And so…

The water is kind of working right now.  The pipe that burst has been taken out of the equation – we don’t have water going to the washer right now – so its been turned back on.  We are still in the process of looking for someplace new cause its only a matter of time before something else happens here.  I hope whatever calamity is yet to occur can wait until we are safely moved out.  I half expect the whole house to collapse.

So…spent the night out at the missus’ father’s…I don’t think I can do that too much longer.  The house is newly remodeled…within the last week or two actually, but, ugh.  A tad to messy for me. Hell, I’m afraid to go to the bathroom.  As to why we are there, well, obviously, there’s no water, but, we are also finally abandoning ship.  This house has been one blasted mishap after another.  So. we are staying out at her dad’s since while we try to track down someplace new.  Looks like its back to an apartment…

So, last night was probably the warmest night we have had here in weeks.  The temp was up near 30 when I when to bed, about 20 when we woke up this morning.  A pipe exploded.  One of our breakresistant, supposedly can swell to some ridiculously large size to compensate for water freezing inside of it pipe blew up…on the warmest night we’ve had in weeks.  We only figured this out when we went outside and noticed that the yard was unusually wet, and devoid of the majority of the snow that had collected in it.  The city called a few minutes later to let us know they’d shut off our water becuause it was running into the street…

We’ll probably have to pay for all that water too….
