Bitter New England Weather

Monday, January 24, 2011

The water pipes froze up last night. I'm fortunate to have a neighbor who has had to deal with this sort of stuff before, and had a portable heater. The rest was done with a hairdryer, and I've been instructed to leave the water dripping tonight so that they won't freeze again. The good news is that the pipes didn't burst.

Buying this house has made me humble. I hate asking for help, but since I've never owned a home before, and have very few handyman skills, that's exactly what I've had to do. I feel a little guilty about how much my neighbors have helped me, but I know that it's a two-way street, and that I'll probably be able to help them in some way to repay their kindness.

    I'm sorry that your pipes froze, but it is great that they didn't burst!
    I'm sure there will be something you can do for your kind neighbors in the future.
