Global warming! Oh - wait - no - it's "Climate change." That explains why Houston is having its coldest winter in over a decade and may see several days of temperatures at or near freezing. Do I wrap outside hose bibs? Drip faucets? Run up in the attic and insulate every exposed pipe up there? Not sure yet.
I'm waiting to see what others are doing, but the only thing I'm even considering is wrapping the hose bibs. My house, however, has builder-grade insulation, which means the home's heat LEAKS through the walls like crazy. So . . . I'm fairly sure the hose bibs will be all right.
Muffin has strep throat. I have a sinus infection. And (I haven't blogged about this yet) my mom passed away on Christmas.
Interestingly, I'm not overwhelmed by it. Just learning to roll with the punches. More rolling with the weather. I'll let you know about how we come through!
The Chill of Autumn has Arrived...
