Notes from the cold, part 2

- The power is back on, no more rolling outages. The last one was Friday morning.
- No water at the house since Thursday presumably because the pipes are frozen. I fear the ice in the pipes melting because I think we are likely to have a pipe burst.
- The sun is out but I'm still not too eager to venture outside. Today's high is supposed to be 46 degrees.
- Update: The water is back on but the bad news is that the backyard sprinkler pipe broke. Our yard maintenance guy put a temporary cap on it, allowing for a hot shower and load of laundry before tonight, when another freeze might pop it off and we're back without water. Woo hoo for a shower, though, and more good news is that there don't appear to be any other leaks.
