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.
