What to muse about today?

So, yay.  More snow today.  Just enough to be annoying.  Although it is enough to make this January the snowiest January on record.  Ever.  Well, since they’ve started keeping records here anyway.  Yay.

So far we’ve had the most snow fall in a 24 hour period, (I had blogged that it tied, but it actually surpassed the record), and now the snowiest January on record.

On top of more snow, that I can’t shovel – yay!  (Although Stu said it was nice and fluffy the first time he went out, and heavier the second), the leak in the kitchen ceiling (that seems dry now), the possible ice dams on the roof (that we can’t get to), we now don’t have hot water in the kitchen.  There is hot water in the half bath and the rest of the house, but not the kitchen sink.  Very convenient for not washing dishes.  It is more fun to let them sit.  It’s also fun to torture the piglet – she does not enjoy having her face washed with cold cold water.

At first I was concerned that we had a frozen pipe.  But after worrying myself a bit too much, realized that it would make more sense for the cold water pipe, not hot, to be the one frozen.  Stu looked around on-line, and thinks now that it’s a clogged valve or something.  I think he’s going to try to fix it later today.  Yay!

Oh!  It looks like the snow may have stopped.  Another good thing.

    Egads. You are having a tough time! Might be time for a plumber and a snowblower!

      Yeah. And we’re waiting on an electrician as well. Something blew in the garage that also took out the two bathrooms GFI outlets. This happened before, when the house was hit by lightening. So, I’ve been drying my hair in the hallway.

      We’ll be looking for a snow blower later the season, hoping that we can find a good end-of-year/season deal.

      And the kitchen sink is better now. It ended up being gunk in something, that Stu was able to knock out. Yay!

    Thank goodness it was something simple! We got our snowblower in March one year…go bigger than you think. (yes, I’m referring to the snowblower capabilities LOL) We got one that could handle close to 2 ft You don’t usually need near that size, but makes life easier. The joys of home ownership! My kids are home today due to the recent storm..snow started hours before predicted.
