One thing you can always count on when you live in Colorado is wild weather.
Today is expected to be in the upper 70's with lots of sunshine.
Monday is another story!
The forecast calls for highs reaching 38 degrees with snow beginning around 3am. With a warm, sunny weekend, I am hoping that the streets will be too warm for snow to stick, but who knows.
If you haven't done it yet, this weekend is a good time to shut down your irrigation system and get ready for the freeze.
Be sure to turn the sprinkler valve in the basement off and remove the thumb screw so water has a chance to trickle out. This screw should stay off until next spring when we start the cycle all over again.
Don't forget to disconnect hoses from the faucets outside as well.
With these cold temperatures, it is also recommended that you wrap your outside pipes and backflow devices in insulation.
Here we go Colorado! What's next - 80 degrees on Tuesday?
