and if you have an electric blanket or heating pad, wrap it around the pipe near where it may be frozen, if it's accessible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 2/20/15 9:09am Parq:

Must be something going around; we are without water as well. I was just barely able to finish the shower before it died altogether. Since I am in an apartment house, it's my role to sit and wait while other people deal with it. That suits the part of me that's lazy just fine; the part that likes knowing what's going on, not so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 2/20/15 9:10am Doug Schulkind:

I can't find anything actually frozen in the house (thought there are plenty of pipes behind walls). The fact that all faucets throughout the house aren't getting water suggest — I would guess — that it is a main water source and not just one internal pipe.
Avatar Fri. 2/20/15 9:13am glenn:

well, feed pipes shouldn't be traveling through exterior walls, for this very reason, although i don't know what the pittsburgh building code says. it's more likely that cold air is coming through a basement window or uninsulated joist cavity and freezing the pipe in that location.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 2/20/15 9:15am Doug Schulkind:

The main feed is underground coming in through a wall in the basement.

Joist Cavity was a great band. Before they sold out.

@Doug: We had the frozen (and then bursting) pipes Jan. 2014. Yesterday one of our cold taps stopped running, but eventually thawed out. Constant monitoring, letting faucets drip and keeping open cabinet doors so warm air reaches the pipes has (so far) avoided a repeat of last year.

We are now up to 2°F -17°C and rising. It might go above the melting point this weekend week end which is not a good thing when it drops back below afterwards. It means more stuff melting slightly, then refreezing into larger hard icebergs.

When I flush the john, then your shower goes on
Baby, now watcha gonna do?

If Drano's a joke and your plunger is broke
Baby, call the mensch with a monkey wrench
Baby, he'll be there for you

Shower's backing up, water won't go down?
Ba ba ba baby, don't forget my plumber
Ba ba ba baby, sink's been stopped up all summer
Ba ba ba baby, better call the plumber, he'll know what to do

Pipes been blowing up, pipes been breaking down
And the carpet's soaked right through
Ba, ba, ba, kitchen's flooded too
Ba, ba, ba, girl, you know it's true

B b betcha this guy makes more than my lawyer
If he works for one day, costs you half a year's pay
Baby, he can be here by two

So if you've got cash, he'll be there in a flash
Makin' service calls in his overalls
Baby, he'll do his best for you

Sewer's backing up, got you feelin' down?
Ba ba ba baby, don't forget my plumber
Ba ba ba baby, leaky pipes are a bummer
Ba ba ba baby, time to call the plumber, maybe call a few

Got a problem with plumbing? Gotta blame it on something?
Blame it on the drain, it was cloggin', cloggin'
Blame it on the faucet that drips all night
If hairballs, grease and goo won't let the water through
Blame it on the drain, yeah, yeah

When I flush the john, now when I flush the john
It turns the shower on
Ba ba ba baby, better call my plumber
He'll know what to do

Call now, we're in the yellow pages

Sitting through 40 minutes or more of a single tune is not unusual if you're listening to Bryce (who is nyce). At one point he played the entire Blue Notes for Monghezi in one go. That's two hours and forty minutes, folks. This was when Doug was still at the mothership in NJ and I believe it was Doug's cd as well. I will be forever thankful to Bryce for just going ahead and doing it.
