I thought by the end of this weekend ... I started a new profession... A plumber with butt crack included. The temps have been subzero with the snow here in Ta Town. I have lived in my house for over 18 years and this has never happened. As it was so smartly pointed out to me.. the temps are breaking new records here.
My Bubba and I spent all day yesterday putting my water well back together after it froze up and the pipes broke. I have to say that is not a job that I can do or would like... It's cold and its a dirty back breaking job. Nope not for me!!! I have to say my Bubba was a trooper .... he worked on my plumbing for almost 10 hours to get water for me because the house has been without it for 4 days... the 4 legged hay burners needed a drink.. not to mention the rest of the out door creatures....
I was trying to melt snow in buckets in the house.. I did learn something from that experience...
#1 It still takes a long time to melt snow even if your using a blow dryer.
#2 A 13 gallon trash can of melted snow yields about 3/4 gallon of liquid.
#3 It takes all day to get enough containers of water to flush the toilet!
Other than that ladies my weekend was uneventful :)
