    i left my d6 9u known as THE HOOD at the start of reindeer lake after we finished plowing open a road across the ice. the town had a water main break and the cat came in handy at midnight to fill in the hole. the vee-plow sure could plow the wet sand back in the hole.

    i would have not thought i would be plowing sand with a vee-plow, LOL.

    only 2 more months and i'll be plowing snow, LOL.

    the water line was installed in 2005 and it is about 8 feet down in pure sand. lots and lots of sand with a natural spring running through where the water line broke. oh we had fun on that project but we stayed at the lodge which made it even better, LOL. all pipes are insulated and then rewrapped with the sealant after the repair job was done.

    Why would they need to insulate the water main if it is submerged in a spring?
    Engineers:dizzy: It's only tax money.
