Winter is coming quickly this year. I’m going to start preparing for it now. I have already bought some warm sweaters and warm socks. But the thing I am worried about is my car.

I need to change my car tires from normal tires so snow tires. I also need to buy a new spade to dig the snow. Lasy year, we had so much snow. It took a long time every morning to dig my car out of the snow. My spade is old, so I’m going to buy a new one. I have to buy one early  because they soon sell out. I’m also going to buy de-icer spray. I can spray this on my car windows to melt the ice.

I have snow boots. They are good for walking in the snow, but not so good for walking on ice. Last year I fell over walking down a small slope. The ground was hard and cold and I hurt myself! This year, I will try and avoid places like that, and stay on flat ground. I’m lucky in that I don’t have to go out very early in the mornings. A few years ago, I had to leave my house at 7:00am to get to work. So I had to start clearing snow at 6:00am. The roads were very slippery because it was still early in the morning. This winter, the earliest time I have to leave my house is 9:00am. This will give me more time to clear snow, and hopefully, the roads will be easier to drive on.

We had a very hot summer this year. I hope we have a mild winter.

Have you started preparing for winter?
