Way too cold

You know that it is way too cold outside, when you wake up and your water pipes are frozen solid. And when I say this, I mean that there is no water coming out of your faucets. This is not a good way to start the day off. It is -2 degrees F outside right now, but with the wind chill it is -14 degree F outside. Wow, is that ever cold!!

This is our first winter in this house, as we just moved in this summer, and let me tell you I am not impressed at all! Someone put the outside vent right next to the main water pipe... Arghh!! But whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? At least the heat still works! That way we can have warmth and whatever doesn't require water... Oh, what a day...

Maybe I'll just read and stitch today, just to keep my mind off of the fact that I can't do much else until it warms up some. Oh, the frustration I am feeling...

On the positive note though, the wind isn't blowing as much and it is a new day, filled with new challenges... And it's one more day I get to enjoy with my family and friends.

Sending you all warm thoughts during these cold days... :)


UPDATED: WE HAVE WATER!!! My loving spouse climbed below the house and heated the pipes up!!! It felt good to be able to get a drink of water from the sink, as opposed to melting ice cubes... :)

I won't tell you about the winter we were without water until the ground thawed enough to dig up the offending pipe ...

Good luck!
