No water

Today I woke up to one of winter's best gifts-frozen pipes. The pipes inside are okay, but we suspect it's the pipe that comes out of the ground into the house that's frozen. Right now we're hard at work trying to thaw it out. If I can't succeed in thawing it myself, I'll have to call someone else. What a bummer. No water to brush teeth, shower, or flush the toilet. Fun times, let me tell ya.

While outside playing around with the pipes, we discovered that the plug the heat tape was plugged into was shorting. We plugged it in with a different cord and within 20 minutes or so water came shooting through the pipes. PRAISE THE LORD! What a relief we didn't have to call in the pro's.
