The great things about winter are pulling out your fab boot collection and swimming in-doors at Hotch-kiss. Getting your house ready for winter, however, is about as much fun as when your mother had you clean your room as a kid. Or sorting socks. Anyway, it's starting to get cold, so here we go:
o Get your furnace cleaned, your chimney swept and test your roof coils.
o Order your firewood.
o The mice are running for your walls so plan accordingly.
o Swap lawn games for shovels and check the braces on your snowshoes.
o Put the hoses away, drained.
o Turn off your outside water.
o Clear drains and gutters of debris and leaves.
o Pop out screens and replace with storm windows.
o Caulking is the fun part, so daub away.
Then you can plan to cozy up in front of the fire and catch up on Netflix...
