Well Georgians we have had a couple of good bouts with freezing temps. Michigan and Wisconsin seem to be used to the extreme temps but us here in Georgia suffer. We do not have the means to clear the roads or prepare them properly, to prevent freezing ice patches. That's why we have all the chaos. I have heard many stories of folks stranded in their cars over night, 20 hours etc. . Hey, it might be a good idea to pack an emergency kit in the car come January 2015.
Well in the world of Another Lawn Sprinkler Co., I have repaired a few breaks. You may find when the temperatures rise that you too have a break and a leak especially if you didn't shut your irrigation system off for the winter. Watch your water bill, walk your property, don't be non nonchalant about it. then choke when you get a high bill or see a pool some where in your yard. If you need a repair you know who to call. Stay warm.
