There is unusually cold weather coming in the next few days, so E bought more foam pipe wrap for the water pipes which feed the guest cabin. The kids are coming so we need to open up the water for them. With these upcoming crazy temperatures we want to make sure we have no unfortunate water situations to screw up the current awesome water situation. All of the storage tanks are full to the brim, with only one 1500 gallon tank open for use. No one wants to see any of that water needlessly lost, least of all you guys. You would never hear the end of it.
E has connected a hose from the hot water tap on our deck to the water tank under the house. We can leave the hot water dripping into the hose and it will run from the tap to the tank during the sub zero nights and the water won’t be wasted. The guest cabin is another deal entirely. We will have to accept the loss of the little bit of water needed to keep the tap dripping in the bathroom up there at night. There shouldn’t be a big loss and the kids can keep an eye out for problems. Better that than having a pipe crack.
In the guest cabin there is an 11,000 BTU propane heater, which has been on for two days. We went up to make the beds today and it is quite comfortable.
We were doing some meal prep and Christmas baking this afternoon, when a text arrived alerting us to Orca visitors heading our way. Two adults and a baby passing by is always a welcome sight and worth putting down my spatula. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they should hang about over Christmas to entertain us all.
So this brings us to my last post for a while. I want to again thank you for reading. Thank you all for taking the time out of your lives to read about our life and supporting this blog. I hope it gives you a pleasant diversion from the day to day trials and tribulations that these last months have been. E and I both wish you all a very merry Christmas and sincerely hope you can be with at least some of your loved ones this weekend. Stay safe. Hugs from Me and E
