The cold weather has again hit the lake, turn your water off. frost free water spigots only work if turned off and need to be turned off even if you are connected to them, leaving the faucet dripping when temps get this low will still allow the pipes to freeze and create water fountains from broken pipes when the warm weather returns, turn your water off. So unless you have a well insulated water feed line to your trailer/cabin turn your water off. Heat tape only works if the power is on and we lose power occasionally so don't depend on it, turn your water off. We only have so much volunteer manpower and replacing spigots that froze and broke because you didn't turn your water off is not high on the list of repairs come spring, Please turn your water off!

I beg your pardon, did you mean we should shut off the water supply?

At your trailer when you leave, YES!
