Polar Vortex ll

Here it comes again!  Are you ready?
 I still have leaking water from the last polar onslaught.

 Get out to the store and squirrel away lots of food.

 I sure hope this doesn't happen to me.

Yes, the frozen toilet is the scariest bit.

Okay... all the pictures are awe-inspiring, but that last one... OUCH. We are dipping down to single digits on Weds. and Thursday nights so I'm getting my warm-water-bucket arm loosened up for duty already.

In our house in NJ, the first one - it had no insulation underneath. In the winter the cats' water bowl would freeze. It got nipper in there.
I agree with Guilaume, the frozen toilet is the scariest of them all! I sure hope You won't get any problems with Your pipes again!

Have a great day in the cold!
Christer.

We already have a temperature over 50 degrees here today! It's hard to believe that tomorrow's high will not even reach 40, and there is a chance of snow flurries all day! Hope you don't have any extra problems with this next storm.

The pictures are absolutely beautiful. But I am glad I am not there where it is so cold.
Brace yourselves. Winter is coming.

Weather like that is why I like AZ. I hope you stay safe and warm!

So far no snow here and I would be happy if it stayed that way.

You can pour rubbing alcohol in the toilet and tank to keep them from freezing. Also, the "Rehab Addict" lady on Facebook has recommended using pink antifreeze to keep toilet and bowl from freezing. Don't let Teddy near it though, it is Poison! Stay safe and warm!

Brrrr..... yep, it's getting super cold here. I'm sorry you still have a leak in the house. That stinks. :(
The ice in the toilet, now that's bad. Hope you all keep warm.

I could tolerate the cold if we didn't have to worry about pipes, heat and water. It sounds like it's going to be around a couple of weeks, oh my. Stay safe and I hope we all survive this round.

Scary to see frozen water in the toilet. I'm going to sit this Polar Vortex out here in a nice warm house.

Those are amazing pictures! Beautiful but looking very cold! Keep your great soup recipes coming!
Oh good Lord! Someone turn on the heater! Quick!! Um..what's a polar vortex?? Something cold...I know.

Yiiikes! I just heard about it in the news. I wonder if they'll close schools in Chicago again.

Our winter in southern England has been incredibly mild so far. I know this is a tease and will change soon. While I'd love some snow, I want nothing to do with that polar vortex monster.

Sending protection vibes to your pipes! Stay warm!

It's really cold down here in NC. We finally did get a little bit of snow yesterday though. :-)
