It depends on what sort of winter you experience. You should ensure there is enough antifreeze in the coolant and the screenwasher system and keep the battery fully charged and ensure the routine maintenance is up to date and the vehicle should remain a reliable starter, though in fairness dampness is a greater enemy than cold - as the temperature drops it tends to dry the air.
A petrol engine in good condition should start reliably down to -15 C and beyond though warm-up time will be rather extended (until the heater begins to work). Reliable starting when the thaw sets in is a bigger problem.

Diesel engines aren't as good in very low temperatures and have to be in particularly good condition to start reliably in below freezing conditions...

When is the time to winterize rose bushes and how do I do this

I don't like to cut them all the way to the ground I keep them about thigh height. Mix up a bucket of mild bleach solution to dip your clippers in. Wearing gloves, locate a healthy leaf and cut just above that point. Dip clippers in bleach solution between each cutting to avoid transferring any nasties.

Finally using white glue seal the cut tips. Best time to do this is well before the first frost in autumn.

Homelite 26 BV Gas Leaf Blower

sounds like you had fuel leak into the cylinder over the winter. The liquid in the cylinder is what made it so hard to pull that first time, as it won't compress like air. What you do, is take the spark plug out, pull the starting rope several times, dry off the spark plug, and let both sit(plug out of the cylinder.) for a couple of hours. Then put the plug back in, put the wire back on it, put it on full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put it on half choke, and pull til it starts.

Check fuel lines and fuel filter. If unit has been sitting all winter carburetor may need to be overhauled.
