#!*@% Pipes! (guess what?)
Hi all, yep - the hot water is frozen. Just another joy of an old house with dirt cellar & crawlspace. Am I the first this year? Lol. Perhaps just the only one foolish enough to not have adequately insulated hot water lines. (For the record DH did some & it's been enough since, but doesn't usually get - & stay - this darn cold!).
So, I've got a (tiny) space heater down there aimed at pipes that come down from water heater... Been almost 2 hours & nothing yet. Not sure what to try next. Those pipes are in the crawl-space portion, it won't be easy for me to get to them. I guess I'm saying I'm open to suggestions! (I'm going to end up under there with a hair dryer, aren't I?).
I wish this was as fun as my 4 year old seems to think it looks!
