Daylight savings time begins this Sunday, at 2 a.m. Nov. 3. Along with changing your clocks, it is also a good idea to change the batteries in your smoke alarms.
And given the tendency for Kenmore power outages, it is also a good time to stock up on batteries for flashlights, or candles if you prefer.
Check your porch/entry lights to see if they are working. If you have a deck, make sure to keep the drain clear to prevent rain from puddling on the deck. Replace weatherstripping and caulking on the inside of your doors and windows.
