If you're tuning in for the giveaway, that post is coming a little later. This is just a post about - what was that water coming out of the ceiling?
I worked in the day job 12 hours yesterday, big deadlines etc etc - got to the house and there was a bit of excitement. Of the not-so-good kind.
As I've said before, it's really really cold here. Like zero degrees. For Saint Louis, that's unusually cold. I know, I just lost the sympathy of everyone in a location where it is NOT unusual.
Apparently, a water pipe in the basement froze and broke, and water was cascading down. Fortunately, it didn't happen over the kiln, or the computer. (it can always be worse)
Unfortunately, the fellow who came (very quickly, thank you!) to fix it so we had water last night and this morning had to cut big holes in the finished basement walls to get to the problem.
If it was cold before, I may as well be outdoors now! Of course it will be fixed later today, and the fellows with the water suction equipment will get the water out of the carpet. It's indoor-outdoor carpet but it's not supposed to go SQUISH when you walk on it.
Anyway, thanks for listening, I'm going to bundle up like an arctic trapper so I can work on some designs. And occasionally I will go soak my hands in warm water to get the feeling back.
But this just goes to show that life is what happens while you were making other plans.
Stay tuned for the regularly scheduled giveaway announcement! And thanks in advance for keeping warm thoughts coming my way!
