Me not my chickens. I originally thought is was the well pump that had died. The water stopped flowing yesterday morning. I checked the pump bladder & all breakers etc. There was a snowstorm going on, so all I was able to do was chip the ice & move 3 ft of snow before it was dark. Pulled the pump out this morning only to realize that it indeed ok. The prolonged cold snap we have had has frozen the water line where it comes out from the pump & then goes up & attaches to a 90 degree elbow joint to run the 100 yards uphill to the house. I can't take a torch to the line that is in the well cause it is plastic. I'm hoping that the rest of the line that runs underground is not frozen also. Any suggestions??? I'm glad the hot tub was full, so at least we can take water from that to flush the toilets, but I'm getting tired of being the bucket brigade around here.
