In the big freeze recently. We only had rolling blackouts but had all the plumbing in the well house freeze, some pipes in the bathroom wall and one to a faucet on the deck. Oh, what fun.

Only having to replace the pipes, the only plumbing that froze in the house was in a outer bathroom wall.
Not really any leakage in the house as the supply lines in the well house were frozen solid so no flow.
Several feet of split pipe in the well house, the water in the well tank was frozen, didn't look like it hurt it though.
Just a major pain no water, and working in the cool weather to replace the plumbing.

Nope, not unless it is a lot different than what they have been using in trailer houses for years.
Main problem was the well house is too small to really work in, you really have to kneel in the door and work.
I am going to make it bigger this summer. At least so you can in it and move around.
Just capped the pipe under the deck I will have to pull up some of the deck boards to get to it better to fix it.
It just ran a faucet for hoses on the front of the house so not a huge problem, using the faucet on the side of the house for now.
The rolling blackouts were a lot of fun. Hour of power half hour off. Couldn't watch a whole movie but an hour TV show it it started at the right time worked ( better than off for days though).

They might get the glass that way drilled then tempered. A lot of the 75s have tempered bottoms.
to check for temper you use a polarized light source (laptop, phone maybe) on one side. You use a polarized piece of glass or sunglasses on the other side. You rotate the glass and if it gets dim not polarized if it doesn’t it is. The stress in the surface of the tempered glass deflects the light unpolarizing it.
