The Fighting Resumes

Yesterday evening, I suddenly found myself without water once again. It's presently -16 and we're looking at another long stretch of deep freeze. The forecast continues to change and while we're looking once again at a long period of sub-zero weather, they are no longer announcing nights at twenty below. Small blessings, I suppose.

I'm trying to figure out where the water is frozen. My compartment is well heated and my heat tape is working. All I can fathom is that the problem is once again in the pedestal, but that was insulated. So, perhaps the problem is underground...

At times like these, I start to dream of Las Vegas, but Las Vegas got more snow than we did this week, so I am starting to wonder if there are any warm havens left!

I was checking the weather in all of the "Sun Belt" locations where our friends are spending the winter. It is cold everywhere! Yuma, Casa Grande, Tucson, El Centro, Phoenix..... Everywhere.

It's just like the movie The Day After Tomorrow. I think we've just moved into a new ice age.
