Baby It’s Cold Outside!

My friend took this photo of her home, I snatched it off her Facebook page. Usually home photos in the Seattle winter look less than desirable but when it snows, we get that comforting charm of a good-old gingerbread house!

Just a reminder for all of you that when the temperature drops, please pay attention to the pipes in your home! If your pipes freeze, they have the potential of cracking or bursting, sending water gushing into your home. To prevent frozen pipes, you have to insulate them or provide warmth in the areas the pipes run. Crawlspace/basement are obvious but don’t forget about pipes in your attic! There are plenty of guides online to help you with what to do to prevent frozen pipes, such as this one by State Farm.
