Dept. of w00t!!1!

Success!!

I'm dead tired, about to watch some anime with my Best Beloved, and enjoy a whisky, so I'll keep it short. 

We have a thawed pipe! We have hot water! Things are ever so much better than they were this time last night!

For $675, they'd better be, mutters the dour, money-watching part of me. But I'm just paying attention to the happy hot-water me right now. 

w00t!!1!

Life without hot water is definitely not good...

Indeed; and the fear that the freeze might have broken a pipe, thereby paving the way to thousands and thousands of dollars worth of repairs, was extremely bad. Getting the water back meant no broken pipe. That alone made me dance with glee.

Such good news!! Glad it all worked out, even though it was a tad expensive!

It was good news, even though it also showed us some under-the-sink water damage that will someday have to be repaired. The idiots who gut-rehabbed this place in 1999/2000 hired their idiot cousins to put in the plumbing, and it's a complete disaster area; at some point, something leaked, and a section of the floor has essentially dissolved.

Also, they didn't insulate under the sink, because of the horrible way they put in the plumbing. .

Idiots.

Did I mention they were idiots?

Still, we've discovered it, and are forewarned. Also, we discovered that our garburator is leaking, just enough to rust a section of the mechanicals. Agh. But discovering it is good, and we'll tackle it another day, when we're not exhausted.

Wow - what a lot of verbiage ....

*hugs*

Better to be forewarned and forearmed. Alas, it seems too many idiots try to short cut repairs - at the expensive of those who have to clean up the mess (sometimes) years later! UGH. But now you know and can make battle-plans, yes?

*HUGS*

Yeah ... and now I can do a bit of relaxing, and figuring out meal plans for the coming week. Which is my idea of relaxing. Heh.

*hugs back*

It's a relief, and now that I've put the kitchen back together, it's even more of a relief.

Thanks for the hugs, and have some for yourself!

I was so glad to read this on FB! So happy your pipe did not burst.

I'm definitely happy - I still have to worry about something I spotted on our under-sink garburator, but I'm taking my victories where I can, and this one is a big one.

Hooray! So glad the pipe thawed instead of bursting! Sorry about the other unpleasant discovery(ies?), but still - yay!

Enjoy your well-earned relaxing.

I'm happy to have escaped this situation. Not exactly cheaply, of course, but much less expensively than I might have!

Hope your AC is now fixed, and your screen door!
