Bringing New Meaning to the Word "Ghetto"

It has been cold here. We're hoping the -30 degree nights end so we don't have to wake up to this in the morning:

The propane heater in the kitchen is only slightly more civilized than a burning barrel of trash.

Yes, that is ice in the toilet tank (above)

... and ice where the dishes were "drying" overnight. (Above)

Yesterday evening it was ice in the bath tub and the toilet. We thawed out the bathroom with the propane heater, then thought we needed to snake the bath tub drain. Which is right about the time we realized that the drain was frozen. And so we've been wet-vacuuming the water out of the tub after we shower and dumping it in the toilet... the Projects have heat, right?

  1. You guys have more guts than me. I don't think you could pay me enough to sleep in a house that is -30 degrees at night! My teeth are chattering just thinking about it :)


  2. what the hell is that supposed to mean?
    why dont you get angry at the energy company that is charging you so much that you cant afford to heat your place!!???
    this is what is wrong with Americans, they always look for the weakest poorest group to fault/blame/ get angry at and ignore the fat cats that are f++king them day and night!!!
