Still Alive

I am too worried about my pipes freezing to focus on writing anything insightful or profound.  The high tomorrow will only be zero, and that's in the city.  I am out in the sticks.  Geez.  Anyway, it's so cold that letting the taps just drip won't suffice to resist a possible freeze.  I must maintain a steady stream.  But I have this extra problem (because God hates me):  my kitchen sink is backed up.  So, if I let the water even trickle out in a thin stream, I'll still have an overflow problem come morning.  Thus, I have to put a bucket under the tap and empty it every hour.  I shan't sleep tonight.

As I said, I am still alive.
