Today it was up to 68*F when I was out in the car around 1:30pm. So much better than staying below freezing Friday thru Monday morning.

Where did expectations of a white Christmas originate? Certainly not Bethlehem.
Probably from the Best Selling Song in History as per records sold...
" "White Christmas" is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. The song was written by Berlin for the 1942 musical film Holiday Inn. The composition won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 15th Academy Awards.

Since its release, "White Christmas" has been covered by many artists, the version sung by Bing Crosby being the world's best-selling single (in terms of sales of physical media) with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide.[2] When the figures for other versions of the song are added to Crosby's, sales of the song exceed 100 million.[3][4][5] " -Wikipedia

I'm getting conflicting information on putting heat tape on PEX. Some people do it but the heat tapes I've looked at (ie Frost King), don't list PEX as a material they are approved for. And also, some people put foam insulation over the heat tape but other people say not to do that.

Does anyone have info on this?

Yeah, I can’t wait until we are all forced to drive electric cars….not!
A Tesla caught in a lake effect snow storm on I-90 would flatline the battery for sure. Now consider if all the vehicles on I-90 were EV.

We had 4" of rain with gusts of 50 mph wind. Tomorrow I'll spend pulling leaves out of the pool, cutting some branches, and cleaning up the house.
