Water pipes & freezing

Posted By: Pam

I am confused on water pipes freezing in cold weather. I have been told to let the faucet drip when it is below freezing outside. Some questions: 1. Will letting an inside sink faucet stop the oustide faucet from freezing and busting? 2. Which temperature do I need to keep an eye on - the actual outside temp or the wind chill. There has been a lot of days where the temp outside is 37 but the wind chill is 20. Which one do I need to let faucets drip for - I live in the south and homes are not cold weather insulated like they are when I lived up north. THANKS!!!!!
