Oh Boy – Did I Forget An Important Winter Task


December 15, 2008 in 

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.
