The deep freeze has been on in the Phoenix area for the past few days. Water pipes have been freezing all over town leaving many residents without flowing water. Luckily, we were left unscathed but I'm still left wondering, "Where are all the blogging plumbers when you need them?"
Proactive plumbing bloggers could have seen this "perfect storm" coming a mile away. Weather forecasts have been warning about a monster cold front the likes of which most Phoenicians have never seen, people here are famously under-prepared for natural events and nobody plans for freezing temps in Phoenix. Yet, yesterday morning was the coldest its been in Phoenix in 16 years.
Enter your friendly local plumber who just happened to recently setup a blog for his plumbing business. He is in a unique position to issue a warning to locals to prep their pipes for the approaching Arctic blast, thereby saving some people thousands of dollars and generating some loyal fans. Then, after lots of folks are either glad they listened to him or wish they had, our plumber is seen as a local expert.
