Here in New England we prepare for winter with a fall home maintenance checklist, we also enjoy iced coffee year round. It’s just the way we do things. Whether we’re shoveling three feet of snow off the roof in the winter or relaxing on the patio in the summer, an iced coffee is not far off our radar.
It’s that time of year again, time to get out the fall checklist for home maintenance and get to work. Today I’m going to share with you my fall checklist and an easy recipe for Irish Iced Coffee – a great way to relax and reward yourself for getting your checklist done!
Fall Home Maintenance Checklist
They say it’s going to be a brutal winter this year, and I don’t doubt it. We’ve been watching the squirrels stock-pile food since early August. They’ve been working extra hard this year, and the harder the squirrels work to stock pile their winter feast, the more snow you can expect. Last year our largest storm measured 22 inches of snow in just 2 days. Only time will tell what old man winter has in store for us this year.
Whether we have a light or heavy winter, there’s one thing for sure; the snow will pile up and there will be a lot of work to do around the house. From shoveling the walkways and driveway to decorating the house for the holidays, winter tasks are never-ending. First, however, we must prepare. Here’s a quick checklist of things I’m going over this fall to make sure our house is ready for winter.
Fall Checklist: Home Maintenance
- Inspect and clean gutters
- Remove hoses, drain exterior water spigots & irrigation
- Inspect roof for damage
- Inspect and clean chimney
- Fill gas tank and remove battery from lawn mower
- Store spring-fall lawn equipment
- Store patio furniture and barbecue grill
- Get shovels and winter snow removal equipment out and ready
- Stock up on Whiskey & International Delight Iced Coffee
I would add to the checklist, put kitty litter, snow brush and ice scraper in the car. However, we live in New England – those things never leave the car! I know there are a lot more things on the fall home maintenance checklist, but this is a great start.
There’s no doubt that it will take several weekends to root through the checklist and complete everything you need to do before the first snowflakes fly. So, reward yourself each weekend with a nice Irish iced coffee.
