Water Torture!

The temperatures here have been in the minus degrees for days, so I have had to endure water torture 24 hours a day.

When temperatures are below freezing, we have to keep the water dripping to help keep the pipes from freezing. 

Drip. . .  Drip. . . Drip. . . Drip. . . Drip. . .

hour after hour after hour!

day after day after day!

Hearing the dripping water hitting the stainless steel sinks is absolute, bone-grinding, head piercing torture.  It’s inhumane!

Putting a sponge under the drips helped mute the sound a bit –

Thank goodness!!

But I could still hear the water running out of the faucet and thudding – ever so slightly but still constant – on the sponge.

Plus, every time I wanted to use the faucets, I would have to readjust the water – a real pain in the neck!

But – Hurray! – Temperatures in the daytime are now above freezing, so I can at least turn off the faucets during the day.

Of course, there are still the nights –

Drip. . . Drip. . . Drip. . . Drip. . . Drip. . .

    Fortunately we don’t have to do that, it would drive me up the wall.

    Take care.

    Hi Dawn….that must be dreadful.
    I am intrigued…you appear to have an electric point right next to your tap.
    Isn’t that dangerous?
    What do you use it for???

      It is dreadful! But I must carry on as the mature adult that I am. Yeah – right!

      The plate you see is the switch for the garbage disposal under the sink. It’s not an open electric plug.
