Happy Thursday to all!!! Tomorrow marks the end of the 1st week back to school for our children. Let’s keep praying our children are having a safe and happy 1st week back to school.
The days are cooling off and its a reminder that we need to start prepping for fall and winter. Here are some helpful tips for all you homeowners…
-Cold weather brings on freezing so start covering exposed pipes with insulation. You may also want to think about your septic systems and making sure those are protected as well from the freezing temps we get in our Northern Minnesota winters.
– Clean out the Gutters. When leaves and other debris freeze in our gutters we can really end up with some big problems in the spring thaw.
-Put all those kid toys, adult toys away, garden hoses and lawn furniture to prevent them from breaking in the freezing temps.
-Seal up any windows or doors that you may feel some cold air creeping in. This will help you on your heating bills.
-One big thing inside the home is to make sure that your CO & Smoke Detectors are all working correctly. As you start turning on your heat sources you will want to protect your family.
-Clean out the Chimney.
– Make sure all of your snow removal tools, snowblowers, plow trucks and four wheelers are serviced and ready to go.
Its easy to put these honey to do lists off but wouldn’t you want to do it now before it is cold outside and you can’t stand to be out in the cold! Happy Thursday everyone.
