    So, since I live about 430 miles from my mom and dad, I've carried the tradition on to my own family. These days, we get together on Christmas Eve, play the movie, pop up some popcorn, and my mom still makes homemade grape juice........
    That is so cool ROB.......nice have thos fondest memories Jim

He thinks it might be because Clint was parking on top of where the water line is buried and forcing the frost down so he thinks it might be froze in the ground...

    Which means we have to wait for it to thaw... short of digging up the line... Tomorrow Clint gets off work early. They are going to make sure the heat tape is wrapped around the pipe and plugged in, and I'm hoping that if they get the actual pipe hot enough the warmth with travel into the ground and get the water moving.

    Never had that happen when I lived there, but then mom and I only had one vehicle.
    Pipes frozen underground are a ROYAL BEAR to get thawed. If the pipe is metal (AKA galvanized), I've used an arc welder to thaw it. Attach one lead to where the pipe comes up at the wellhouse, the other lead where it comes up under the house. Apply a lot of current, which will cause the pipe to heat up. Maybe it'll thaw, maybe it won't.

    If it's PVC, I don't know of any way to thaw it short of digging it up or waiting for nature......

    Yeah I told them to get a motel so at least Clint can have a hot shower tonight. If nothing else, they have water in the pump house... they can haul water into the trailer... just... would be a royal pain. But by golly that would be living like true pioneers!!!

    I don't know how much time the plumber spent out there today, but he said since he couldn't find anything wrong or didn't fix anything he didn't charge them anything.
    That was nice.

    Those pipes were put down when I was about 10-11 years old I think. I remember standing in the trench when they were putting them in. That was well before PVC so I know they are metal. Now they just need to find someone with an arc welder....

    My late wife and I were married in 1979. I lived in a 16' camp trailer out on an alfalfa farm, and she moved in with me. We had power, but had to haul our water in. We lived there for about a year.

    Oh, the memories.......

    Lol.

    We often said that if we could survive living like that for our first year together, we could survive anything.

    True, actually.....

    Indeed! Well about 4 years ago they started by having to live in a tent in January with 2 cats and a hamster... moved up to a one room cabin for a month... now this. But, they are still hanging in there, although I know my daughter has been ready to throw in the towel pretty much constantly lately... if they can just make it to spring...
