Trickle Alert: Tonight’s Low 17°F (Learn How To Protect Your Pipes)
PIPE ALERT: ANIMAL ALERT: HYPOTHERMIA ALERT
ROBERTSON COUNTY (MIDDLE) TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – PIPE ALERT: Expected low for tonight and tomorrow night will hover in the teens with a short warm-up into the low 30’s on Friday. If you have exposed pipes, be sure to allow at least one faucet to trickle to help prevent pipes from freezing. It’s best to pick a faucet that’s furthest from the water source coming into the home and open cabinet doors under sinks on outer walls. If you are not sure, you can always trickle more than one sink. Be sure to only trickle the water and make sure the drain is clear and open.
With wind-chill, it will feel like 7°F Friday morning. Be sure to bundle up.
Check On Elderly Neighbors
Be sure to check on elderly neighbors to make sure their heating systems are working properly and no extension cords are being used with electric heaters.
The low temps can also stress animals. Pets should be brought in or adequate thermal shielding should be provided. *The current cold temperatures will produce wind chills in the single digits.
If you must travel… Keep an extra flashlight, blanket… Food… And water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
