Winter is Coming... Be Prepared for Winter Storms!
First and foremost, the sooner you prepare your building for winter, the more likely you are to successfully winterize it! Whether due to preventing issues as a result of the winter weather or even due to lack of availability of materials, being prepared now will make things much smoother when the weather gets really cold, maybe even icy, closer to January.
Now is also a great time to check any seals around your doors, particularly if you have a climate controlled facility. Make sure your building insulation and the components that wear with everyday use are in working order and are prepared for the weather to come.
One interesting side note is the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a colder-than-normal winter for most of the country due to decreased solar activity. It states that while a few parts of the country will have a milder winter, others will have significantly increased chances for snow and blistering cold.
Regardless of whether or not you put any stock in the Farmer’s Almanac, now is a great time to take action to protect your building and investment over the coming months.
