Ever wonder why some people shut off the water at their garages in winter?

Oops. I was a little concerned when I left my place to do some work in California during November and December. I left the heat off, but the water heater on. It got down to 17 below while I was gone, but the pipes didn't freeze. I consider myself lucky. I think the heat from the neighbors' ajoining units (and maybe the family of cats living in the crawl space) had something to do with it.

Once it all melted off I bet the cars would be fine.

That's kinda funny.

The question is how long it will take the ice to melt.

Close the door and stick a Mr. Heater in the corner and "Not long at all." would be the answer to the question.

Sometimes the car doesn't even have to be in the garage for that to occur...
