welcome to the frozen north

It's ridiculously cold in Minnesota right now. So cold that 6 above sounds like a major heat wave. After my Grandfather's funeral (a balmy -1 at the cemetery) we came home to frozen pipes...again. This happens pretty much every year since the genius who built our townhouse decided that the cold water pipes for our kitchen should run through our tuck-under garage. So, this is what the cabinet under our sink looks like right now:

That's right kids, we're using a heat gun to warm the copper pipes so that the ice will melt and allow the cold water to flow. The price of living where we see all four seasons.
