  •  Great! The neighbor I helped out today... (10+ / 0-)

    She had tied her under-sink cabinet doors shut to keep the cats out - I tried to explain keeping the doors open for warmth and letting her cats sit inside was far preferable to 500 gallons of water sloshing around inside the house in really cold weather, but not sure she gets it yet.

    OTOH, no frozen pipes here at the hovel either - ever. I've broken pipes, and fittings, and had minor flooding, but never had one freeze, yay!

      Yay -- on the concrete floor in the 'back room'.

      Boo -- behind the washer.

      On, IIRC, Super Bowl weekend, Sunday afternoon. Sigh.

      On the plus side, we had zero lines to stand in getting parts.
