The irrigation systems are being winterized this week and next

That basically means that the contractor is turning off the water and blowing all the residual water out of the lines with a large air compressor. So, when it freeze this winter there won't be any water in the pipes to expand and break them.

The low point in the Asian Collection is, very reasonably, the flood plain of the Anacostia River. Carole, Marcus, and I went down there this morning to locate the 6 long lost Quick-connect couplers, open one, and blow the water out of the low point of the system. We did find them all with the help of a Schonstedt Magnetic Locator. We flagged them and photographed them with referents. Its a good feeling, finding things that have been lost!
