    Ladder post hole

    I pulled my ladder out and the two holes filled up with water. Is there anything I need to do to prevent them from freezing and cracking the cement?

    Wash them out with a nozzle on the end of a garden hose. There should be a drain/weep hole in the bottom of them but it may be clogged up. If that does not work then you can probably stuff a piece of a pool noodle in there to dislodge some water and just leave it in there over the winter to absorb any freezing pressure from water remaining.
