It’s the first snowfall of the season! It’s supposed to warmup the rest of the week, but this is a good reminder to prepare for colder temperatures:

🍂 Clear leaves from gutters and storm drains to prevent ice dams from forming.

🕵️‍♀️ Have your furnace inspected by a professional.

🕵️‍♀️Check the batteries in carbon monoxide detectors.

🏡 Weatherstrip windows and doors.

❄ Prepare your snowblower or arrange for snowplowing service BEFORE the first big snowfall.

❄ Mark your property with snow markers to identify curbs, landscaping, walks, etc.

🚗 Replace your car’s wiper blades.

🚗 Replace worn tires and check air pressure.

🚗 Create a winter car and home safety kit.
