How to protect your home from Freezing Pipes in Georgia

Are you thinking what we are thinking? We live in south and it will be how cold tonight? The weather agencies are predicting record breaking cold tonight. Many are saying that we will see wind chill factors below zero.

There are a few things that Southerners typically do not have to worry too much about unlike our neighbors to the North. One of them is freezing pipes! Did you know that you should drain your exterior hoses and spigots? Many of us have no idea that this should be done before dark tonight. Here are several websites that give you a quick overview of what should be done including leaving certain spigots slowly running. Hopefully this will help with your mad dash to get everything done as the temperature plummets this evening.

We hope everyone stays safe and warm this evening.
