Yes! We are even frozen in Atlanta

Frozen water Feature due to temps

   I realize this may not seem all that impressive, especially since many of you have been buried in snow and experiencing a lot of ice.  However, here in the Atlanta area, this is a rarity.

  We normally do not have to worry about water pipes busting due to frigid temperatures or frozen water lines. Although this home did not have any of those issues, the outside water feature did succumb to the bitter cold. 

Our local weather stations are predicting even more freezing temps this week. Even though today we are reaching the low 50's, by tomorrow we are to only reach 30 degrees with the prediction of snow in some areas. The good news for us is that this cold snap will not last long, and what we call cold is nowhere near as bone chilling as other parts of the U.S. have or continue to experience.
