Be sure you are prepared for the first snow storm in Topeka with these winter weather tips.

With the holiday season now in full swing, the threat of snow in Topeka is becoming more of a reality. In order to save yourself time and frustration when the first flakes begin to fall (perhaps accompanied by several more inches of flakes), it is important to be prepared with these snow preparation tips from the Topeka snow removal pros at Schendel Lawn & Landscape.

Bring patio furniture, toys and any other belongings inside. Even though the days may still be warm enough to spend time outside, it is a good idea that your entire property is prepared for the frost and the snow. Patio furniture will weaken in extreme temperatures and is much safer kept in the garage or basement so it will not be damaged or blow away. Also, toys can be quickly buried and perhaps ran over in the midst of a snow storm.

Purchase all of your snow removal equipment now. Before you are stuck without a shovel, car ice scraper, or snow blower, make sure you have all of the snow removal equipment you may use on hand. Shoveling is the key to keeping your porch and/or entryway safe during a snowstorm. And without a car scraper, you may find yourself stuck for a long time waiting for the snow and ice to melt off the car. Another item to keep on hand is some sort of snow and ice melting mixture like salt, sand, or even kitty litter.

Be sure you are all set with your snow removal professionals. If you have not yet hired a snow removal company to bail you out of the snow this winter then you will want to do so now. Also, make sure that you have and understand your snow removal contract so that you are well aware of when and how often you will be plowed out when mother nature decides to sprinkle (or unload) snow this winter.
