Being w/o water is definitely NO fun!
I've gone through the frozen pipes thing myself, back in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin. We also went w/o water here in Texas, after Hurricane Rita blew through, which was even worse b/c it was soooo hot (in the hundreds) and everyone was so hot & sticky & sweaty from not being able to take a shower b/c there was no power for almost a week. YUCK!!
I'm glad you're back in business, Katie!
