Water pipes are more susceptible to freezing this time of year when the air temperature outside is below freezing for more than a few days. To avoid frozen pipes make sure your basement is heated where the water meter and water pipes are located. Also insulate water pipes that are against outside walls. Make sure all windows and cracks, which allow cold outside air in are sealed, and consider letting your water run on a trickle during extreme cold periods.
