The crazy-cold weather in Houston this week has shocked us all. Many of us don’t remember it ever being this cold, and for good reason—the last time Houston experienced multiple days of below-freezing temperatures was decades ago.
With the extreme weather have come serious implications, including frozen and burst water pipes that threaten to damage homes and properties.
Many Houstonians have never had to deal with frozen pipes. Sadly, as pipes have frozen, burst, and thawed, they’ve released floods of water now ruining ceilings, walls, flooring, furniture, and possessions. It’s like adding insult to injury, and the people of Houston are now cold, miserable and distressed.
