Couple Days Left to Prepare For Extremely Cold Temperatures

(Farmington) The main concern for this Christmas week winter storm in the forecast is the extremely cold temperatures expected to begin late Thursday afternoon and may continue through Christmas night.

If your water freezes, that could be a nightmare you don’t want to experience.

Scott Plummer is the owner of Plummers Ace Hardware in downtown Farmington.

He says you do have a two-day window to get yourself prepared to have a better chance of your water not freezing.

Plummer says heat tape is another good tool you could utilize.

Plummer’s Ace Hardware in Farmington also carries salt but Plummer says once the temperature gets in the single digits, the salts’ melting power slows.

And if you can take the cold this weekend and are looking to have some outdoor fun, Plummers also carries sleds.
