The drainpipe going from the bathtub must be frozen in the trap area. These -20C night time temperatures did it no doubt. We tried everything but no luck getting it freed up. Apparently the temperatures are to rise to +6 C tonight so with any luck the ice might melt. I don't hold out much hope though.
After waiting a month the men finally arrived this morning to fix my oven. A friend tried to fix it in December after we bought a universal thermostat. It didn't work! Hence the call to the repair man, which if I'd had any sense I'd have done in the first place. First thing when they came through the door and saw the stove were words like, "Oh dear, oh dear," My, oh my, oh my" and "Now me darlin, who told you to buy this thermostat.", " Who put this on for you my love." Well, after explaining it all they went to work and in no time it was fixed. Apparently the thermostat that was sold to me, for about $100.00, wasn't for my stove and the guys said it's a wonder the house wasn't blown up and as the friend that tried to put it on the stove had to cut pieces off it to get it to fit, I couldn't bring it back to the store for a refund. So after all was said an done and they had put a proper thermostat on the bill was $230.00. Not much I could do but get it done...so baked macaroni and cheese for supper with a salad, lol.
My glorious Crows haven't been around for a while so I put out some dried cat food hoping to entice them. It worked! Some pictures of the beauties.
Lots of Juncos around now. I made up some of these onion bags filled with food.
