I am also in the process of slowly trying to winterize my old house. I never anticipated winter with such dread until it became MY JOB to make this house a fortress of WARM. So I am caulk gunning, caulk roping and cellophaning up the windows, preparing the gardens, turning off the hose water and crossing my fingers that the chimney does not fall over until spring when a mason might have time to come and deal with it.
Winter, you are a stern mistress. Please be kind to my dear old, tattered home.
