Keep your pipes warm and happy

Greetings Daviess County resi-dents! I hope you have been able to stay warm and out of the snow and ice we’ve been having a lot of this winter. Seems Mother Nature is reminding us this year of what winter is like after having a couple of mild winters in the books over the past few years. In my news column this time I would like to share about upcoming programs and preventing and thawing frozen pipes. Don’t hesitate to call, stop by, or email me if I can be of assistance. Until next time, stay dry, safe, and warm.
