Although it’s doubtful that the weather will be below freezing for an extended period of time over the holidays, it is the time of year to remind all residents of what measures to take in case of an extended hard freeze.

The steps to prevent damage:

  • If you will be gone on vacation over the holidays, or are gone from your home for more than a few hours at a time, set your thermostat no lower than 55°
  • Open the doors to any cabinets with water pipes on an exterior wall so heat can circulate around them
  • In extreme freeze, slowly drip any faucets that are on an exterior wall if no heat is available

Although we try to salt walkways and steps as quickly as possible after freezing weather, there are times when it’s delayed due to inability to travel, or the lack of supply of salt. Please always use the highest amount of caution during these times
