Walk around your home and yard with something on which to take notes. And look for anything that might be a problem during a winter storm, especially when it comes to structural issues. Loose siding or shingles that could blow away
. Also, openings where wind-swept rain could enter, toys or appliances that need to be stored or covered to protect them from strong winds. Take your time and make sure to examine the walls, windows, roof and foundation. Note anything that needs to be replaced or fixed and get it done within the week.
