I was in the middle of doing my first load of laundry when the water stopped again. At first I thought there was something wrong with the washing machine because it just sat there, making a funny noise. Fortunately the water ran out just before it would have normally switched off, so I was able to trick the machine into continuing with the rinse cycle. I have a bad habit of waiting until I'm out of clean clothes before doing the laundry. If I hadn't done the whites first, or if the water had run out earlier, I'd be going commando tomorrow.
My roommate bought an extension cord and a incandescent shop light, which we lowered into the well. We then sealed the manhole and I covered the manhole and top of the well with a sheet of R.5 insulating foam. That should heat up the pipes and stuff quite nicely.
I sure wish this well had one of those old-fashioned hand pumps, then we could at least have water for flushing the toilets and doing dishes.
