Put That In Your Pipe and...Thaw it?

Is that how the old saying goes?
Well, guess what. Frozen Pipe. Again.
I got up this morning to find no water running in the kitchen sink...and spent the next 4 hours with my head in the cabinet trying to heat it up with a hair dryer.
Did we not tell the contractors there wasn't enough insulation in the wall?
For those of you not familiar with our contractors...this happened last year resulting in ruined floors and sheetrock.
So they're back. It took them an hour and a half to come to the conclusion that: Dah Dah Da..... the pipe is frozen.
Conclusion? Two new holes in my bedroom ceiling....
And a hair dryer stuck up the hole to thaw it out.
Now they're stuffing as much insulation as they can get up there...but is anyone out there convinced this is the last time this will happen?

  1. Erg. I hope you got a better hair dryer - the one I gave you is pretty wimpy...
    Can't believe the contractors are back.
