Water

So, yesterday all around proved to be an interesting day. I had the disaster in the morning, and then when I came inside after playing with animals/feeding/cleaning stalls, I was going to start doing dishes. Well...I turned the faucet on and no water. Ok, I thought, must be the lines are frozen, because this had happened a few days ago as well. I opened the cabinet underneath the faucet to help the line thaw out and went about doing other things.

About an hour later, I flushed the toilet and it didn't fill back up. Weird, I thought. I turned the faucet in the bathroom on...and nothing. No water. I tried every faucet in the house. No water. I called B and he said not to worry, probably that the line was frozen somewhere (I checked everywhere, couldn't figure out where it would have been frozen from). He comes home and can't figure it out either. We call the neighbor, and it turns out that our whole town is without water and has been for most of the day. Glad someone called and informed us of that.

We had to haul water up from the barn (which we get off our own well) to water the animals up by the house, which was quite a chore, especially with how cold it is, and have been unable to shower, etc. Although the water has come back on, it has no pressure, so it just kind of tinkles out. They have no idea what is wrong or what is causing it. Or how long it is going to take to fix it.

I was supposed to go to the chiropractor's this morning...but...not sure that is going to happen...I need a shower!!! I don't want to go to the chiropractor all smelly!

So sorry to hear this. There is always something with a house. Once we fixed the water heater I was just waiting for something else to happen.

Hope you get water and pressure soon!

No water...yikes! Hauling water in the frigid weather doesn't sound like much fun...

Glad to hear it's back on, and hope it's working appropriately soon!

I can understand not wanting to go to the chiropractor. They touch you and if you feel icky, well, I wouldn't want someone to touch or smell me!

I'm so sorry this happened. Can't believe it happened to the whole town and nobody is raising a fuss to figure out what happened. Then again, if you can't control it, raising a fuss won't help either.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day!
