The aftermath

The good news is that the pipes unfroze yesterday. The bad news is that there were more bursts than we bargained for, four in all, so I spent much of the evening crawling around under the cabin with a torch and a sheet of A4, making lists and diagrams which will require some translation before I visit the hardware store tomorrow. It was surreal and a little spooky down there, though I must admit one particular fountain - directly beneath the kitchen, where the ground slopes more steeply and you have to decide in advance whether to crawl on your back or your stomach - was quite pretty, an underfloor water feature for the benefit of whatever normally crawls around there (I dread to think). If I get a chance I'll take a photo.
