    Filleted Mobile Home

    I told you guys I see the darnedest things in my job. Well here is a new one! A mobile home that appears to have been filleted.

    Guess somebody sold some scrap aluminum...

    Here, there's been a rash of break-ins to vacant houses to steal the copper plumbing and wiring. Lousy economy, compounded by high scrap prices, I guess.

    Are you sure it's not the beginnings of a redneck sauna?

    I'm almost sure that's what took place here. Back in September I had some scrap copper and aluminum sitting around so I decided to make a run to the scrap yard. I had the old line set from my central air unit I replaced last winter and the A coil and condenser. I stripped it all down to just the coils. Also a little bit more scrap copper line and then an old storm door and some aluminum thresholds from a couple of doors I had replaced. I had to go right by the scrap yard so I figured that I would throw it in the truck and drop it off on the way by. Off the top of my head I figured that I'd be lucky to get maybe $12-$15 bucks for it but that was better than nothing. I got there and unloaded the stuff and the guy weighed it and said he'd be right back. He gave me $51 and change! I was shocked. Scrap prices are definitely at all time highs right now.
