Snow is on its way, its official, we are getting our first FOR REAL winter storm in Minnesota literally tomorrow. My neck of the woods is looking at two inches at least and another chance of several more inches on Friday. It may be a no-go for many folks who were planning on traveling for Thanksgiving. Seeing family is important but seriously not worth driving in the kind of snow and ice that we often see here this time of the year. As for this girl, not leaving my warm little house is sounding better by the minute!

The temperature is starting to drop! That means folks in my neck of the woods are busying themselves preparing for the snow. Of course, it’s not just Minnesota that gets a bit chilly come wintertime. In fact, there are people all over the US that are doing their best to prepare for winter. A topic you can find out more about in my post below. 

Heating 

You do not want to be caught in a property that has no heating provision in the depths of winter. In fact, not only can it be very uncomfortable, but it can be downright dangerous to your health as well! 

With that in mind, doing all you can to ensure your heating system continues to work effectively when the temperate falls is essential. Of course, that does mean slightly different things depending on the type of system you have. 

In fact, for those with HVAC systems, as popularmechanics.com suggests having their unit checked and serviced before the cold weather hits are vital. While, for those with log burning fires, having their chimneys cleaned out and stocking up on wood are the most critical tasks. 

Then you have the systems that work by circulating hot water around the home, that need to be prepared for winter too. Something you can do by cladding the pipes, or by using the freeze protection products like heatline.com have on offer. These being something that can help you to keep your heating working at maximum efficiency all winter long.

Seal the outside 

Next, to keep your home warm and toasty in the winter, you need to seal the outside. Now many people think this just means sealing up any gaps and drafts they find around doors and windows. However, this isn’t actually the case. 

To keep your home as warm as possible, you will also need to inspect your roof for loose tiles and holes. Then there is the task of sealing any wood or porous brick or stone around the outside as well, which you can find out more about at sites like extremehowto.com/. In fact, by doing this, you help to keep in as much heat as possible and ensure you and your whole family are nice and warm no matter how much snow is outside. 

Bedding and blankets 

Now we have dealt with the outside of the home, let’s turn our attention to the inside instead. In particular, staying warm and cozy while you are sleeping is pretty essential during those cold winter months. 

Happily, this is something that you can do pretty easily if you change out your standard bedding for sheets made from brushed cotton. In fact, if you can get a comforter that is a higher tog too, you can ensure that your bed will be one of the warmest places in your home there is and an awesome place to warm up after being out in the snow! 

Although, investing in a few throws to keep downstairs and display strewn over the sofa isn’t a bad idea either. In fact, not only can these look super stylish but they’re the best for curling up under after a long days work too. Especially if you combine them with a nice glass of wine and a good book!
