Preparing for winter in the North and Northeast

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Preferred Realty

Are you preparing for winter up North?

Winter is no joke in parts of the North/Northeast of the United States. There's much to take into consideration and do to prepare. I've always lived in the Southeast but I know people all over the US and have family in cold weather areas. Below are some tips and links to help you prepare for the upcoming winter season.

Winter Tips for All:

  • Take inventory of your wardrobe to make sure you have what you need. By the time we get to winter they'll be selling spring and summer clothes.
  • Make sure you have proper tires for your car.
  • Check your sledding inventory for the fun days of snow.
  • Make sure you have proper amounts of coffee, tea, hot chocolate and wine for those really cold days.
  • Bring in your plants and prepare outdoor plants for cold days.
  • Make sure your furnace is running smoothly and replace your filters if needed.
  • Check insulation around the house so your pipes don't freeze and you keep warm air in and cold air out.

Hello Carla - even as a native Californian, I longed to experience East Coast life.  I was in my late 20s when I experienced it.  Although I had imagined my life living in New York City, I feel fortunate for the time I lived in Washington DC even though one of the winters there was a particularly snowy one.

Yes, DC winter is colder than our winter. Fall and Spring is gorgeous all along the East Coast. I'm sure California is lovely too.

this is a serious issue I know Carla even with the talk of global warming that some people actually think that snow is gone forever. Winter comes every year as it has this year an we are still in the Fall for another month. I am thank the Lord for the blessings of living in Sunny Arizona. Even here we need to put a sweater on especially in the evening during the winter months. Jeff

Jeff, I bet you do thank Him when you hear the winter weather report from other states.

Carla, we have already had 8", and another day with flurries.   Definitely time to prepare for upcoming winter weather.

Oh my gosh. I just switched from summer wardrobe to a fall wardrobe which basically means pants and closed toed shoes and a light jacket.

Carla Freund This is what the weathermen are predicting I just ordered a new winter jacket. Last year I did not even wear my winter coat. I am hoping they are wrong. either way, I am prepared!

Carla Freund

I haven't worn my winter coat in years. I bought it for skiing and tried it on recently. It's too small so I'll be donating a like new coat. I just layer up if needed.

These are definitely good tips and I am grateful that I don't have to do all of that to prepare for winter in my area, haha.

Me too! We have a few things to do like remove backflow valves from sprinkler systems and bring in plants.
