Getting ready for the winter
How to get ready for winter? It’s December and it is time you get geared up for the winter. Stock your house with a lot of food and warm clothes. Here are some tips on how to make your winter more comfortable:
Get your warm clothes
Black Friday shopping is a good deal to get in a couple of jackets and thermals for the winter. Discounts on those expensive items is encouraging to get ready and easy to fit in the budget.
Things you need?
Coats, hats, beanies, gloves, jackets, boots, scarfs. If you live in extremely cold weather, you might want to buy some thermals and heavier jackets. Moreover, having layers to put on is always beneficial.
Build your stockpile
Here in the South it’s not a problem. But in Colorado and many northern states it can be. Weather can get bad anytime in the prime 2-3 months when it is snowing or storming. Stocking food for at least a week or two is recommended. You do not want to get stuck inside your house in a snowstorm with no food. Also, having a few frozen or preserved edibles help.
Cook ahead of time
Catching the flu or getting sick is very common in harsh weather. Maybe cooking for a week and freezing for later so that you can eat healthier and avoid outside food.
Make sure to check your snow-clearing machines.
You do not want to be ready to get to your work and get stuck with all the snow on the driveway. Furthermore, if your snow-clearing machine isn’t working it is surely going to be a very bad day. Make sure it is working before the snow starts so that you can get it fixed as required. Also, make sure you have enough deicer and rock salt stocked up for winter.
Take care of your patio furniture
You do not want your patio furniture to be frozen in snow and its color to fade. It is suggested you keep it inside or with a proper covering during winter. This will help you avoid cleaning it in the spring and will make your furniture look new for a long time.
Shut the water for your outdoor faucets
Water freezes as it gets cold and it might lead to pipes and faucets bursting due to excess pressure. You can avoid broken pipes or any accidents by shutting off the water faucet for outdoors. There are foster-free faucets available if you absolutely need to keep those on for the winters.
Do not forget the festivals
Even if winter is not a very pleasant time of the year, it is full of festivals and occasions. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years are some of the occasions this weather, so be stocked and prepared for it.
When you are trying to avoid the winter cold
Make sure you get your vitamins and greens in. There is a high possibility of craving for unhealthy food. Try to fill your meals with veggies and healthy stuff. Warm soup also helps your throat relax and your body feel warm in the cold weather. Last, but not least, take care of your health as winter approaches.
