Very Interesting Article by Lovett Weems –
Especially where he asks what we’re doing about this trend. 


A friend alerted me to a blog by Thom Schultz, founder of Group Publishing, on “The Rise of the Dones.” At first I thought there must be a misprint. Surely the title meant to refer to the rise of the “Nones,” the increasingly large number of people, especially among those under 30, who choose as their religious affiliation “None.”

what you can do to keep pipes from freezing

During a cold snap in 2014, we had more than 1,000 frozen pipe claims in just two weeks. And they came from all over the country.

In fact, our customers in warmer climates are often the most at risk because they don’t think they need to take the necessary precautions.

Freezing not only damages the pipes themselves, it also can cause water leaks and
mold damage.

Our short Safety Series video, Prevent Frozen Pipes, shows what you can do to help prevent this from happening to you. It also explains how to minimize damage if your pipes do end up freezing. Take a few moments to watch it today. And be sure to share it with others in your organization.
