B is for....................

B is for Burrrr.................

It was so cold that this is what we were greeted with this morning

It was 27 degrees when I got up, and apparently we had a pipe burst :-( We do not usually have this kind of problem in Central Florida.

Hubby and BIL had to turn the water off at the well as the valves would not shut off in the house!


What a way to start the day.

Be sure to sign up for my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway here.

Guess I won't be doing much quilting today. Stay warm :-)

Oh so sorry about that. Be careful on that ice. I still pay for my 'fall' on ice on a daily basis.

I kinda fell your pain. Yesterday our temp was about 13 degrees when I got up here in Nashville. Then, I noticed that my feet were getting cold. The heat was not coming on either. So, I had to call the repairman to replace the computer in our 18 month old heating system. Took up most of my day. Yuck!

Bummer. Could be worse though -- there was a man on the news the other day who was on vacation when his pipe burst. His whole house and front yard was glazed over with ice. The pictures were crazy (kind of pretty though in a horrible feel aweful for the guy way). Or you could wake up in Indiana when it was 0. Just 0. We had no temperature. :) Here comes winter!
Stay warm! Cozy up. Drink some hot cocoa!

Sounds like a hot cocoa and snuggle in a quilt with a good book day! Sorry your pipe burst, hope its an easy fix.

Joanne said...

I hope everything gets sorted out quickly!♥

Oh gosh! Sorry to hear about this! And I also want to thank you very much for the package you sent me! I am so touched to receive the book and fabrics. Really really made my day and I even posted about it!! Those birdies are darling! Hope the repairs are quick!

Pat said...

Oh, no...sorry to hear that. I hope you can get it repaired quickly and for a reasonable cost. *sigh*

Sorry about this!! That is horrid to wake up too for sure! We have been dripping every night and day with our teen temps too.
UGH!
Winter came early to us here too!
Warm hugs,
Lola

Oh no - that's not good! If it gets that cold again, leave your faucets running with just a little trickle - that might help keep them from freezing up. This is no fun - I hope it warms up for you soon!

Becky said...

Hope your pipe problems are all taken care of! I think Sandie's idea of hot chocolate, warm quilt and a good book is a super suggestion. Take care!

Oh Joceyln, I'm sorry about your pipe problems. And for being so darn cold. Not fun. Watch out for black ice.

Oh how disappointing, I'm sorry about the pipes. We had one cold night here and the past week we've had warmer than usual weather, in the 80's and I'm loving it. Just like spring. I'll send some your way, stay warm.

Barb said...

OH wow....sorry about that and not getting any quilting done.... I am sure it is a shock.....

Trust me, I am freeeeeezzzzzzzzing...

Crispy said...

ACK been there done that when we lived in Seattle. I hope it was an above pipe and not one that is buried!!
