It is starting to get cold in the PNW and the Mid-West is currently getting some of Mother Nature's Winter Love. Temps here have been relatively mild, dipping into the 20's, but Winter along the coast is generally mild compared to that in the valley to the East. I have a stock of heating supplies, pellets for the stove, fresh gas for the generator, some extra food preps, 100 gallons of stored potable water, 3 cases of bottled water, and the usual other emergency food preps in the pantry. Blankets, sleeping bags, and warmer cloths are ready should a prolonged power outage occur. Chain saw is all tuned up with fresh fuel mix at the ready, and both vehicles freshly serviced and full gas tanks. Snow tires are on the 4X4, so it is ready, just in case. I know we have members in harsher winter climates than mine, so for this TOTM; lets talk about what needs attention, preps, and any winter tricks you folks have implemented.
