Are you talking about Atlanta, Georgia ? If so, absolutely no reason to consider skirting. Highs in the 50's, lowest is 25 tonight, not freezing the rest of the week.....when it does freeze it's probably for a short period before the morning.
A lot colder than that here in New Mexico, we have insulated our outside water hose, that's it, we leave the furnace set at 57 for the night, it's been down into the lower teens several nights, 20's all next week. No problems.
