Winterization/Car Cover

This January i will be leaving the country for a few months, and as i am in ND that means i need to prepare my car for the winter months when i am not around. What is the best car cover you guys would reccomend for a focus, and what other stuff should i do to the car before leaving.

If it's just for a few months....probably nothing is necessary. If you don't worry about the alarm system, you might want to store the battery in the house.

Car covers.....a total hassle for a car used daily, maybe ok for longer storage in the winter. I don't like the things myself. A wind-shield cover may be a better bet.......cover the seats to prevent sun damage.

i got my car cover from autoanything.com. I like using it, but i hate takin it off cause it leaves a bunch of garbage on the car. Its a real snug fit, doesnt blow in the wind like some think it would, keeps the uv rays off the car.. pretty much does the job.
