The water pipe is deep in the ground to prevent freezing and the lift handle at the top pulls up a shaft that allows the water to bypass a seal and lets if flow out the spout. I'll take a better shot of one and post it soon. This pic is at a bad angle. The lift handle is nearest you. The spout is on the far side. This one is wrapped in foam tubing to inhibit freezing. It's my neighbor's. He's a trucker. When he's on the road I use it and other items to show him how high the snow is piling up so he'll know if he will have to tunnel in to his home when he returns. I have photos of this very stand pipe slowly disappearing in our recent record snows.
We just finished a 4 to 5 inch snow storm on Monday. Now our temps are dropping to below zero this morning. It's MINUS eleven degrees in Coeur d Alene, ID right now My pipes are frozen. I have to go outside to get water for my coffee from the standpipe.

When the great ship Titanic made her maiden voyage across the North Atlantic and its blinded leader struck the iceberg, it would have been absurd to announce: "All hands on deck to man a bucket brigade; this ship is too big to fail!" To require men, women and children to try to bail out the Titanic until its final plunge, while its captain and officers took refuge in the few lifeboats is not unlike what taxpayers are being forced to do in this financial meltdown. Just as then, the correct response would be not "too big to fail," but instead, "Too Big to Bail." - Charles Schisler, Buenos Aires Herald, March 7, 2009 http://www.caseyresearch.com:80/displayDrp.php?e=true

Just how many crimes are there? If everything is a crime, we are all criminals. Do you have any idea how many laws there are that make things you do a crime? Just who is it that determines what is a crime? What is the payoff for them? http://www.pewcenteronthestates.org/news_room_detail.aspx?id=35912

Does anybody in the federal government know or could know “who, what, where and when” of the massive, complex, vertical, horizontal, global collapse of Wall Street and its planetary tentacles in over 100 countries abroad? Step forward if you exist! Uncle Sam needs you! http://www.commondreams.org/view/2009/03/07
