Residents in our area should expect freezing conditions to continue for the remainder of the week. Continue to monitor the National Weather Service, local media and ReadyHarris for forecasts and preparedness information. Reach out to your friends and neighbors and continue to pray for each other.


Helpful tips to prevent hard freeze damage:

  1. Insulate exterior water pipes.  This can be done with foam pipe wrap made for this purpose long-term or using a towel and duct tape temporarily.  A Koozie and a rubber band can be used over a hose bib.  Be creative!
  2. Turn off your sprinkler system and make sure the backflow preventer is drained. These freeze very easily and are expensive to repair.  Here are a couple of links to show you how to drain your backflow preventer. https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/2013/12/05/48058/how-to-protect-your-sprinkler-system-from-a-freeze/   https://www.zodega.com/winterize-backflow-preventer/
  3. In older structures, keep faucets interior lightly dripping through the freeze period and open cabinet doors under sinks to provide warm air circulation.
  4. If you have a chiller on your HVAC system, be sure the freeze-protection mode is enabled.  This mode runs the pump so that the water does not freeze in the coils while the temperature is below freezing.
  5. Of course, cover those tropical plants, or bring them inside if you can.
