Last spring the country was hit with “The beast from the East”, the worst cold snap the country had been faced with for years. Roads were closed, people were fighting over the last loaf of bread, the country was at a standstill! Honestly, most of us weren’t prepared for it at all.
To avoid that happening again I have some tips for getting winter ready;
Get your boiler checked
Keep your heating on
Maintain a constant regular temperature in your house.
Stock up on essentials
Everyone was laughing before the storm when videos went viral of people filling their trolleys with loaves of bread and litres of milk. It wasn’t long before those laughing were running out of stuff! Stock up when you hear about incoming bad weather
Make sure you car is safe
Ensure you have decent tyres and enough coolant/anti-freeze in your car. Lubricate doors and keyholes so you can still open them when they freeze.
Bring pets inside
If it’s too cold for you to be outside in your bare feet, it’s too cold for them too. Keep them safe indoors until the bad weather passes.
Apparently we are due another bit of snow in the next week or so, what are your top tips to prepare for bad winter weather?
