Big Jim

Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, I got my start in radio with a fight in school -- yeah, no kidding! Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I served the U.S. Army in South Korea and worked for several years as a fire fighter. When I'm not at home or work you can catch me building haunted houses.

How to Keep Pipes From Freezing — It’s Cold in Tri-Cities!

Pipes in attics, crawl spaces and along outside walls are the most vulnerable to freezing. Cracks in the roof or walls -- or holes drilled for cables -- can allow freezing air to blow on pipes. Experts say uninsulated pipes can freeze at 20 degrees or below (we're way colder than that right now)
