Pipe Burst Update

I ran over to the neighbors last night to see the damage.  Imagine my shock when I found out the frozen pipe was actually running behind the electric baseboard heater.  Had the heat been on, even low, the plumber said the pipe would not have frozen and burst.  The repair was fairly straight forward, rip out a huge section of wall and then fix the pipes.  Plumber bill was $250 for the repair, excluding the work to repair the wall.
