Last week, Massachusetts encountered a major winter storm. Several areas saw over a foot of snowfall, including Milton MA, Braintree MA, and Quincy MA, and Weymouth MA. Coastal areas, like Scituate MA, encountered severe flooding. And many homeowners reported having frozen pipes (read how to prevent and deal with frozen pipes here: https://www.mass.gov/news/preventing-and-dealing-with-frozen-pipes).
Were you prepared for the recent storm? If not, check out the severe weather guide published by Family Handyman, which includes lots of great tips and suggestions, i.e., having a storm readiness kit, installing storm shutters, caulking any openings in the walls, reinforcing entry doors, building a safe room, and protecting your pets.

In homes with an open layout (generally where the kitchen and living room connect), a TV mount can be a great way to allow for TV viewing across rooms (and looks nice too).
Here are a few helpful tips for purchasing and installing TV mounts:
1) Get a fully adjustable TV mount, so that you can angle/tilt it a certain way.
2) Make sure it can actually hold your TV, since some only hold only up to 50".
3) Set it up in the center of the connecting rooms for best all-around viewing.
