Panic freeze

Now that the weather liars have forecast freezes with possible precipitation on Thursday and Friday nights, some people at Neely’s Canyon are panicking. Thinking back to last February. When water lines all over town froze up and burst such that they flooded when thawed out.

And then were denied water altogether until the pipes were fixed over a week or more. But that takes a hard freeze. Not just hitting the low twenties and bouncing back up but staying there for two or three hours. We’ll see if that happens. But we will comply with dripping faucets on outside walls. Just in case.

UPDATE: Indeed, Friday morning was down to 27 where it stayed for several hours. Not sure that’s really a hard freeze, but time will tell. Hard freezes kill a lot of our bugs, including scorpions. Saturday morning supposed to be even colder, with a possible low of 24.

MORE: Friday morning it fell to 26 and 27 where it again stayed for several hours. Ought to have minimum of bugs this year as a result.
