Winter in the Country

It is cold here. I am not exaggerating. Right now it is 13 degrees--the high today is supposed to be in the 20s. We've done all of the precautionary things to keep our water from freezing: heater in the well house and heat tape on the pipe from the well to the pressure tank, and guess what??
No water today--hopefully the heat tape was bad and all we have to do is get the pipe thawed out and new heat tape. (I say all we have to do; mom and Robby will probably be the ones out there in the freezing weather doing it)
So, say a prayer for our water...I'll update later.

2:00 update--water is dripping from my faucet!!! We are having a heat wave, it is up to 19 degrees.
