Just when we were getting used to spring, winter is back with a vengeance in some parts of the country. Northern Virginia, where I live, is expecting its first real snowfall this afternoon.
So, if you followed our recent advice and watered your spring-fevered plants, don’t forget to turn off your outdoor spigots and avoid frozen pipes and other cold-weather threats when the temperature falls below freezing.
If, God forbid, a pipe does burst:
- Shut off water supply.
- Turn off electricity to wet areas.
- Call a plumber.
Is winter back in your area? Do you miss our mini-spring?
