This weekend has been a full weekend for the King and I.
We are babysitting the neighbors house while they go south
to visit family and friends... So it is a "would you water my
plants while I am away". Which we are always happy to do.
But plans went array this weekend...
First off, we had the arctic wind of the north...come down from Alaska and freezing everything. So Friday I went over to put the faucets on to the dripping system.. TOO LATE.. the pipes already froze. The King tried to see if it was an easy fix with temps up in the house.. but not to be. So it was called the plumber. And the answer was not good.
Seems the door to the skirting had been left off.. and the wind whipped under the house and froze everything.... AND.. broke the pipes at least at two places.
So turn off the water at the street level... turn off the water heater...and put a space heater under the house early Sat. morning. Got it up to 30 even though it was 5 below by that afternoon. Heard air in the lines.
The plumber is to be back to day to fix the breaks and hope the two are the only ones.. and putting up insulation type door that the King made for them.. So hoping by sun set everything will be back like normal.
Also, they turn off their paper route.. and someone didn't give the message to the deliver guy, as there was papers all over the place.
So got that stopped.. now if you can get the water to go.. they will be in good shape.
