Oh Boy – Did I Forget An Important Winter Task

Totally forgot to leave water dripping last night and now have some frozen pipes. As tonight is to be much much much colder- there may be a major problem when the temps go back above freezing 🙁 [it’s called burst pipes]

How I forgot is beyond me – I’m the one that lived in cold New England areas lots of my adult life and know to do this !

Not sure if they are frozen inside or near the river – but I suspect it’s both – and they won’t defrost until it warms up and then – pipe replacement time.

So – a word of advice if it’s cold near you – and you have an arctic air mass over you – leave water dripping in sinks or showers all the time.
