Welcome to the joys of old home ownership 😐
It’s no mystery that it has been a rough winter across the country. Now, we’re dealing with below-zero cold weather here in Wisco.
Super cold temps = frozen pipes. Boo 🙁
Not all of the pipes are frozen, just the cold water in our upstairs bathroom. Everything downstairs is good, and the hot water in the upstairs sink is fine.
Unfortunately, a blowtorch to the pipe in our ultra-cold basement and again right under the sink did nothing. Last resort: cut a hole in the wall of our newly finished bathroom to access the pipe there.
None of this stopped us from going out for fish. But we were in for a surprise there too…
Jason and I were becoming regulars at the Moose Creek Bar & Grille. We made the 30 minute drive over there tonight only to find a completely dark building with a sign on the door. They closed and moved over to their sister restaurant, the Sugar Creek Inn.
Sugar Creek is a much smaller place, and we were crammed in like sardines. The fish wasn’t as good, so I’m not sure what we’ll do next week. We’re back on the hunt for a regular fish fry.
Not all was sad today, though. Here’s what I got to look at during my workout…
