Do you remember those typical magazine quizzes that could be found in teen magazines? They usually asked things like, “What Season Are You?” You would answer a series of questions and learn whether you were a fall or a summer. Well, I am here to ask you a spin on that question: are you a winter person, or not? If you are, I have great new for you. If you are not, all I can say is that I am sorry.
This is because according to The Old Farmer's Almanac:
“...a decline in solar activity combined with ocean-atmosphere patterns in the Pacific and Atlantic will result in below-normal temperatures and above-normal snowfall during most of the winter across much of the United States.”
Those of you that never got “winter” as your season on your teen quizzes may want to either batten down the hatches or book your plane ticket for Florida, because it supposed to be a cold one. You winter folks out there, get excited because this season is supposedly going to be great! Whether you are now out stocking up on supplies to stay inside all winter or researching the best sled, what you shouldn’t forget about is your home. Your home also needs to get ready for this cold, snowy season so make sure that you have your furnace inspected early, your attic and outer walls insulated, windows sealed and even your water pipes insulated. Additionally, you can prepare for winter power outages with an automatic back up generator. For more information about preparing your home, contact A.B. May!
