Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

WOW! When it rains, it pours....or trickles!! LOL

So waking up Sunday morning to 4 degree weather, not including the wind chill was fabulous....oh and then I went to get in the shower and a tiny little trickle came out. CRAP! So I checked the sink faucet.....and nothing. Yep, our pipes froze! Every single one of them in the house. What does that mean? No shower, no brusing your teeth with water, no washing dishes or flushing the toilets....NOTHING! We called the water company because we thought it was the main line that was frozen and he informed us it was frozen where the water pipe meets our water heater....SPEAK TO ME IN ENGLISH JUNIOR!! That means its our problem. We tracked down a space heater from my parents house and cranked up our heat inside.....we finally have running cold water but guess what? NO HOT WATER! The pilot lights be checked, and 18 hours into the defrosting process...still no hot water. Being a homeowner is so much fun!!!

When i was a kid, we lived on a farm and my dad used to put small bales of hay around the pipes under the house and leave a trickle running (more like a sloooooowww drip) at each faucet when he knew it was going to be super cold....yeah it sucks, but i bet this will NEVER happen to you again!!!

YIKES....that doesnt sound like a fun thing! It is freezing here today too, except it was our garage door that wouldnt go down after it was up because of the cold, but that is minor compared to your issue! I hope tomorrow you are able to have a warm shower!

That's awful. I remember when I was a kid in Indiana, and they said it was going to get really cold, we'd leave everything on at a slow trickle. Hope you get hot water again soon!
