We're not sure how to tackle this water pipe problem. We hope that warmer temperatures forecasted for later this week will defrost the pipes and then tBOY might go in and redo the insulation (with more heat tape). We decided that this can be a project for Christmas holidays. We are not too concerned about not having running water in the shower as we can either:
1. wash in the kitchen sink,
2. wash in the shower with a bucket of warm water (from sink) or
3. take a shower at tBrother's cabin (200m from our place).
So we went to ride bikes! But brrr... It was COLD!! My fingers and nose were frozen like the pipes :(! ttDOG protested against the ridiculous jacket we made her wear by refusing to leave the bus (but I think she thanked us for it once we got into the forest).
|The stream was half frozen|
|ttDOG's fav part about bike rides... treats :)!|
|A stop at a sunny spot to warm up and check out the view|
|The lake was partly frozen.|
tBOY thought it would be fun to put ttDOG's treat on the ice...
|ttDOG is super cautious and wasn't sure about the ice (despite the treat!)|
But after a little encouragement (and perhaps a push in the bum by tBOY)...
She got it!
I guess I'll go take my shower in the kitchen sink now :)!
