Baby It's Cold Outside!

Hey everyone! It's been a mild winter so far in Philly, but I woke to find this yesterday morning...
A Public Service Announcement
Water freezes at 32 degrees,
broken pipes can bring you to your knees.
If you live where it gets this cold,
do your chores, no matter how old.
Fix the drips and unhook your hose,
before you're paying through the nose!
Cordially, Billy-Joe-Bob's Plumbing Service, we're in the Yellow Pages.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog...
Have a happy day:@)

  2. So far we've had a mild winter in Central Texas as well. We had an ice storm in Feb of last year...got iced in with snow and such...the kids missed a week of school. They would like to see that again! I would not!

    Hugs, Jeanne

  5. We've had a few freezing evenings here in SC this week also. I can hear those pipes creaking at night. Great advice. Stay warm!

  6. Thanks for that good reminder, Lynn. It was in the low teens here a few nights ago which is very cold for our area. Thankfully, the hose still hooked up out back didn't break but I will now take care of that situation. The ad is cute.----Shannon

  13. Winterizing is soooo important. It usually doesn't get that bad where we live but up at our cabin my husband uses compress air to blow out the water lines after shutting off the pump every time he leaves.
    Funny how showing up late at night to a cabin full of water in the middle winter will motivate you to never forget to do this again.

  14. Good advice, Lynn!...Christine

  15. too cute! we deal with broken pipes here in Texas during winter too - just not as well insulated as northern climes...

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is a clever marketing strategy, Lynn. Good reminder. xo

  17. Lynn,
    True. Great advertising, too!

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL! A little warmer today but I love the cold weather.

  19. Oh, Lynn -- how horrible. When we lived in the OLD farmhouse in Minnesota, we also left open the cupboard doors under sinks so warmer air could circulate around those pipes -- we learned.

    Blessings!

  20. ARGH.....I just left you a looooong and wonderful :) comment and when I hit "preview", it took it away and insisted I sign into Google. :( Guess I won't hit preview again!

    Anyway, I told you how I hate frozen pipes, too, and how we had an outside faucet freeze when we were building this house. Ever since, I make sure we get the styrofoam covers on them as soon as we take the hoses off.

    I hate to say it, but our temp is supposed to be in the MID 60s this afternoon. I will be out there exercising...just as soon as I take my nap! :) Not kidding. I just took down our real tree and I'm worn out.

    I also told you, in my comment that flew away, that I copied your cabbage soup recipe. I know our weather will get nasty, snowy and cold before long (knowing Missouri, it will probably be tomorrow!! :) and that soup will be a tasty treat!

    Happy 2012!!

  22. I believe that "paying through the nose" bit- that's for sure! Good reminder to winterize though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for this great reminder - we've had some bitter weather here in the Carolinas too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Been there, done that. Freezing pipes are not fun!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Or get one of those no freeze tap thingies, they work!
    Hope your pipes didn't freeze?

    ReplyDelete
  26. HAHAHA! Is that really in the yellow pages? That's so cute.

    And it's cold here. I can only imagine how cold it is where you live.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How cute is that?! I forget if I unhooked the hose or not now. Hmmmm, I may have to go and check on it. Darn, it's cold though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL, that Billy Joe Bob is clever!
    Freezing here in NY, too, but I prefer the colder weather :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for the funny reminder. :) It's been cold in Alabama too! It was 16 degrees one morning this week! Today's supposed to be sunny and get up into the 60's though! I hope to get out and enjoy it.

  30. Cute ad! We're enjoying some unusually nice January weather here but I know it won't last long!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lol! we went though that last year, after a hard freeze, had to replace the whole water main from the street to our house. Not fun.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, so sorry to hear about the frozen pipes. Good advice to follow in the cold weather.
