Enough With the Water, Already!!! (Part 2)


January 8, 2015

We woke up this morning to 7 degree temps (wind chill was -2 degrees)!  And…(drumroll, please!) the downstairs pipes froze AGAIN!  Despite Harold’s reworking the pipe layout under the kitchen sink last year, and in spite of all the insulation that was packed around those same pipes, and despite the faucet that was left dripping all night, the $%#@ pipes froze again!

Greg just left for a doctor’s appointment 50 miles away.   Before leaving, he shut off the water to the entire house.  If there’s a silver lining in this, the mercury isn’t supposed to rise above 31 degrees today, and since the frozen section is outside of the house, it should still be rock-solid when he returns.  Then we have to figure out how to prevent another flood.

Just in case, maybe I should start pricing new laminate flooring?

Harold is on his way over.  Our attempts to warm the pipe with a heating pad did not work, so we have our checkbook in hand!

    I don’t know how you do it!! Hope the checkbook did not suffer too much! Am anxious for the next episode of “Living in the Mountains”. I think you should have a reality show. Hugs going out to all of you! Lesley
