Attention MOL plumbers

I'm wintering in San Antonio, TX, where demand for plumbers is overwhelming. If you want to spend a month or so in a tropical paradise (high of 72 today) with all the work you can handle, load up your vans and head on down. There are plenty of comfortable, reasonably priced Airbnb's and I can put the word out on the neighborhood message boards.

The full magnitude of the damage left behind by the cold snap is still emerging, but the state already knows it needs more plumbers in a hurry. Gov. Greg Abbott’s office has said that the state will grant provisional licenses to out-of-state plumbers and will waive fees and certain other requirements for plumbers with lapsed licenses who want to renew them.

I thought this a lovely accolade to NJ plumbers  snake :

It says something that the article was published for UK and international readers, and I’m reading it in Australia. 


Don't know why kids are all being told they need to go to college and take out massive loans to earn a good living.   Contractors, plumbers, HVAC installers, and electricians (and other skilled tradespeople) are killing it these days (and not just in Texas).....

 some people just don't have the physical skills to do that type of work....you do have to be mechanically inclined to start with.

 I've seen that article here in Texas. They seem lovely. I'm surprised we're not seeing more out-of-state plumbers here. I guess they've all got solid businesses in their home states and don't need to travel. 

After "normal" disasters (hurricanes), construction workers travel here from all over the country, but those are mostly framers, drywall installers, etc. It's unusual to have such a vast disaster area affecting primarily plumbing. 

We had our plumbing repaired on Wednesday after six days with no water. Best shower ever.
