so sorry to hear of all of this, the weather is crazy this winter but I will pray that is gets better because no water is hard to deal with. Pray that your health is better as wellé

by gerryvb 18d ago

hope and pray warmer weather will come your way soon. In the meantime, try to stay warm and safe.

by robertahilde 18d ago

I remember when living in the Catskill regions (N.Y.), we used to buy a special electric tape to bind around water's pipes to prevent freezing.
Maybe it is available in Canada also.
Warmest hugs, Roberta

I hope all is going well Carolyn. Your water pipes not working must be an absolute nightmare - never experienced that here in Australia. I will certainly be praying for you all. Love Chris

Carolyn, it is hard for us to imagine such COLD weather here in Australia. Even in winter it does not get down to your extreme conditions, and especially where I am living. Glad to her John's eyes are now cleared up, you two have certainly had a lot to deal with over past months. Pray for an ease in your weather conditions and safe travels, must be scary driving all the distances you cover. Do hope that you soon get water flow to those frozen pipes. Take care/

Sorry to hear about your frozen pipes. Prayers for your travels over the next few days. Please drive carefully. Big HUGS

Thanks i need it all +++no pipes broke just frozen in the driveway 8 feet down++++

Carolyn in the UK we have a saying 'it never rains but it pours' You sound as if your spending a lot of time driving in poor conditions. Any hospital/medical appointment is stressful with out a long drive in your winter months. Thinking positive thoughts for al of you

by graceandham 19d ago

Been praying, but not about the water! Hope things thaw well and soon.

noah by noah 19d ago

Still no water++++

graceandham by graceandham 18d ago

I'm back to praying.

by sewtired 19d ago

Oh, that is bad news. Did you get a good report on yours and John's eyes? Shingles in the eyes is scary. Also praying that you don't have burst pipes when the lines finally thaw. We live in the south, but when a freeze is predicted, Hubby always leaves a faucet dripping as our water lines are exposed.

noah by noah 19d ago

No shingles it is all cleared up and she gave him new med's for the pain in his eyes:):) Me no +++more deterioration of the retina but i knew that as my site is not as good as it used to be +++He told me to start wearing my glasses My eyes are still excellent and i hate glasses but i use them here and to read small writing Hugs

If you use a mouse at computer, try placing it over some of the words we've written and rolling the middle "wheel". Did the letters enlarge? Works for mine.

by Midnight1 19d ago

Sending prayers your way.

Wow that is horrible. Do you ever leave a tap running. I have heard this can prevent the lines from freezing.

yes but we were only gone 10ti 12 hours but it was soooooo cold that day -42 to -55 and we never thought of it++

by lbrow 19d ago

You are in my prayers everyday. Wish you could stay somewhere it's warm. Come on down, it's only 22 Degrees F here this morning. Carolyn I hope things will be better soon I hate for you to be without running water.

Thanks i boiled water to do dishes and tried turning on the tape to rinse lol

by crafter2243 Moderator 19d ago

Praying for you. You probably know that already but I thought I mention it anyway. They always say to let the line drip during those extreme cold spells. It supposed to not let it freeze this way. I hope that is true.
