So....its December. IN IOWA. Are you ready? Is your car ready? Is your house ready? Lets check! Out west they already have 12"+ of snow (and yes, I am jealous....I love snow shoeing & snow removal, odd I know).
The lists below provide a reminder of what we should all be checking as we head into the winter season. There is one I would add to the HOME Checklist:
CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS! Be preventive for those ice dams before the start! Or if you starting to feel like me, consider how close trees with needles or small leaves (like willow or locust trees) are to your home.
Finally for your car--I did pretty well on this list! I did however had to remember where I put my camping shovel from last year and put it back in my trunk. By favorite thing on the list--waxing your car. Its strangely soothing to do this, or maybe I just really like my car.
Have a great weekend and get ready for the first day of Winter to arrive (which is also the shortest day of the year!)--mark your calendars--December 21.
