I usually wash the windows one last time, Put away the lawn furniture and backyard toys, put the rubber snow mat on the deck, clean up the garden & plant some new spring bulbs and cover my clematis vines with multch, mow the lawn one last time and dig the snow shovels out of the back of the garage as well as make sure I have the snowbrush in my car. Oh, and put away the summer clothes/shoes and wash/take out the winter ones!

we put up storm windows and put weather stripping on the upstairs exit to keep cold wind out. our house is old so we also have to tape up some drafty windows. i think we will be moving to a warmer house somtime this winter

Don't forget to shut off your outside taps too. You don't want them to freeze.
