Temps below freezing, and some even below zero in the higher elevations, caused lots of frozen pipes. Once the temps stared nudging above freezing that started the bursted pipes.

Frozen and bursted pipes caused more than just water damage. As WF&R posted below, it became necessary to relocate residents from an apartment complex that was flooded from bursted pipes.

A much bigger thaw is on the way this week with temps making it to around 60° by the New Year Weekend.
