For those that might need an image manipulation program, try IRFANview.
I like it for its simplicity, but usefulness.
I'll post a link for download, http://www.irfanview.com/
I use it to create a small enough image to upload to this website.

Irfanview is great for picture manipulation, but if you just need to quickly and easily resize a bunch of pictures, regardless of how many, try Image Resizer. I've never found a program that is so easy to use when it comes to just wanting to resize a picture.

I'll second the MS image resizer...resize 50 pics in 10 seconds.

Hey, Kevin.

Is that a new home inspection company name?

Good to see you.

Kevin,

I will need to check for positive, but in Georgia, I believe the Gas Code requires a minimum clearance from ground contact of 6".
Your pictures looks like and older installation that is installed in an area that gathers runoff, siltation buildup, or minimum maitenance of vegatation growth.
Local Gas supplier will probably have to extend meter bar and reinstall meter at a higher elevation. Locally, this is usually a free service to the consumer, unless this is a reoccurring problem.
