Ernst’s Jack Russell, Gem

herself [another of gem’s nicknames] is tightly curled up , blissfully ,, by my feet!  snowing like mad outside.  cold. and i haven’t taken the water tank out of truck yet, re been too sick. it rained a lot before it snowed, i expect it’ll be heavily frozen in, and i will not be able to get it out.  i wonder if we’ll get a warm spell again, before winter sets in

Nothing warmer than -5C here for the next 2 weeks – I think the ‘warmer’ days will have to wait until April????  Bad break about the water tank, tho’ Yikes!!  Is the truck in a garage or anything?

i dont have a garage. even if stays below zero, if sun comes out, i will park w ass of truck into sun, open tail gate, the sun might warm the metal enough, to loosen the ice, so that i can remove the tank

Hope that does the trick – or a blow torch!

(. . . not funny!!)

Good Luck!

the blow torch is in my water well!

and it would melt the plastic tank  (they are expensive)

Nothing wrong with your mind re:  the ‘blow torch’ being your well!!

I realize the plastic would melt and can only imagine the cost of a new tank  . . .that’s why I added “not funny” – ya’ see?

well, a person could put blow torch under box of truck, gently warm the metal just a bit, to loosen tank.

but, w my luck, i’d blow up the valley (all Encana’s frac’d methane everywhere)
