Preparation for Winter

Real Estate Agent with MKB, Realtors 0225242718

As the weather returns to its seasonal patterns, the frost is on the ground when we wake, and there is a chill in the air. Winter is officially one month away, and now is the time to think about preparing your house for the season.

I have made several improvements to my house, and plan several more, in an effort to keep my house insulated from the cold air that is outside. This is quite a challenge since I live in a drafty 1915 house. Last month, I only turned my heat on once, and the bill was still about $140. I remember in past years paying over $300 for the gas bill in the coldest months of the Winter.

Here is a link to a site that helps to remind you of additional efforts that you can take in your houses this Winter: https://www.lowes.com/n/how-to/winter-preparedness-checklist

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving, Bill - proper preparation is a good message to share.  Any time.  I see this post arrives after you have taken a bit of a respite from ActiveRain.  I have often shared that I am grateful for the lack of AR attendance sign-in sheet.  Have a nice holiday.

I have not written a post in a minute, but I try to check in every day to read new blogs.

Thanks for the comment, John. I am sure that you do not need to prepare for Winter in your town in southern California.

Thank you Bill for your tidbits of how to get ready for the seasonal change. I always feel like a chipmunk getting ready for winter because I'm running all over the place to find my insulated watchamacallits 😎

Thank you for the comment, Paul. I need to develop the store of insulated watchmacallits myself.
