Over the last 12 months – this planet has experienced some incredible and devastating weather patterns and events. From tsunamis, tornado’s…. to massive earthquakes – devastation has been wide-spread.
Last year’s winter across much of the United States was both frigid and record-breaking. Massive snow falls blanketed a good part of the country. I remember one weather broadcast that showed snowfall in every state except Hawaii. Just in the past week the Northeast has received snow very early unlike that which has been seen in many, many years.
I suspect the upcoming winter is going to be a rough one. Even here in the Southeast we had some rough times last winter. Around here – 1 inch of snow will shut everything down. There mere word of flurries will empty grocery stores of milk and eggs. Crazy.
In an effort to start preparing for this winter – I have done the following:
- Tested heating system a few weeks ago.
- Installed insulated covers over exterior faucets
- Anti-freeze for vehicles
- Got out my propane heater for the garage
- Replaced battery in my Ranger (was struggling a bit in warm weather)
