Southeast Snow Watch 2010!

For those of you who live in the Atlanta area, you are probably aware that we are expecting some snow tomorrow! So exciting...if it actually happens. I always say that my ideal job is actually a meteorologist because you don't ever have to be right. 'It's going to rain tomorrow...or not.' 'It's going to be sunny and warm tomorrow...and cloudy and cold.' Whatever! However, if it does snow I'll be super excited! And even more excited if I can get out of working!

So, for my fellow southeasterners who may not be well versed on the cold and snow (myself included), here are some tips to keep your house safe:
  • To ensure that your pipes don't freeze, leave your faucets dripping. Remember to turn on the cold and hot water.
  • Open your cabinet doors to allow warm air to surround your pipes.
  • Keep your garage doors shut (for those of you lucky peeps who actually have a garage).
  • Keep your blinds shut.
  • Remove hose pipes from outside bibs. This prevents water from freezing within your hose and starting the process of freezing your pipes.
  • Make sure you are using space heaters safely and turn them off before you go to bed.
Hope that everyone (in the ATL) stays safe tomorrow and enjoys the snow!
