At least compared to the last couple of days that is. We had one pipe at the house freeze up a bit on sunday. It was the hotwater line to the kitchen sink. It thawed quickly but then refroze in the afternoon, despite the cupboard doors being left open, so we set it on a trickle and it made it through the night. This seems to be our only serious problem spot though, and only when temps are in the negative teens.

The same cannot be said for a waterline at work. Yup, same one that froze up last week, that we reported to FO. It thawed, but apparently no insulating was done so it froze again, and busted. It has leaked into the offices below us so FO was already working on it when I got in yesterday morning. Water is shutoff in this area as they still have to find where it busted. Then there will be a lot of sheetrock work..... It is in our largest conference room. Fortunately nothing is schedule in there until the first week of January but I double booked those meetings into the other conference room just in case.

Got the last of the holiday errands done last night and topped off the tank while I was at it, not knowing for sure what today's forecast would end up bringing. So far not as bad as predicted, but I'm not counting on a trouble free drive home. Half-day at work tomorrow, then a 4-day weekend courtsey of the Governor. Thanks Ma'am :)!
