The first weekend of November is the ideal time to winterize your sprinkler system and to reset all your clocks.

There's a reason why you see all the "sprinkler blowout" signs around town. Our climate in southeast Washington and northeast Oregon falls under "cold winters."   If you neglect to do this important task you'll have a big headache and irrigation repair bill in the spring.

So save yourself a headache and spend the $35 to have a qualified company to bring in a high volume compressor to clear your lines.

Also, don't forget to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday, Nov. 3!
