List of thinings to do before winter.

I have a bad AOS and I am planning on changing it. While I have the car in repair mode I was planning on cleaning the throttle body and doing a tune up. I will also be flushing the cooling system and changing all the oils engine and transmission included. Basically I will do all of this before storing the car for the winter and I was wondering if anyone has any tips on what else should be done or tips on getting it all done right. I appreciate all the imput.

Finish shake shingles on dormers on roof.
Finish outside painting.
Get power to chicken coop.
Winterize bees.
Shut off outside water.
Tune up snowblower.
New tires wife's car.
Water and sprinkles off, all properties.
Shovels and salt to all properties.

I'm sure I'm missing something...

That was my first thought.

List:

1) Move someplace warmer.
