I bundled up and walked out to the shop to make sure the light was still working and it was directed toward the pump. It was and appeared the pump was still running. I decided the pipes were frozen. Trudged back to the house. I turned up the heat, opened all the cabinet doors under the sinks. I turned every faucet to drip and waited.
It was less than an hour when the dripping sped up and I checked. The water was back. This is the first time in 12 years that our pipes have frozen. So happy it wasn't critical. The dogs, cats and guinea fowl are happy also.
Why didn't I call for help? Because who can ask people to come out in this weather and try to get up the hills to my home. Plus everyone has the flu so what's a little cardiac problem. LOL Learned that UPS won't be making deliveries today in the area so my coffee order won't come.
My problems are small compared to some and I hope other people are managing to stay warm.
God bless us every one:-)
