September is the month for moving indoors, saying goodbye to long evenings on the patio, hot, sunny afternoons in the pool and a leisurely summer schedule.
Things to do around the house in September:
Have the chimney inspected and cleaned.
Put away window screens and put up storm windows.
Clean gutters before fall rain.
Have the furnace inspected.
Have carpets cleaned.
Local journalism is essential.
