(*’of water’, pronounced ‘Doh!’ )
When I started to get ready for the colder weather, I debated whether to get a water hose heat tape or not. I decided not since I didn’t find it that effective for really cold spells. Instead, I decided to live off my water tank and to keep my water hose empty so that I wouldn’t have to worry about having it available for fills. For some reason, I forgot all of this when we had our recent thaw and I’ve been without water since my hose froze again before I had a chance to disconnect it.
Since we went up above zero today, I got the hose thawed, then filled up the holding tank and the drinking jug. So long as I don’t go crazy with the showers and it doesn’t drop below minus five or so during the day, I should be good for water for a week.
I brought Midnight out while I was playing with the water. It wasn’t cold enough for his winter coat, so I had him wear his sweater. Ain’t he cute?Share on Facebook
