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 :-)
