No Water Day Four, and Why Kalyn Won’t be Posting Recipes for a Few Days

What’s a food blogger to do when it’s day four without water, every dish in the house is dirty, no way to wash them, and there’s a big hole in the lawn where the water meter used to be? Take photos of course. Here’s part of what’s been going on around here the last four days.

Much, much, much thanks to my wonderful brothers Mark and Dave and my brother-in-law Kelly who spent the last two days at my house trying to figure out what was wrong (after two days of trying to thaw the pipe with an electrical charge didn’t work.) Also thanks to Rand who sent financial and moral support from California. I cannot adequately express how blessed I feel to have such a wonderful, supportive family who would pretty much do anything they could to help me..

Since my entire life has been completely disrupted by this little act of nature, I may not be posting any recipes for a few days. I’ll be back as soon as I can.

(Edit, Monday morning. I finally had water by Sunday evening and am getting things cleaned up. It’s a long story, but my main water line was frozen where it goes under my sidewalk and there were some rubber fittings where the line had been repaired which kept the electrical current from thawing the line. Thanks to Ulrike from Kuchenlatein who has agreed to switch weeks with me and host Weekend Herb Blogging this week while I get my life back in order! Send your entries to ostwestwind AT yahoo DOT de. If you would like a photo to be included, send her a photo either 100 X 75 px or 100 X 100 px when you send the link. These should be sent by 3:00 Sunday, Utah time.)

  3. Hooray! Water! You are so lucky to have such supportive family and friends.

  4. Oh, my, Kalyn. I am so sorry for you disrupted life! Believe me, I know what it’s like. We lose power every winter and since our water comes from a well in the creek at the bottom of a hill and has to be pumped up to holding tanks, when we lose power, we don’t have water. You have my complete sympathy!
