Pro Tip: Get Pipe Insulation Before the Freeze

This year get ahead of the crowd by getting your pipe foam insulation BEFORE the first freeze. Don't get caught standing in Lowes at 8:59 the night of the freeze looking at the ransacked insulation isle. As you start to panic, an employee comes around the corner: "Excuse me, SIR, but you'll have to come back tomorrow." Inside you quietly hope dripping the faucets will get you through this first freeze.

Last year we wrote a post about all sorts of safe ways to keep your pipes insulated.

We also wrote an important post about what to absolutely never do: never try to use a heat lamp and blankets to protect your well. It could likely have devastating consequences for your well like fire, or worse.

So that's why it's so important to think ahead and prepare while it's still in the 50s and 60s. Lowe's seems to have the lower prices, but Home Depot carries foam insulation as well, of course.
