Default 2016 in Indiana

I have 2/3 of my taps in now. Of course, the "weather liars" said we would have warm weather on Thrusday (yesterday) and I was expecting to flush my lines with the that run. The high was 31.5 and cloudy so I'm sure nothing ran .

I have the inspector coming (first time) on Tuesday so there's lots to finish before she comes. Being this far south, she had to look up the regs for how to do this .

SW corner -- where the Wabash & Ohio rivers meet to make the corner. I'm about 30 miles east of that just east of Evansville.

I'm a little under 10 miles east of I-69 which looks like its relatively close to you there in Martinsville.
