Re: EXTREME freezing temperatures - What to worry about?

Keep the house warm, turn on your water taps to a slow trickle so pipes won't freeze. The noise is normal. Was -45 back home last night.

By now, you know where your plumbing is in your house, so if you have any vulnerable runs, just leave a faucet running with a slow drip overnight. The moving water will be less likely to freeze in the pipe.

The water itself is nearly freezing in temperature. I think it only doesn't freeze due to pressure

But by now, this 46 years old house has seen it all.

Crick crack pop... here we go again. Damn you wood.

Yeah the noise is normal, but this thread is distracting me from being home alone and hearing those noises

I wonder how my neighbor is doing.
He has had a small broken window covered by a piece of plastic wrap for a couple of years now. I bet they're feeling the cold!
