Remember winter weather basics
As always, the City of Round Rock reminds residents to follow the four “P’s” of winter weather safety:
- PEOPLE: Keep your family warm and check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need extra blankets, help winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay.
- PETS: Bring dogs and cats inside at night to keep them healthy and safe.
- PLANTS: Either cover plants to keep them warm at night or bring them inside so they can flourish.
- PIPES: Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks. Check out our comprehensive blog on creating a Winter Ready Water System in your home that prevents your pipes from freezing and breaking in winter weather. Turn off sprinklers to prevent causing damage to your irrigation system.
