Unhook It

With our first real cold weather just days away, just wanted to remind folks to unhook those water hoses from the outside spigots. Likely, your home has frost proof spigots, meaning they are designed not to freeze but that only works if the water hose is not connected to the spigot. Leaving the hose hooked up keeps water in the line which will freeze and rupture the water line.

If you find that your outside spigots are not frost proof, you still need to unhook the hose and you might want to pick up some faucet covers to protect them from freezing.

Bundle up, it's going to get cold.
