Winter Home Preparedness

It happens every year, and no matter how long you mentally prepare for it, it still catches you off-guard. You guessed it: the first snowfall. There could be just a dusting of snow on the ground and the kids are already grabbing their snow boots and gear. Before everyone heads out to enjoy the weather, though, make sure your home and family are prepared for Ol’ Man Winter with these top 10 tips: 1. Buy a snow shovel, or two – keep sidewalks and front steps clear so no one slips and falls. The more shovels you have the more help you can recruit to get the job done.
