A Christmas Poem by Darlene…

T’Was the night before Christmas and all through Rand-Handy
All was so quiet-the jar full of candy
The vans were all stocked and parked with such care
The oil trucks were all full and just sitting there.
The techs were all nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of Christmas (and a day off) danced in their heads.
And Gina in her ‘kerchief and Darlene in her cap
Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap.
When a call from the service interrupted Bob’s sleep
His pager has gone off with a sequence of beeps.
A boiler has burst-Oh no! this can’t happen.
This service is going to interrupt my nappin’!
But I must head out and service this customer now.
It doesn’t matter that it’s starting to snow!
He put on his boots and headed out the door
In the van he jumped-his foot to the floor.
But he couldn’t help notice what he saw in the skies
A sleigh full of toys-what a wonderous surprise!
But as he looked closer, he could hardly believe
Why, that’s George who’s driving and by golly, that’s Steve!
And he called to the reindeer, they all had names that he knew
On, Kyle- On, Joe- On, Ben and Mark too!
And here comes Dan holding up the back
He’s having a time holding on to that toy sack
But I heard them all call as they flew out of sight
“Merry Christmas to ALL and to all a Good Night”


As we approach colder weather we always like to offer some suggestions to help prevent frozen pipes.

  1. Don’t turn the thermostats down too low. Turning the thermostat down when you are at work or away for a few days will save you money on heating costs. Don’t overdo it. We don’t recommend setting the temperature below 55 degrees.
  2. Wrap your pipes in insulation or heating tape. Condensation often causes hot water pipes to freeze before cold water pipes. Wrap your pipes, especially those that run through unheated spaces. You might also consider electric heating tape.
  3. If you are away for an extended period of time, it’s a good idea to open the cabinet doors under your sink(s) for air movement — especially if the sink is on an outside (cold) wall like most kitchens.
  4. Keep your thermostat set at the same temperature during both day and night. You might be in the habit of turning down the heat when you’re asleep, but further drops in the temperature – more common overnight – could catch you off guard and freeze your pipes.
