Local business gets water running again


A concern at one local business is starting to thaw out.

Earlier in the week, we told you about McCaffery Lighting on Ironwood and its frozen pipes. Frigid temperatures got the better of them, but we're happy to tell you that water is back up and running.

The owner, Tam Schneider, says the fix was easier than she thought it would be.

"We just put a portable heater where the water comes into the building," she says. "Evidently, it was frozen right by the meter. We ran it for two days and at the end of the second day, we started to get a trickle. And by the end of the day, we had a full blast of water. "

While that worked for the shop, be very careful if you try the same technique at home. It could start a fire.

The last time the business dealt with frozen pipes was back in 1985.
