I know. I know. We're quite a few days away from winter. BUT it's never to
early to be prepared when you live in the
mountains since Mother Nature can change her weather-mind in a spilt second. If
mountain folks don't prepare, they may face some expensive problems (like broken
pipes, for one) later on.
Below are a few tips to get your Lake Arrowhead (mountain)
home"prepared" for "Old Man Winter."
Fireplace: It's a perfect time, if you haven't already, to
call a Chimney Sweep. He/she can make sure your fireplace is
not only clean, but safe.
Roof: Is your roof ready for rain and snow? A good check-up
may be in order.
Landscaping: Sprinklers (irrigation systems) should be
turned off and hoses drained.
Pipes! Make sure exposed pipes are "wrapped." These problems
can be soooo expensive IF they freeze and burst.
Weekend cabin/home: If you're a part-timer, make sure you
drain your pipes before heading home, and turn off the water. A
SHUT OFF VALVE is an awesome item to have installed.
Doors and Windows: Weather-stripping and caulking should be
your best friend!
Gutters: Clean them of leaves and pine-needles.
Power Outages: In case the power goes out (and it can!):
Make sure you have plenty of candles, extra flashlights, loads of batteries
& a lantern or two and matches. Generators are always
Snow Equipment: Place your snow shovels in an easy-to-get-to
spot. If you have a snow blower, it's a great time to take it for a "check
Food and Drinking Water: Bottled water and
can(non-perishable) goods should be on hand (3-4 days...just in case)
