When do you turn off your outside faucets?

Not specifically related to irrigation, but when do you guys shut down your outside faucets (i.e. shut off the water to them in the basement and drain them)? Next week it's looking to be as low as 28 one night.

I’ve already done mine. But that’s because I do it when I disconnect hoses.

I'm a little late, but did it this morning. I've had to pay to replace too many times :). For the less initiated, I turn on the inside shutoff valve off and open the outside faucet.

I turned mine off over a week ago, kept them off during the extreme cold, but then turned them back on the other day, and am not in a rush to turn them off again just yet (maybe another week)...I still need to wash stuff out.
