problem solved

Good news from the home front, the ice issue has been resolved! Friday afternoon a neighbor, friend and original builder of the home came over with a plumber to fix the pipe. After chipping the ice away with an ax, they found the root of the problem, the summer hose hook up had been left on and at some point came loose enough to allow water flow again. This caused it the big freeze up. Thankfully the first couple inches of pipe were frozen but not cracked. In about a total of 40 minutes they replaced the inner pipe, the handle on the faucet and stuck it all back in the wall...amazing what plumbers can do! So all is well and there should be no flooding at this point!
