lizaardvark: yakmans_dad: Our insulated pipes would freeze when outside temps dropped below 15F. We got this gizmo to thaw pipes: an electric cord that had around 6 ft of heating element embedded in it. You wound it around the pipe, plugged it in, and let it go. And then *walla* you waited and waited and waited. And then the ice melted.

We learned to set a drip when the temps would drop.

The word you wanted is "voila", which you could easily have looked up if only the internet had some kind of search function. Your browser would have flagged it for you if only they made browsers with spelling checkers. You could have used a word that you actually know how to spell, if only you weren't the kind of person who eagerly embarrasses himself in public.

I just like to walla in my ignorance.

My outside faucet froze last week because I forgot to turn the valve to it off. I needed to drain the water out of to make sure the pipes in the wall don't burst.

First I though a heat gun would thaw it. Then I thought blow torch would be quicker. Then I decided that I put a lot of work into the house and didn't want to burn it down, so I used a hair dryer. I realize now I'm a sucker and could have saved 10 minutes if I used the torch.

I'll know better for next time.

We used to get frozen pipes all the time, as our home had a well run from a small uninsulated shack next to our polebuilding (basically a big metal workshop).  So, one day, my dad goes out to do his usual gas torch magic trick.  He comes running in a few minutes later, saying he needed to take a shiat.  As he runs past, I glance out the window and note the smoke coming out from under the eaves of the pumphouse.

The pumphouse is now well-insulated, and the phrase "pumphouse run" is now ingrained firmly in our family's vocabulary.

The only thing more reliable than these stories every winter is deep fryer disaster stories every Thanksgiving.
