It is Almost Like Art!

So what happens when the hot water tap
burst off the taps
on a very cold day in Canada.
There was water everywhere,
and there was so much steam from the hot water
I did not have access to the shut off valve
which was in the crawl space.
Note to self...need to be able to lift trap door!
Hubby saved the day as he rushed home from work,
in the meantime and there is no other way to put this.
I about froze my glass off.

I can be grateful it warmed up today.
All the ice crystals have melted,
I found new taps online
I wonder how fast the tap flew by my head.
No one was hurt during this fiasco.
Have a great weekend,

    I read about your plumbing issues on both of your blogs and I have to say that I was just uplifted by the way you could find some good in the whole episode and by your sense of humour... These icy photos are fantastic too! More goodness out of the whole mess:) I think you are doing wonders with that new camera of yours!

I think we have it now. it has happened twice now...I am threatening to call a real plumber, but he man of the jungle thinks he can do So far I am being patient. lol.
