For centuries, the English have had a love affair with all types of hunting. Early one morning, a fellow was blasting away at a clump of brush on a grouse hunt.

The main gas line had a sag in it where water accumulated. Yes, it froze the first winter and shut off the gas.
The water was mostly leftover condensation from the construction process. After a few freezeups the first year it settled down. Apparently gas is usually dry enough.

But it's not likely to happen. Look at the odds. What percentage of the value of your house do you pay to the insurance company? Now on average they make a profit, so the chances of actually needing a full payout must be virtually nothing.
