Whilst we have had a reprieve from winter for the past month, it is due to arrive iwth a vengence. Take a moment and do a final check on your furnace, ensuring all is in good working order and the filter is clear. Also, do a quick inspectino on all of your windows and doors for air leaks, empy all outdoor hoses and put your snowshovels where they are easily found! Finally -- mice are looking for warm winter nests, so keep an eye out in your garage for any signs, taking immediate action if they are seen. And take your time on the road - it is better to slow down and arrive, then hurry and not.
