frozen wasteland

Oh the joys of winter.
I returned home to find all the bathrooms in the house soaked in toilet water and frozen like an arctic igloo restroom.
 My homey little motel was holding a room temperature of 41 when I entered the scene. How could this be? The heater had been completely turned off. My innocent roomie in her haste somehow did not realize that pipes and such things freeze without warmth. I can't be too harsh on her. She just did not know. Thusly, I am waiting for a plumber/ land lord to arrive and diagnose the situation. I so badly need to pee.


  1. I didn't even know that was possible. What kind of frozen tundra are you living in?

  2. The kind that takes its heater 5 hours to reach livable temperatures.

  3. Ouch! I am sorry to hear that, I arrived home list night to find my drain lines to the kitchen frozen solid, thankfully not the bathroom. The house was still warm, just no kitchen until above zero weather....or decent snow cover.
