yes, ball valve swings toward WC, and of course is along side of the WC for easy access due to the 12" side rough.
I think on the talon, you hammer with enough force to slightly dent the heater, this assures proper setting of the talon.
Clearing a sewer in 10 degree weather this morning. My K60 and all my tools froze to the sewage that spilled out on the ground Even the cable pins froze in the retracted position.
Does the extreme cold make you crazy? I wanted to punch the customer in the nose just because he wouldn't stop talking. After going inside and warming up for a few minutes I started to like him again
What are the early signs of frostbite. I should know this Fingers were cold and wet. Then they got numb. Next came the tingling. After that, the pain. Felt like my fingertips were on fire all day. Still sore 12 hours later.
You were probably within 40 minutes of frostbite. When they start to get warm, like on fire like you mention, you're in trouble.
Remember that guy from apple, or some major electronics company who took his family into the mountains on vacation?
His car broke down, left his family to go get help, was a genious of technology but forgot his phone, gps tracker? ??
When they found him, he was stripped of most of his clothes. That's the last phase of hypothermia, feeling extremely hot.
Somebody in the medical profession can attest to this. Hell, Vince would know before anyone. I don't know how people do that for living, working in the cold day in and day out.
frost bite on the face feels exactly that. like something just nipped you or like a sharp pin prick.
as for the fingers, i use pain as a monitor. the first sign of pain, warm them up.
up here, when our hands start to get cold, we clap.
if our feet start to get cold, we stomp.
this gets the warm blood to those areas.
the body has a built in survival mechanism when it starts to cool down. it starts to restrict the blood going to one's extremities. this is why people will experience cold hands and feet when exposed to cold tempuratures for extended periods, even when dressed properly.
here is a good example of what can potentally happen if one isn't careful.
warning!! if you gross out easily, don't look!!
First call today,
Barber shop, all the lines are froze in the opposite side basement. Hours are going to be involved getting that running again. $$$
Second call is a plastic water line *whoddya thunk that?* underground service leaking from house to street. I passed that one on to my buddy who does all my outside digs...he's a master plumber as well.
All price shoppers today will get the phone hung up in their ear, no excuses whatsoever.
