Oh My Goodness!
I got up this morning to find that we had no water. . . .uh oh. I told Mr. Giggles so he wouldn't be surprised when he crawled out of bed at 5:45 to get ready for work. Well, we had cold water but no hot water it was 53 degrees inside and 17 outside. A few minutes later the electricity went out so Mr. G crawled back into bed and we tried to decide what to do. After a little while the lights came back on so we could turn on the tv to find out that we would have rolling power outages all day long. Woo hoo. Mr. G called his boss to let him know that he would be late or not in at all because of the water problem which turned out to be that the line to our hotwater heater had frozen (our hotwater heater is outside) and so was the supply line for the toilet. We went to his parents house to shower and then ran errands, one of which included going to Harbor Freight to buy a heat gun to thaw those pesky pipes. It worked! Tonight there shall be more water running through the pipes!!
