How to Prepare Your Home for Snowmageddon This WeekendHow to Prepare Your Home for Snowmageddon This Weekend

As we are in the thick of January, it’s prime time for snow to hit Charlotte hard and fast. With it comes increased chances of power outages, accidents and bare shelves at grocery stores. Read this article to learn how to prepare your home for Snowmageddon and make sure your entire family is safe and warm. Don’t leave your home for sale in Ardrey unprotected against an icy vortex!

 

Outside Your Home

With a winter storm looming, it’s time to clean out gutters in a Ardrey house for sale. Additionally, it is wise to disconnect and drain all outside hoses and shut off outdoor water valves.

 

Make sure your roof is clear of any large tree branches and debris so that there is no extra weight on your house when snow falls. While you’re at it, purchase some rock salt and pretreat your walkways and driveway before the icy weather hits. This makes falling less likely and clean-up easier.

 

Inside Your Home

A few simple tips will do wonders when it comes to preparing the inside of an Ardrey home for sale for Snowmageddon. If you have a fireplace, keep the flue closed when it’s not in use. Make sure your furniture isn’t blocking any heating vents.

 

In your kitchen and bathrooms, keep cabinet doors open during especially cold spells. This will keep the pipes from freezing! Speaking of your kitchen, make a grocery stop before the weather hits to make certain you have enough food on hand for your family. Traveling is best avoided when winter weather knocks!

 

Snowmageddon Looming

With all of this said, we are bracing for up to 7 inches of snow starting tonight! With all counties under a state of emergency, it’s time to prepare your homes and families. Power outages are expected so makes sure you have plenty of firewood on hand to stay warm inside a Charlotte luxury home for sale.

I was waiting to see if this snow dump was going to be in some place in Northern Montana, and then I read Charlotte.  Does that mean stay in if the snow covers the grass?
