My Sister lives waaay up north, from me.
Her water pump is leaking.
To fix it, they will have to chip through 9 inches of ice (enough to support the weight of a large truck), rummage around the lake bed for the line, follow it to the ‘stuff’ at the end, unseat the ‘stuff’ from the rocks that hold it in place, do the repair, reseat the end with rocks, relay the line and lastly fill up the hole in the ice with the chips they dug out. Yeah!
She wasn’t too sympathetic about my rolling blackouts.
