“When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.” Benjamin Franklin

In other words, when the pipes are frozen for two days and water suddenly works again it means a pipe burst and exploded somewhere in the wall into landlord’s kitchen and basement and furnace (eek, no heat!) and once again, just like that without water. (At least I have heat… yikes!)

No shower for me in the morning. Don’t expect me to look pretty.

MONDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE:

No water until at least Thursday (fingers crossed.) Contractors need to remove kitchen cabinets, ceiling etc in the landlord’s flat downstairs to fix the pipe.

Ugh. Not a good time to NOT have a vehicle on the road. I feel defeated. And completely convinced the landlord is going to hate me and not renew my lease in May.

I’d say good times, but I’d be completely lying. :(
