More Frozen Pipes

Another lesson learned . . . shut off landscaping water when it's this cold.  At 5:00 a.m. Bill discovered water running down the street from our landscaping water box, even though it had been covered with a heavily-insulated fake rock.  He nearly froze his hands getting the valve shut off.  And the laundry room pipes remain frozen tight.  Our space heater doesn't seem to work from inside, and there is no thaw in sight in the near future.  Rats!

Anyway, our wonderful gardener/handyman came and fixed it all.  Not only had the plastic pipe broken, but the brass fitting had also cracked!  It's still only 20 degrees, so we won't be watering the plants soon!
