Earlier today, I mentioned that a plumbing problem at the house had held me up from getting to work on time. Well, it didn't get any better during the day. Our house has polybutylene water pipes instead of copper, and they're unusual enough these days that some plumbers don't service them. We couldn't find one to come to the house today, and so we have to wait until at least tomorrow afternoon to get hot water at the house. Since this is Minnesota, and this is winter, that means the water flowing through the pipes comes in around 35 degrees or so -- and ain't no way I'm standing under that to take a shower.

So, the First Mate and I find ourselves at the Country Inn & Suites nearby our house. We're paying for a room basically to take a shower, which makes this the most expensive warm water I've ever bought. I have an Internet connection in the room (free, too), but I'm not sure how much work I'm going to get done between tonight and tomorrow morning. Posting may be light, depending.
