Behold – Maeve’s backyard geyser!

Maeve's Geyser 2014

“Hoist by one’s own Petard” isn’t quite the sentiment…..but close enough.

    Maeve, what happened to cause that? During the cold snap, I had a problem in my house, the hot water at the kitchen sink stopped. I was worried about pipes frezzing and bursting. Kept running hot water to the bathroom hoping that convectiion would unblock the line to the kitchen. I licked out and, yesterday morning, hot flowed at the kitchen. We had outside temps here in the minius teens.
    I’m glad your disaster happened outside.

      Well, Fuzzie, you see we did actually have some rather cold temps (below freezing at night) and that piece of piping was not insulated and I forgot to turn it to drip, soooooooo the water froze, cracked the pipe and POOF – thar she blows! The tap is still screwed on to the hose. It was a total swamp. Serves me right for getting all OOC over the school delay 🙂

        Maeve, you can’t be the only one that this happened to in the Sun Belt. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

        Fuzzy – Did you not notice my little Ranty McRant post about schools being delayed due to cold weather? How I got all uppity about it?

        Just desserts and all that…..
