As well as a burst pipe and frozen garage sink, we also had no electricity on Christmas morning. Although we were not home and so it did not effect us massively, it did mean that we returned to a freezing cold house due to the electric tripping and the boiler not being on for a few days when it was arctic temperatures outside. It took a few days for the house to warm up. However, although it was tricky at the time, I do feel very thankful that we are not in Northern Ireland where some people have been without water for weeks. Also I have a friend who had a burst water pipe in the house and it brought teh ceiling down. At least we had very little damage.
