But dammit anyway. I’ve been congratulating myself that the water hasn’t even (apparently) tried to freeze during our extended cold wave. Then the sink drain stopped working.
The end of the grey-water pipe is completely frozen, which means the pipe is completely full of water, which means…the damned thing might not empty till spring. Fortunately there’s a plan B: The trap is easily removed so the sink can drain into a bucket, and there’s plenty of room on the shelf below with a little rearranging. But still. Dammit.
