First Frozen Pipe!

And hopefully the last!

My bathroom supply pipe froze this morning (I mean, it was 19 degrees, after all). Not a big deal. I just put a little space heater in the undercroft of Florence, and will turn it on from time to time. I also crawled under the kitchen sink and found where the white PEX feed line goes to the bathroom, and put an old-timey Edison bulb on a cord down there too. That’ll keep it warm enough so it won’t freeze. I’ll also heed the warning of my neighbor Teddy and leave a little trickle of water running all the time. As he says: flowing water won’t freeze.
