Freezing temperatures are just around the corner as people fill their woodsheds and put winter tires on vehicles. Here are a few other questions to ask yourself: Are your water lines insulated or wrapped with heat tape? Are your irrigation lines blown out and shut down until spring? What about your pump house, is it heated? If you have stock waterers are the thermostats working and ready to come into action when needed? If you have outdoor pets do they have a heated water bowl? Preparing for the cold now is much easier than waiting until an Arctic front has arrived.
