Power Outage

If you do not have a generator or a wood stove how will you heat your residence in a prolonged winter power outage? You may need to leave the house and go to a friends. In that case you want to drain the water pipes and add RV antifreeze (propylene glycol) to the traps.

If you do not have a back up power supply, consider purchasing a battery backed up sump pump (cost $150 - $300). If you consider purchasing a gasoline generator (starting at $150) have an electrician instal a transfer switch to disconcert the furnace from the grid. Always run the generator outside and size it to all possible loads.

Storms

Storms will be more severe so if there are trees near your house, think of them as a falling object. Have an arborist evaluate them. Also do not park under the trees in a storm.
