Frozen pipes

We are entering the deep freeze again and the possibility of frozen water pipes. This January during the deep freeze, a 1/2 copper pipe that runs hot water to my shower froze. I tried everything to thaw it, including a hair dryer.
Then a friend of mine told me about "Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable" and it worked great. All of these years I had never heard of it. It's simple, strap the cable on the pipe & plug it...

Then a friend of mine told me about "Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable" and it worked great. All of these years I had never heard of it. It's simple, strap the cable on the pipe & plug it in. In a couple of hours, all was well. I bought mine at Home Depot & its made by Frost King. I'm sure that there are several types available on the internet. Hopefully you won't get any frozen pipes but if you do, this works.

Catalytic Converter Thieves Return

I wrote about about these thieves back in April or May, now it seems that thry are back. Now, Fox 32 news aired a story that Jefferson Park District is being targeted by thieves stealing caralytic converter from parked cars overnight. For Fox 32 news to do this story, there must be a lot occuring.

When it comes to crime, everything is about numbers & statistics, so the catalytic converter thefts must of risen dramatically. It isn't just one or two guys doing this, Cook County has thousands of thieves. It seems that there are precious metals inside catalytic converters such as platinum that makes them valuable.
Best thing to do is keep the alarm on, even if your car is parked in your driveway. These thieves operate under the cover of darkness, they always hit at night. Installing outside lights with motion detectors would be a good idea.
If you want to go that extra mile and install security cameras, Costco is selling wireless camera system for about $600. Thats a good price. If you dont like it, take it back, Costco takes back all electronic returns for 90 days, with full refund, no restocking fees like Best Buy. Just save your receipt.

    Right, you'd think the cold would stop them. Also, as for the price, we have an older vehicle, maybe 2004, 2006? Not sure.

  • These guys don't care about the weather. You have something and they want to take it. They don't care if they get caught. And how often do they caught, once in every hundred thefts? So they get away with it 99% of the time. If they get caught, they know the legal system, they get a public defender, sometimes they just blow off court & disappear for years. Other times they plead it out for probation or time considered served. Then they are back in business.
