I’ve been watching the football practice sessions at the school across the road from our house. It is a big reminder that the seasons will soon be changing. I enjoy watch those 7 & 8th graders work out more than I like watching the professionals teams.
It seems to me that city folk don’t give much thought to winter preparations until after September first. I would rather get the job done early so I don’t waste any football weekends working around the house.
Because everything takes longer than we think, we need to get started on heating season preparation. To be ready for the heating season means we need to start on our “to do” list now. The same schedule is true where you work too.
In early season football practice, they work on the basics of running, blocking and tackling. We need work on the basics of fixing doors and windows both at home and at work.
If you are adding insulation to your attic you need to plan it now and get the materials all lined up so when the weather cools just enough to work in the attic you can get’er done.
A little time and effort put in now will save you cash on your heating bills this winter. Add a storm door, fix up storm windows and caulk around the window frames. Patch that hole before the hornets move in. Seal cracks in the basement walls.
Take a real good look at the basement windows. Add clear plastic dome coversover basement window wells.
It is a great time to work outside around the house when it cools off in the evenings.
Maybe you can save enough on your heating bills to afford a weekend trip to watch your favorite football team play.
