The Shivers

Clipart image of icicles.

Inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 5 November 2021, solid.

Back when winter was doing it’s worst,
Pipes were frozen, I felt I was cursed,
Then along came the thaw,
And it hurt even more,
When I found that the bloody things burst!

      1. Oh yeah it is fun. Each state has different depths you have to bury your pipes because each state had different
        low temps and freezing level is different.

          1. Sure it is but if you don’t want them busting on you, do it or let a small trickle run allnight to stop freezing up.
