Since starting my new job, I haven't had a half-day in the past two months to run up to the cottage. Well, I finally got up to there last night to take care of the fall plumbing for winterizing. Good news: the cottage wasn't flooded; bad news: the waterlines are frozen and broken. More good news though: the pump and water tank were still thawed and I could drain those, and I think I saved the toilets and shower drain before they cracked. More bad news: the water heaters were frozen and I was unable to drain them...I've got a plan to save them though...I just need to find and coordinate a little bit of time and a little bit of help. All this means - we may be roughing it a little more at the cabin next year.
Other note: the lake has a thin sheet of ice on it. Yes, I tested it, and no, it does not hold my weight!
Gratitude ~ I am grateful for the challenges and fun that comes with being almost too busy.
