After two frosty moringings the leaves are turing colors.  Fall winds have started removing the leaves from the trees and putting them in your yard.  Now is the time of the year to begin getting your home ready for winter.  My number one hint is to remove the garden hoses from the faucets outdoors.  A self draining faucet will not work if the hose is attached and is keeping the faucet from draining.  It is so easy to avoid a frozen and broken faucet.  Disconnect the hose.  Realty Times, and online trade publication, has an article about other ways you can prepare your home for winter.  CLICK HERE to read the article.
