No pipes burst.
The hens did not freeze to death.
Whatever was wrong with the dishwasher is healed.
I awoke HOT!
The tiny, prepolarvortex drip/leak from the washing machine is much worse. It now run/trickles, through the laundry room floor on the ground floor and into the basement ceiling and onto floor.
Lamps and candles for heat are retired. I used a total of 16 tea light candles and four matches.
It is 50 degrees now.
I will leave at 5:30 for a church dinner.
Then, I will go to Walmart.
The car has not been moved since Sunday! It will start.
Now, I can cook!
My all-night vigils with the pipes and candles and lamps paid off!
Hens are in their roost, and all's right with the world.
Nope, they came to get me to feed them one last time!
Did you work hard to keep things from freezing, including extra work during the freeze?
Was anything actually damaged? Did you lose any utilities? Have any tree damage, wind damage, ice damage to trees? Have a vehicle slide off the road? Anyone fall and break a limb? Get cold indoors?
