Winter snow storm — How to keep safe! Easy steps to take so your PIPES don’t freeze !

Here in Central PA we are expecting the biggest storm of this winter.

The amount of snow will vary from  area to area, however the temperatures will drop to as low as 4 degrees.

Our local news advises, if you drive, to leave  6 car length between cars, and  keep your car lights ON if your wipers are on, also to buy food for about 2-3 days because this is going to be the biggest storm of this winter, so far.

My concern, since I already decided to cancel my morning appointments, is FREEZING pipes.Why? I assume at least one person doesn’t know that if water freezes in the pipes, they expand (ice) when the temperatures raise again, there is a good possibility the pipes will BURST!

Here are a few tips on how to avoid this potential disaster, thanks to our local CBS 21  news station and Red Cross:.

1. Keep the water trickle (movement of water will prevent freezing))

2. Open your cabinets in kitchen  and bathroom.

3. Keep your temperature in your home at at least 67 degrees..

 4.   Keep the SAME temperature throughout day and night..

If your pipes are insulated, congratulate yourself. If not, do the above, hope it helps and in the spring visit Home Depo or Lowes and buy pipe insulation.

Don’t forget the movies, pop corn and hot chocolate or hot cider. and other beverages to keep you warm and happy:).

Good luck. Stay Warm! The good news, nothing is permanent. You might want to buy your air conditioner now!
