How to Prevent Frozen Pipes When You're Away From Your Lake Home
When the temperatures drop really low, your pipes have a chance of freezing which puts pressure on them and can cause them to burst. Here’s some preventative measures to reduce the chances that this ever happens to you!

Insulate Pipes
If you have an attic or crawl space you may want to consider insulating those pipes. You can also wrap your pipes in heat tape or heat cables with a thermostat control. Depending on your home will determine which type of pipe insulation will be best for you.

Seal or Caulk Any Cracks that Might Let in Cold Air
If there are any cracks in your home, especially where pipes run from inside to outside the home. You should seal or caulk things like dryer vents and water pipes.

Have a Neighbor Keep an Eye Out
If you don't live at your home full time and have a trusty neighbor, give them a key so they could check up on things every once in a while. This will help you possibly catch the problems early and give you peace of mind.

Take Other Preventative Measures Inside Your Home
  • Open the kitchen and bathroom doors/cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. This is especially necessary if your sinks are on an exterior wall.
  • Let cold water drip from a pipe that is served by exposed pipes. The water only needs to be running at a trickle to prevent the pipes from freezing.
  • Leave the heat on in your home and do not let it drop below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Turn off your water completely at your main shut-off and blow your pipes out to ensure all water has even removed.
  • If there is a room that gets much colder than others you may want to consider adding a space heater to that room. Just be sure the space heater is plugged into a GFCI outlet and don't use an extension cord.

How to Get Yourself Through Winter When You're Ready for Summer

The holidays have come and gone. The New Year is here and now all we have to do is wait as patiently as possible for the warm summer months to be here. Trust us, this is much easier than it sounds. We have been waiting for summer to come around again since the second she left us. We are waiting for those sunny days on the lake and the nights by the campfire. Sounds dreamy, doesn't it? While you're waiting for winter to come to an end, here's some things you can do to enjoy it to the fullest!

Light the Fireplace, a Candle or Turn Some Lamps On
Since the winter days have the shortest amount of light it can be hard to get the feeling of summer when it is dark out by 5pm. During the day make sure you open up all your blinds to let all that natural light in. At night you can light a candle or your fireplace to help bring in some more light to your home.

Cook Summer Foods
When most of us think summer we think of grilling burgers, eating corn on the cob and watermelon. While these are thought to be "summer foods", it doesn't mean you can't have this meal in the winter. Cook up a summer meal and let it make you think it is good ole summertime.

Fresh Flowers in the Kitchen
Fresh flowers have an effect on your smell, sight, and touch. They are bright and colorful and can really change your mood around. Trader Joe's has beautiful affordable arrangements year 'round.

Put Some Summer Smells Around Your Home
Anything that smells like sea breeze, coconut, or tanning oil screams summer. Find some candles or wall plug-ins that smell like summer to give you that summer effect.

Choose Bright Colors for Your Home Decor
Whites, yellows, greens, oranges and other bright summer colors are perfect for your home decor. It will lighten your mood while you're lounging on the couch or cooking dinner.
