Watch out for Winter Weather

As we have already seen, several storms have crossed the UK shores this autumn, – with Storm Babet hitting the North hard and storm Ciarán causing problems on the South coast and the Channel islands, it is important to make sure that you are ready for the onslaught of storms and bad weather that are typical in a UK winter.

High winds are a common feature of storms, so making sure that you are well prepared for them is important. Now is the time to have any work done to reduce the impact of high winds – have trees checked by a tree surgeon, and replace a rickety old fence with the help of a professional like this fencing Loughborough based company

Another common problem with winter storms is flooding. If you live in an area that is susceptible to flooding, then you should always check the flood warnings for your area, as this will give you a chance to make the necessary preparations before the flood water starts to rise. Having flood defences and moving things from the ground floor of your home are some of the things that you can do.

Snow and cold is also something that we can expect in the winter, and this can make driving particularly dangerous. Make sure that your car is in good repair, and you have a kit in your car with blankets, water and spare batteries and phone chargers in case you are stranded anywhere in the snowy weather.
