DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- The cold weather that plagued metro Atlanta this week is keeping maintenance crews scrambling both outside and inside buildings.
DeKalb County had problems with pipes bursting, including inside a school.
A spokesman for DeKalb County Schools said a pipe that cleans the heating unit at Henderson Middle School in Chamblee burst early Thursday morning. The pipe was repaired and the entire mess was cleaned up before classes started, but some parents still opted to keep their children home because of the smell.
As the spokesman put it, pipes bursting is one of the problems that comes with extremely cold weather.
