Philadelphia has a great climate: Four seasons....Long spring and fall...Winter not too brutal. It is very rare that our winter temperatures drop below 20 degrees. Philly is famous for its row houses: rows of townhouses that share walls with the townhouses on either side. That makes them cheaper to heat. The owners of one townhouse moved out and set the therostadt to 55-degrees. That should have been fine. But alas, near zero temperatures hit. A pipe behind the wall somewhere burst. Next week, another artic blast is coming our way. What should we do to make the vacant house secure????
