In the north you must make sure you have fire wood chopped if you have a fireplace and gather items for when you are snowed in, but down south you must make sure you have your hurricane rations together and plenty of water in case you can’t get out of the home after a storm! Either way you look at it there is preparation for either north or south and it doesn’t have to be a chore if you do a little at a time. Whether you are using a gas furnace or an air conditioner 1 of the most important things is to make sure it gets worked on and that if it has a filter that the filter gets changed once a week and make sure there is gas or oil for the gas furnace. If you keep those things modern and done throughout the year then there will less of emergency troubles down the road. So it doesn’t absolutely matter if you live up north or down south being prepared is vital to both.
