17 Nov Preparing for the Winter Weather
The winter is here and the weather is starting to get worse! As Christmas approaches, many of us are keeping our fingers crossed for snow over the festive season. But as well as the fun side of this winter weather, there are also lots of problems that it can cause too. Here are some of the things to look out for this winter…
Your Car – Driving in the winter is more hazardous than it is in the summer. The weather can make driving conditions much more treacherous and also the fact that the sun is lower in the sky at times makes driving much more difficult. When the winter arrives, it is a good idea to get your car checked to make sure that it is safe and to ensure you have all the things you need in case of bad weather – from winter tyres to a de-icing kit for cold mornings.
Damage to Property – Bad weather can cause a lot of damage to property, so make sure that you get any repairs that need doing done now to reduce the risk of this happening. If you have a fence that is not looking all that secure for example, contact this fencing Gloucester based company https://www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/fencing/ to get it sorted before the winter.
Flooding – Unfortunately one of the consequences of the winter weather can be flooding. Keep a close eye on the weather and any flood alerts and make sure that you have a plan if it is looking like you might be at risk of flooding.
