Important Weather Alert For Late Saturday / Early Sunday


The National Weather Service has forecast that starting late tonight until early Sunday morning the outdoor temperatures in the Central Florida region which includes cities, towns and unincorporated areas in Hardee, Highlands and Polk Counties will fall to the low 30° F mark meaning that we'll be experiencing extreme freezing weather. Lodges are suggested to set your thermostat to a minimum of 68° F to a maximum of 74° F, these temperatures will assure that your incoming and outgoing water and sewerage lines do not freeze and break, additionally in your restrooms you should place some Propylene Glycol in your toilets/urinals to prevent the pipelines from freezing and breaking.

I know there are Brethren who feel that setting the thermostat to the suggest temperature inside their lodge for a long period of time (Approximately 11 hours) can be costly, however you have to realize that if you don't take precautions to protect your lodge building it could cost the lodge upwards of several thousands of dollars in repairs (Generally not covered by your insurance policy). Don't take a chance, please make sure your lodge and more importantly you and your family stay warm and safe.
