Day 339: oh the pressure of frozen pipes!

5 Dec

I woke up this morning to my regular routine.

Let dogs out.
Take thyroid pill.
All was normal…

…except when I turned on the faucet there was no water.

Water, water everywhere and nor a drop to drink.

Our pipes froze.
Winter is here.

No problem except we were supposed to be on the road to Seattle early this morning.

Plans changed.
Day diverted.

But there is always a gift, somewhere, in the middle of chaos.

For us, the gift came in the form of catching the frozen pipes before we left town. It would have been way worse to arrive home after being away for the entire weekend to what I can only imagine would be a full on mess of water.

So we are now on the road. Heading north. Way behind schedule. Looking for a stop with WIFI so I can publish this post.

My gift of the day was an attempt to give a homeless man something to eat at one of our stops. He refused. He wanted money instead.

I guess that’s one lesson in this gift-giving promise of mine.

Not everyone will accept the gifts you have to give.

But it won’t stop me from trying.

More tomorrow.
