Long story short.
I came home to hear the water meter spinning.
Scherie said she wasn't running any water.
We have a family room that is a converted one car attached garage.
All our neighbors have done this.
Most, like us, have added another garage.
So I didn't see any water on my way past the washing machine.
I thought the toilet might be stuck in the utility room.
But first I walked into the family room.
I stepped through the door and stepped down in to five inches of freezing water covering the wood floor in there.
Slipped and fell right down.
There was ice floating in there!
While I was changing and drying, my son Caleb stopped by to visit.
He got a garden hose and an extension cord while I got out a pump.
Insurance wil cover all, AAA assured me.
They arranged for a water remediation firm, electronic repair firm and an asset eval team to contact us, which they have.
They are "swamped", because very many people around here are going through this.
A pipe in an outside wall that feeds the hose faucet (spigot) in the front of the house had frozen, burst, and when thawed, leaked into the family room.
Could be worse.
