BLACKFOOT â€” Waterâ€¦we use it every day. It is at our fingertips with the turn of a faucet. We wash our dishes, clothes and take showers in the beautiful substance we often take for granted until suddenly, it is gone. Water has the chemical ability to turn to a gas when it is hot and freeze solid when it is cold. Freezing water is great for ice cubes and snow but when it comes to frozen plumbing, we would rather it not.
