Being Prepared For ICE! A Koi Pond Video Replay | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Almost every year we get a good cold snap. January is usually the month when it happens too. Guess what, next week, it’s on!

Sustained freezing temps = ICE. Ice makes beautiful formations around the waterfalls, But there’s more to know.

Momday night the temperature will drop down in the teens, we will get some snow and ice, and the temps will stay below Freezing (32 degrees) for 5-6 days… ❄️ Those of us with Koi ponds can either stay ahead and be ready, OR we can wait till it happens and say “what can I do & why did this happen”… My advice – Be prepared!

– To be ready it’s as simple as this – keep a water hose ready for use! A water hose that’s DRY, ie: no water in it so it won’t be frozen! WHY you ask? Because you may have to add some water to your Pond when the ice takes up enough water in the system as the following video will show you. Keep 2 things ready at all times in the Winter months – a dry hose & a 5 gallon bucket. If you do that, you will be good 😊 Watch this short video for more info –

Be ready! And Happy Pondering!

If You Don’t Like The Weather, Just Wait a Few Minutes…

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring- And that old tune is right on the money today! WOW what a storm! 40+ mile an hour winds too… But the kicker comes tonight!

This is so true! The weather is changing today! Thunder storms and high winds with temps in the upper 50’s will change over the next several hours to an ice and snow mix with temps in the LOW 20’s! 😲

I think one of the most important things to remember is our pets. The temps are gonna go LOW & will stay that way for several nights – and they will need a little shelter.

We’re gonna be cold for the next couple weeks. Don’t forget – If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for them.

Stay warm folks! And have a Great Weekend!
