Protect Your Pipes
In the rare event of a freeze, protect your pipes by insulating them. If temperatures drop significantly, let faucets drip to prevent pipes from freezing.
Cover sensitive plants or bring them indoors during frost warnings. Protecting your plants can prevent damage from cold temperatures.
If using space heaters, follow safety guidelines to prevent accidents. Ensure that heating systems are in good working order to keep your home warm.
Keep an emergency kit with essentials such as non-perishable food, water, medications, flashlights, and blankets. In case of power outages, having a backup power source or generator can be helpful.
If you have pets, bring them indoors during extremely cold weather. Provide them with warm bedding and access to shelter.
Remember that winter weather in Texas can be unpredictable, so it’s essential to stay informed and be prepared for various conditions.
