The cold continues to linger in the area. Not a lot of good comes from being cold for long periods of time. Some cities are experiencing water line freeze-ups. One thing that we can do is run our tap water until it gets real cold and then take the temperature of the water.
If it is 40 degrees or lower, call City Hall at 346-4455 on what to do. It’s better to be safe than sorry. You will probably need to run your water with a stream the size of a pencil until it warms up, but call and someone will give you advice. The frost is going down deeper as the cold lingers.
Those of you who are burning wood, please check your chimney and make sure that it is clear of any buildup. Chimneys create some buildup when temperatures warm up and you can cut back and don’t burn as much wood.
Pray for warmer weather, everyone!
