UPDATED Due to the latest storms in Atlanta.

With temperatures in Atlanta expected to be in the teens tonight and a wind chill factor  of zero I thought I would remind everyone to use a hose bib cover on their outside water faucets.  It is a simple foam device that attaches with a rubber band structured and then has a cinch cord to secrue it. It also keeps the faucet from being directly exposed to the elements.  They run a couple of bucks at your nearby hardware or home improvement store.

This is an update to the post.  With more cold and snowy weather moving into the Atlanta area I created a video that talks about the protection measures to take when securing your outside pipes.  The cost involved is so minimal it is something you just should do to avoid costly repairs later.
