So, it is that time of year again when the weather can turn cold, as in darn cold and become so on a dime.
So it is also that time of year when I have to be ready to deal with the eventualities of what to do about water . . . it freezes.
Something to remember is that first of all, the water (or liquid rather) that is in my Grey and Black Water Tanks can and will freeze.
When they freeze they can and will cause a great deal of damage. Which is why when it look like it will go below zero, (nearing or dipping below -10C) I will dump my tanks.
This year I may go more of a wuss and dump my tanks at -5C, just to avoid trying to thaw out my Grey and Black Water Tanks enough to dump them (like last year).
The other thing to think of is fresh water, and how to keep it liquid. What I do is to keep it in two litre soda bottles that I have rinsed out.
Those bottles are about the right size and weight to use an handle, yet I can also put them in my bed to keep them warm and prevent them from freezing.
Another trick to help prevent these bottles from freezing is to fill them right up to the tipy-top with water.
The less air space there is, the less likely they will start freezing. That’s what I’ve found anyways.
Again, figuring out where you will get water, how you will store it and how you will keep it liquid are vital things to know BEFORE the cold of winter hits.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
