Chores We Do at Daylight Savings Time

A picture of our side yard
Here are some chores that we do when we change the clocks back in the fall.  Yes, I know the time change was last weekend, but hey, I was busy at my scrapbook retreat!
  • change the batteries in our smoke/carbon monoxide detectors
  • clean out the dryer hose thoroughly to help prevent lint buildup
  • make sure that we have enough medicine in the house for the upcoming cold and flu season (ugh!)
  • review our emergency supplies: do we have enough food, water, flashlight batteries, etc, in case of a winter storm?
  • install storm doors
  • put away garden hoses
  • put away patio furniture and Handy Boy's outdoor toys
  • prep the lawnmower to be stored over the winter
  • put gas into the snowblower
What's going on in your neck of the woods: Are there any other chores that you do this time of year to get ready for winter?  Do you live in an area that doesn't do daylight savings time?  Or, do you live in an area of the world where you are starting summer soon?

How organized!!! Brilliant to tie these chores into daylight savings...too early on labour day, too late once it already snows!
