Anyone else have problems with their pipes due to this cold snap? This morning I started a load of laundry and when it got to the rinse cycle, the water didn't go down the drain pipe, the water squirted out and went everywhere. All over my laundry room floor, pantry, kitchen and water leaked into the basement. Luckily, I was able to get the water turned off real quick. We think the drain pipe is frozen, so we've got a heater on in the laundry room.
I've spend a good chunk of this morning cleaning up water - not how I wanted to spend my day off.
A co-worker of my husband had his pipes bust last night - I think it got to -6 overnight here but it never occurred to me that maybe I shouldn't be doing laundry. Our laundry room is on an outside wall. Now I know to be more cautious.
Cold weather sucks.
