Super freezing temperatures burst pipes

Be prepared — old man winter is working overtime.  If your under 40-years-old, you may not have felt the chill of the arctic blast expected to hit  2/3 of the United States this week.  And the water pipes on your home or building have not either.

Taking steps to prevent a nightmare — bursting water pipes — is necessary.  Drain those lines, heat your home at the pipe’s point of entry and follow the guidelines from the American Red Cross — the masters of disasters.

Bundle up and stay warm this week.  Atlanta is expected to be colder than Alaska.
