Our preferred method of winterization is to drive south, but we apparently are not good at it. We are stuck right now in Lubbock, TX in freezing rain, sheets of ice and temps. in the 20's until later tomorrow. We are supposed to drive to south Carlsbad NM tomorrow but the roads are not safe yet and many are closed with wrecks everywhere.
We are still learning the high plains/ central plains weather patterns (so different than coastal GA!) and I did not take the reports seriously enough. Both water hoses and the water softener frozen solid and the water pressure regulator ruined. Lucky we had fresh water in the tank and are running off of that until we move Thursday. Brought the hoses and softener inside to the shower to thaw out. We don't even own an ice scraper to chip the 1/2" of solid ice on the Moryde steps.
Our neighbor with a North Point very wisely re-plumbed his water softener to his basement and replaced his water hose with a heated one.
