As Anne of Green Gables so simply put it, “I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” The month of October brings stunning fall colors, cozy bonfires, spooky events, and other fall festivities.
This is also an excellent time to prepare your home for the colder weather ahead, start thinking about any winter cabin getaways you want to book, and decorate your front porch for Halloween if you haven’t already!
Ways to Prepare Your Home for Colder Weather
Northern Colorado winters are notoriously harsh. It’s not uncommon to experience sub-zero temperatures, brutal winds, or even worse, a dreaded bomb cyclone. That’s why it’s important to prepare your home for the upcoming winter weather as best as you can. Take a weekend or two to tackle these home maintenance chores to give your home the best fighting chance. This will ensure your home withstands the elements and stays happy and healthy for many winters to come.
