    Hey at least you can get to the parts you need to. The rest doesnt need to be exposed really. Dont think it would hurt it, would it? Well, just thought about snow so ok got ya. But with 65*temps on dec 22-23 and getting A/C calls instead of heat Im kinda slow.

    Well now that just made me laugh. Snow.

    I'm sure the 'authority' allowed it. We are not in the gas meter business. If it is OK, then so be it. It just struck me as..... odd.

    The meter may have been set before final grading. Adding fill and mulch over the years and I could see this happening, but the blacktop? Just seems kind of dumb.
    You can't learn a thing with your mouth open.
