Great! More crap to worry about!

Just opened the paper and it was saying

Anyone with an in-ground sprinkler system should drain the system.

How in the world do you do that? What does it really mean?!

Oh, yeah, and wrap the water pipes.

Btw, what's wrong with covering plants with plastic...?

Oh, well, I wrapped the pipes, covered the plants with sheets and towels, will try to cover the little waterfall, too, but the drip systems is on its own...

That stuff is too complicated. If anybody's interested: GreenTouch: Winterize your sprinkler system

Silly Sierra . . . how would you like to sleep under a PLASTIC BLANKET?

As for draining the system, I believe most systems have a built-in valve that relieves the pressure once the water is off.

Could be. It's pretty new and I haven't read the manual, of course... I covered its pipes, too, and the waterfall and will just pray for the best... I don't think we (hmm, not me) did a darn thing with the drip system in the past and it made it....

Yes! Get out there and cover those sweet, frail, little plants... out there in the open, and protect them from that 32-degree evil Jack Frost!

Take care of your Hibiscus, why doncha? Remember, only YOU can prevent frostbite!

Was it that bad last night really? I just got up and it looks pretty darn nice to me. Only that now I have to pick up sheets, towels, etc... Why do I even open the paper...?!
