turned on my outdoor shower last week. Saturday morning it was frozen. Hit the pipes with a blow dryer and it loosened right up. No leaks. No problems since but I know I am living on the edge!

Other than weekends I do not see a problem at the docks and I agree that during prime time you could extend the docks into the broads and they would still be full. After 20 years I use the crowds to...
