There's A Storm A Comin'. PROTECT YOUR PIPES!

Last month many of us suffered frozen (or worse, busted) pipes. So this time, we may all want to try even harder to avoid that problem. Some good tips to help are:

  • Full timers can open their cupboards under their sinks so heat gets in
  • Full timers can let their hot water facets drip at night
