The extreme cold has finally frozen my pipes, at least that is what i assume...till they defrost, life cannot resume...e
Everything is frozen,
Below zero is it outside,
I cannot even use the john,
I wish it were a fake con…
The job doesn’t me believe,
I can’t take a shower to my stink relieve,
Gotta wait till the sun comes up,
Maybe then the water will fill my cup…
Its happened but once before,
In January of two thousand & five,
We got through it, did survive,
Ah for the good old days of yore…

|We really take a simple thing like water for granted until we don't have any...then all too fast we find out. Hope your thaw comes soon and there are no permananent damage.

|Not good but it could have been worst, this could have happened last week when you were so sick and in need of that John. I pray things will get better REAL soon like TODAY would be great. It is minus 24 out there today, I don't know what the windchill is. Take care Ed.
Newfie Hugs, Rose

|Man o man, Ed, I'm sorry. Trouble seems to follow you ... I just said a prayer and hope things get better for you. :( If I could, would send you some of our overly warm winter to you (44 degrees. Above). :( Stay safe, 'hear? Can Rene help?
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|I hope it gets running again for you, Ed. That can be miserable. It happens to me here, too, and I keep many gallon-jugs of water as an emergency backup. May the sun shine for you :-)

|Wait 'til it gets down to 30 Below, Bro! I had to pry open my backdoor yesterday to let the pooches out. And you can't beat a good old fashioned Outhouse in this weather - no flushin required!|
