There's Still Time...

...to get your home ready for Winter!

I came across an article on the Bob Vila Blog, written by Lyna Bort Caruso, that provides a Winter preparedness checklist. Seems like a lot to do BUT your home is your castle and we don't want a drafty castle or unkempt yard, do we? There's still time even though many of us have already had our 1st or 2nd cold snap. Click the link below for the article.

 

Winter Preparation Checklist.

Good stuff Doug Dawes . Living in an AFB community I had to remind a lot of 1st time home owners about these things being many came from Southern states. I did not look at the long list but one that often gets overlooked is how important it is to remove a garden hose from the spigot. If not removed it will burst a pipe in the house. I never really figured that out but I've seen it happen so many times I know it does happen often.

Great checklist to prepare your home for the winter chill. Larry has his snow blower tuned-up and he put it right in front of the inside of our garage to be ready...
