    TOM: When holiday guests travel over the river and through the woods for a visit it’s a good idea to make sure they can spot your house by the numbers. Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.

    TOM: Hard-to-spot house numbers aren’t just frustrating for visitors; they can also slow emergency response if they need to find your home. To prevent confusion, display large, clear numbers on both your home and your mailbox.

    LESLIE: If you have a long driveway or hard-to-spot entrance make sure your address is easily visible to those driving by, and illuminate it after dark.
