It’s time to winterize your home

If you have been putting off winterizing your home, you may have woken to a little seasonal reminder this morning. Looking out the window this mid-October day, it is unusual to see snow falling here in central Massachusetts – as it is in other parts of the Eastern seaboard. If you want a sneak peak of what the season is likely to hold in store, check out AccuWeather.comcom’s Chief Meteorologist and Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi’s winter weather forecast for 2009-2010.
