Baby It’s Cold Outside…

And it will be even colder this weekend :(

I talked with a local plumber this morning and he is very concerned about frozen pipes.

It’s not just the low temperatures (and yes, they will be LOW).  The other factor is the wind.

During similar extreme cold snaps, our 2nd floor master bath shower pipes have frozen (the pipes are on an outside wall).  And this is in an occupied house.

So, we will turn up the thermostat (even though I’m a cheapskate about the gas bill!) and probably drip the shower head overnight.  It’s not worth a pipe break and water damage.

If your shore house is not completely winterized (defined by water shut off at the curb, with anti-freeze in the toilets and sinks), it’s worthwhile to take extra precautions this weekend.

Plus it’s a holiday weekend…so come visit the island!
