    2 hours before I have to get up......some noise woke me up. Went to the bathroom, turned on the facet ....[​IMG] nothing. My house is essentially a double wide on a foundation with a basement and long enclosed porch on the back. Well first of all where there had once been a water heater in the back of the house door on the outside there is now water pipes for the kitchen and bathroom + my son broke a window on the porch + its proably -5 right now outside = my bathroom sink pipe is froze. ive got a heater on it but geeze....I could have used that 2 hours of sleep, at least the kids are still sleeping.

    I'm sure that is aggravating. I hope your pipes thaw out for you soon. [​IMG]

    wow and your in virginia. I put a space heater in the "closet" and it took about an hour to thaw. Funny is on the news last night was a plumber telling people to thaw them slowly, leave the cabinet doors open and let the water run a trickle. I was lucky it was only my bathroom sink. Good luck

    Quote:I know! These temps. are not very normal for here anyways.

    The plumber is headed out here (not my call, my husband's) and I really think he's going to find that the well head is frozen. It just might be that we will have to wait it out for the next day or so, until temps. start to rise and pray that there won't be expensive damage to have to fix.

    Glad you got your sink unthawed. [​IMG]
