Jill, now that my two snow throwers are all grown up and ready to move on with their lives I think I need a snow-blower.  This is a great list.  Have a great Sunday.

Thak you for sharing the lost with all of us. For those in the Northeast, hopefully everything on this list has long been handled. Make it a great day.

Looks like a complete list and a little more than we have to do out here on the Oregon coast. Might bring the BBQ  and patio furniture in if you haven't.

Hi Mike - Ha! That's the spirit! They should earn their keep.

Joe - Normally, this might still be early in the season, but I can't say that about this year.

Rob - Great suggestion, if you have the room. I forgot those.

Good advice, Jill. Here in FL we can ignore a few of those items (storm windows, snow blowers, ice scrapers) but having grown up in the north I always feel a little nostalgic for least at the beginning of winter!

Julie - I hear you. Nostalgic, at the beginning of winter, before all the excitement for snow is gone.
