brucato making it into a big story if it airs.

It was just on channel 5. A passer-by on the highway thought they saw taillights go down and headlights pointing up; indicating a vehicle going through. Lake was searched using air boat, atv and helicoptor but officials decided everything was okay.

There's more money we don't have down the drain. Good thing nobody was hurt though.

I agree that that would have been good practice though.

Ya at least they called it in. A few bucks searching and finding a false alarm is worth it. Thats the way they like to see it end. If someone had gone through then we would be dealing with a whole other story.

someone might be in some trouble on that one

Nope....was even said on the report that nobody is in trouble for reporting what they thought they saw.

    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation. 
    • Some times it's just nice getting out of town and when your with the right people a wet weekend can still be fun. This weekend should be better!
    • Cool story! 
    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that casement windows.are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
