Winter Checklist: 8 Must-Do Tasks Before the First Freeze
We may be rushing things a bit, but ready or not, winter is on the way in western Colorado.
By some accounts, and if the Old Farmers Almanac is to be believed, it's going to be an especially cold winter in western Colorado this year. Maybe, maybe not. How much snow will we get in Grand Junction? Will it be the usual couple of inches here and there, or is this the year when we get blanketed with white stuff most of the winter?
The reality is, nobody knows for sure exactly what the winter will be like, but we know that it will come. It always does.
The official start of winter is still pretty far down the road, but there are some things that we need to do before then. In fact, there are things we need to do before that first hard freeze - and that could happen within the next month. That's why I want to share some reminders with you of some things that we need to do in the weeks ahead.
When it comes to preparing for winter, it is so easy to procrastinate. We always think we have plenty of time and we think we'll do it later. The next thing you know, it's here and you end up scrambling to do things that should have been done weeks ago - and then it's too late.
