Okay. Thawed the main frozen pipe after breakfast, no breaks. Drove down to Fort Collins and met my son in law (he used to work on garage doors professionally) at my mother in laws, and we got her door back up and running (thanks a TON Buddy!). Drove back up to the lodge and power thawed the input AND output to the dishwasher. The breakfast dishes are running as I type.
A day FULL of chores I wasn't expecting, but the folks close to me are healthy and happy, SO...
HIPPO GNU EARS TWO EWES!
(Only slightly sorry)
