Ice Capades

Tried to call Ms. RFD on the phone lately ? If you have, you know the phone has been out of order for months. I finally went outside to test for a dial tone in the phone box on the side of the house and saw mountains of ice ! The water had not been turned off and the garden hose froze, split, and shot a fine stream of water on to the side of the house for many weeks of freezing weather, which resulted in the spectacular ice formations above.
The phone box was underneath all that ice, of course. Tried to break it all up with a hammer, but the ice was way too thick. Try calling me after the spring thaw - until then, send messages by carrier pigeon or pony express.
